The history of the Volvo


In the beginning, I would like to mention that the name of the Volvo means В«I rollВ». That the movement forward.


In 1915, was published in the trademark Volvo. At the end of the First World War, she released advanced vehicles with a convertible. They were developed by the great engineers Gustaf Larson and Assanom Gabrielsonom. Cars produced at that time were painted in different colors, that made them beautiful and original.


We should also emphasize that the founders of Volvo has always held an important principle is safety. About it testifies that they are one of the first to use the side-mounted airbags, as well as disc brakes.


In 1929, was sold 1383 of the machine. This was not a bad result.


In 1931, began a rapid decline in demand for the Swedish car from the international economic crisis.


At the end of 1941, Volvo is slowly beginning to gain momentum. 3 years later was released a new model PV 444, which has been the engine 40 HP, and quite economical fuel consumption. That was a good option in the difficult post-war years.


In 1953, is the presentation of the Volvo Duett. These were the cars of the family type, which have found wide response among representatives of small business and became famous in the whole world.


In 1977, Volvo produces new cars of model 240 and 262. The design of these vehicles have worked experienced Italians from Bertone.


Yes, Volvo is the most prestigious, expensive and safe car with a high quality mark.
