Volvo on a Waterfront Pier

The Volvo, originally introduced in Sweden in 1927, was designed to be a car that could withstand the harsh Scandinavian climate.  Today, the Volvo is still known as a rugged, all-around family vehicle.

The first model, the OV4, was on the market for two years before it was replaced by the six-cylinder PV650 in 1929.  In 1938, the PV53 was introduced, and that model was manufactured through World War II.

The first car to be exported to the United States was the PV444, and it was a huge success.  The P120 series followed in 1957 and the P140 was introduced in 1967.  About 8 years later, Volvo announced their popular 240 and 260 series vehicles.  Early 1982 saw the introduction of the 760 series, followed in the late 1980s by the small 440 and 480 family cars.

While the Volvo wasn't exactly known for its curves—it is square and boxy—it did become known for its unparalleled safety, which makes it a favorite family vehicle for soccer moms everywhere today.  Today's models are available in two-door, four-door, and wagon styles, as well as all-wheel drive and SUV varieties.  Learn more about Volvo vehicles and view Volvo photos by browsing through the following websites.
