We are Volvo Cars
We share a rich and purposeful heritage and even bolder future ambitions to match. Since 1927, we have created world-changing innovations: The modern seatbelt. The side impact protection system. The pedestrian detection system (to name just a few).
Today, Volvo Cars is one of the most well-known and respected premium car brands, preparing for a new future that will be all-electric, autonomous and connected. This proud history of innovation is the result of a collaborative, diverse and inclusive Volvo Cars community. Grounded in a shared passion for protecting people and our planet.
In short, without passionate people there is no positive progress… and likely no Volvo Cars. We’re looking for the change makers. The free thinkers. The self-motivators. The visionaries. The leaders. The dreamers. The believers. We’re looking for you.
