Khodrocar - Volvo is a Swedish heavy industry company that manufactures heavy vehicles and related parts. Its products include trailer, truck, bus, transportation and construction equipment, marine and industrial propulsion systems, aerospace equipment and financial services.
Volvo was set up in 1924 as a subsidiary of the SKF Group with the participation of SCF's Chief Financial Officer, Asar Gabrielsen and one of its chief engineers, Gustav Larson. The purpose of the company was to build vehicles that resist the cold weather of Sweden and are optimized for frozen and rough roads.
Volvo finally started in 1927 as a car company in Gothenburg. Volvo's first production car series '' V4 '' was released by the company on April 14, 1927.
During the years 1927 to 1929, only 996 units of this model were manufactured and finally replaced in April 1929 with the PV651. The success of the sales of this product helped Volvo to acquire the company that supplied Volvo's car engine and, from this point on, pursue car production more seriously.
In May 1932, Volvo set new goals to produce cheaper cars (with the motto for everyone). In 1950, Volvo suspended the supply of luxury cars for some time until the 1964 "164" was introduced. The P1800 was the first Volvo sports car to be produced in the 1960s and became so popular that it was featured in the popular television series "The Saint" by Roger Moore.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Volvo experienced the highest car sales figures. The 1980s coincided with the introduction of entirely new models of the 850 Series that featured front-wheel drive systems.
However, the release of the new models could not alleviate Volvo's problems, and on January 28, 1998, it was officially announced the sale of Volvo Cars. Prior to that, Volvo Karz was owned by AB Volvo Commercial Vehicles, which eventually finalized a $ 6.45 billion deal with Volvo Karz, an American automaker.
In 2010, Ford sold Volvo Karz for $ 1.8 billion to the Chinese company Geely. Currently, Volvo is the only manufacturer of heavy-duty vehicles, including trucks and buses, which are managed by Geely.
With the money obtained (in agreement with Ford), Volvo was considering buying Scania, a Swedish pioneer in truck production, but the deal was canceled and canceled by the European Union for competitive reasons. Instead, Volvo bought the Renault French Commercial Vehicles division and American truck maker MacTrax (then owned by Renault France). As part of a buyout plan for the Renault truck production segment, the French company also bought a 20% stake in AB Volvo.
Its products include trailers, trucks, buses, transport and construction equipment, marine and industrial propulsion systems, aerospace components and financial services. The company's most notable name is the Volvo Trucks segment, which currently produces the world's most powerful lethal and one of the world's largest truck builders.
Volvo's successful products include PV60, 164, 264, 760, 960 and S90 machines. After the successful launch of the XC90 Sport, Volvo decided to introduce its new luxury car, the S90, and replace it with the previous one, the S80 Sedan. Although the "S80" looked really good, it could achieve only minimal sales in a decade. The "S80" with its conservative design failed to achieve the expected sales of Volvo.
Volvo In Iran
Volvo has been in the Iranian market since 1934, according to available evidence, the company has built three trucks for the first time and delivered them to Iran. Volvo's first partner was Rena (now responsible for Saipa Diesel's after-sales service) and started with the N Series assembly, later Volvo bought some of Zamyad's stake and tracked its production.
In 1984 he began production of the famous F series with Iran Kaveh and now offers various models such as FM / FHNH in Iran. Volvo Trucking is one of the few manufacturers that has paid the ultimate respect to its Iranian customers, so Volvo has launched a Persian section dedicated to Iranian users on its official website, which offers very good information in Persian.
Swedish company Volvo has announced that it plans to launch cars by the year 2020 that are 100% "anti-death". Customers who buy Volvo sedans or chassis for the next few years will never be killed in a car accident, and they won't even have deep injuries.
