Volvo Cars (Swedish: Volvo personvagnar), stylized as VOLVO in the logo, is a Swedish luxury vehicle manufacturer established in 1927 and headquartered on Hisingen, in Gothenburg. Since 2010 it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Geely of China.
Volvo Cars was founded as a subsidiary of the ball bearing manufacturer SKF. When AB Volvo was introduced on the Stockholm stock exchange in 1935, SKF sold most of the shares in the company. Volvo Cars was owned by AB Volvo until 1999, when it was sold to the Ford Motor Company as part of its Premier Automotive Group. In 2010, the Geely Holding Group then acquired Volvo Cars from Ford.
