Who we are!
After decades at the forefront of automotive safety, Volvo Cars has quietly become one of the world’s most tech-intensive car brands. On top of this we also are one of the world’s fastest growing premium car brands combining growth with exploration of new business models for mobility.
Volvo Cars believes the electrification of the automotive industry will be a gradual process, meaning there will be significant ongoing demand for efficient hybrid powertrains alongside fully electric offerings.
