About Volvo Car North America, LLC

You can find the road's Swede spot with a little help from Volvo Cars of North America (VCUSA). The company is a subsidiary of Sweden's Volvo Car Corporation, itself a subsidiary of China-based carmaker Geely Automobile and parent Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. VCUSA serves as the marketing, sales, parts, service, and technology and training arm of the 60-year brand for auto dealers in the US. The company's models include the S-Range (sedans), the V-Range (station wagons), the C-Range (coupes and convertibles), and XC-Range (SUVs/crossovers). The company also offers financing through Volvo Car Finance North America. VCUSA is headquartered in Rockleigh, New Jersey.

Company Background

Volvo Car was first to make cars fitted with three-point safety belts; even before the 1959 rollout, safety has been fundamental to its brand identity. In 2011 VCNA launched the S60, a midsize sports sedan styled as "naughty", to take the brand to the next level and turnaround sales. Targeting the under-40-year-old driver looking for a reliable but edgy model, the company offered, for a limited time, goods, such as a virtual sedan, Volvo tire, steering wheel, or its logo, on the iPhone app, MyTown (created by Booyah).

After more than a year of negotiations, Ford Motor completed its sale of Volvo Car Corporation to Geely in mid-2010. The $1.8 billion deal preserved Volvo Car's headquarters and manufacturing operations in Sweden and Belgium.

Ford Motor purchased the Volvo automotive brand from Swedish truck maker AB Volvo in 1999. A decade later, jettisoning its overseas brands to return to profitability, Ford put Volvo on the auction block.
