Our history

Volvo was established in 1927. In the same year, the first mass-produced Volvo car rolled off the production line on the island of Hisingen in Göteborg, Sweden. The next year, when Volvo began to manufacture trucks as well as cars, the company also started developing military vehicles. Since then, Volvo has grown from a small local industry to become one of the world’s largest manufacturers of heavy trucks, buses, construction equipment, and marine & industrial engines.

And we’re the only truck manufacturer in the world that does this – carrying out the world’s most challenging test of its kind on vehicles and machinery, for a level of safety and protection that makes us leaders in the field.
