A Brief History

Volvo was founded in 1915 and the brand was originally registered as a trademark in 1911 with the aim of using it for a new series of SKF ball bearings. In 1924, the sales manager of SKF, as well as an engineer from the Royal Institute of Technology, decided to construct a Swedish car. They intended to build cars that can withstand the country's rough terrains and temperatures. The company began its activities in 1926, after a year's preparations, the first car rolled off the line in 1927 from their factory in Gothenburg. The Volvo Group sold the Volvo Car Corporation in January of 1999 to the Ford Motor Company for $6.4 billion US dollars. The brand then fell under the Premier Automotive Group along with other brands such as Aston Martin and Jaguar.
