Sweden isn’t generally known for its automobile production but Volvo has done very well to put Sweden on the automobile map. Founded in 1927 in Gothenburg Sweden by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustav Larson who decided to make a Swedish built car designed for Sweden’s tough conditions. Their first vehicle was the Volvo OV 4 which rolled out the factory in 1928. Volvo was not a car brand exclusively though and maintained production of marine engines, trucks, aircraft engines and busses. In more recent times Volvo’s car division was sold in it’s entirety to Ford for $6.45 billion. In more recent developments it’s possible that the company will be sold once more to the Chinese Geely motor corporation.
