Volvo was founded by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson in April 1927. The company was formed on a background of quality and safety which were both of paramount importance, a concept that still applies to the Volvo cars of today.
One of Volvo’s most notable innovations is the use of the three-point safety belts. This was a world first and was just the start of Volvo’s safety innovations. In 2009, Volvo reported that one million lives had been saved since the invention of the three-point safety belt. And, it should be noted that Volvo did not keep this to themselves. They realised its safety potential and made it available to all manufacturers.
Let it be said that Volvo are very ambitious. And very passionate about safety. So passionate and so ambitious, in fact, that their 2020 vision is that “no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car” (Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars).
