Drivers in the Billings area may be surprised to learn that Volvo models are no longer made in Sweden. Volvo is currently owned by the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, a Chinese company which owns over 15 other vehicle makers. Even with this wide variety of brands, the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group is dedicated to ensuring that each automaker remains true to the unique aspects of their brand, while working to make them better for drivers worldwide. Learn more about who owns Volvo and who makes the Volvo models in this guide.

About The Auto Group

Based in Hangzhou, which is located in southeast China's Zhejiang Province, the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group launched their automotive business in 1997. They took control of the Swedish-made Volvo brand in 2010. So, the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group owns the brand, but who makes Volvo cars? Some drivers in the Laurel or Shepherd area may remember that for a brief period, Volvo was part of the Ford Motor Company, but currently, all Volvo vehicles are manufactured by the Geely Holding Group. 

What's The Future of The Brand?

Volvo has been producing their car and truck lines separately since 1999. The Zhejiang Geely Holding Group currently owns the car lineup and has invested an 8.2-percent stake in the truck lineup, with the ultimate goal of reuniting them. No changes are expected to be made soon, but the transition is planned to occur sometime in the not-so-distant future. 

Moving forward, Billings-area drivers can still expect attractive Scandinavian design, smart innovation, and cutting-edge technology, all of which are the hallmarks of the Volvo brand. Recent advancements in both production and design have also made Volvo vehicles more sustainable and safer than ever. Currently, the eco-friendly Volvo models are being equipped with the latest advanced safety technologies to add extra peace of mind to your Park City commute. All the vehicles in the new Volvo lineup, from the capable Volvo XC90 SUV to the sophisticated Volvo S60 Sedan, will continue to deliver the exquisite luxury, first-class safety, and high-quality performance that have made Volvo one of the world's premier automakers
