Volvo Car Corporation is a Swedish premium automobile manufacturer established in 1927, headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, where it operates out of the VAK building. It is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group of China.

Volvo manufactures and markets SUVs, station wagons, sedans, and coupes. It has approximately 2,300 dealers worldwide, with its largest markets being the U.S., Sweden, China, and Belgium. In 2011, Volvo sold 449,255 cars worldwide, 20.3% up from 2010.

Volvo’s current model lineup consists of the XC90 and XC60 SUVs, XC70, V60, and V90 wagons, and S60, S80, and S90 sedans, including hybrid and Polestar versions of some models.

Volvo was originally founded as a subsidiary of ball bearing maker SKF. When Volvo was introduced on the Swedish 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 acquired by the Ford Motor Company, and then bought by Geely Holding Group in 2010.

Volvo is best known for its safety, and has marketed its historic reputation for reliability and safety for much of its existence. Before government safety regulations, Volvo was already at the forefront of safety engineering, pioneering or being among the first to standardize features such as laminated glass, the three-point seat belt, rear-facing child seats, airbags, blind spot warnings, and other driving aids such as braking assistance. Its models regularly score high on safety evaluations.

Volvo also somewhat has a legacy of performance, with sports versions of many of its models, and platforms such as the 240 achieving niche popularity among tuners and racers. It has also had some motorsports success, mainly in touring car races. Its current performance trim level is called Polestar.
