1. About Volvo Philippines
Founded in 1927 by Svenska Kullagerfabriken with the leadership of industrialist Assar Thorvald Nathanael Gabrielsson as the Managing Director and automotive engineer Erik Gustaf Larson as the company’s Technical Manager, they created the first-ever Volvo model called the OV4 Touring.
Since then, Volvo has been using only the best quality materials to manufacture automobiles that are highly regarded not only for their durability, but for their outstanding quality. It is in this commitment to excellence that the brand is driven forward to build the next great Volvo Cars idea.
Volvo has created dozens of innovations that changed the automotive industry worldwide. One of which is the three-point safety belt introduced by Nils Bohlin in 1959. Subsequently, an estimated one million lives have been saved upon its fabrication.
Another advancement developed by the company is ‘Lambda Sond,’ which is now utilized by almost every car in the world, continuing to reduce harmful emissions by 90%.
Beyond groundbreaking technological innovations, Volvo has also built a name for itself in the motorsport world by winning in the 1965 Safari Rally through the PV544, as well as the Acropolis rally with the 122S Amazon in the same year.
In 1994, the brand surprised the motorsport world by being the first-ever manufacturer team to enter an estate racing car with the 850.
As years passed, Volvo continued to evolve its engineering as well as its operations. In 2008, the company got into management ownership under Ford Motor Company’s Premier Automotive Group. A year after, an acquisition by Chinese automaker Geely Automobile came into effect.
In the Philippines, Volvo is exclusively imported and distributed by the Scandinavian Motors Corporation. They are a 100% Filipino-owned company that brought the luxury vehicle brand into the country in 1994.
Volvo Cars Philippines’ headquarters is located along Don Chino Roces Avenue, in Makati City. The brand boasts of range-topping models that have been the benchmarks of quality and safety in the automotive industry.
