Volvo - Swedish Engineering Envied By All

The name Volvo means 'I roll' in Latin. The Volvo automobile was first introduced to the world in 1928 when the first Volvo OV 4 rolled off the factory floor. In 1999 Ford Motor Company bought Volvo's car division (Volvo Group also makes commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses and heavy construction vehicles). Ford put Volvo cars on the open market in '08 and just last year Ford made public the fact that Volvo may be sold to a Chinese manufacturer during 2010.

Volvo vehicles are known for being very safe cars, as Swedish car engineering is highly regarded the world over. Volvo cars are reported to have long lives, as the average Volvo is said to last for 20 years before being discarded - second only to Mercedes.
