Volvo was established as a division of SKF, the Swedish ball bearing maker, in 1915, but didn’t produce its first car, the Volvo OV 4 until 1927.

The Volvo name is used on both trucks and passenger cars, although the two parts have been separate since 2000 when the Volvo Group sold the car maker to Ford.

When Ford divested itself of its luxury car brands, the American company sold Volvo Cars to Chinese automaker Geely in 2010.
