The first mass-produced Volvo rolled off the assembly line of the plant in Gothenburg in 1927. Since then Volvo Car Group holds the position of the world leader in the production of innovative and safe vehicles. Nowadays Volvo is one of the most famous and respected car brands, and the company's sales market includes over 100 countries.
In accordance with a new company's goal Volvo Cars aims to provide customers with free movement with respect to their personal interests, sustainability and security. This goal is reflected in a number of business ambition: for example, the company works to ensure that half of the global sales will be fully electric vehicles by the middle of the decade, and 5 million consumers will be direct contacted.
