Volvo Hits 15 Million Car Mark

February 25, 2008

IRVINE, CA – The very first Volvo car, called the ÖV4, left the factory on Apr. 14, 1927. On Feb. 20, 2008, car number 15,000,000, a convertible Volvo C70, left the factory in Uddevalla. In the first year, production proceeded at a modest pace, with 297 cars being sold in 1927.

When that first car drove past the factory gates in 1927, it carried its “iron symbol” on the radiator grille. That mark was and still is a symbol of Swedish steel and quality. When car number 15,000,000 leaves the factory in Uddevalla, that symbol is still carried on the front.
