Volvo is not a division of ford motor company, its a subsidiary i edited that. Big difference. --Dahlis 12:37, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Yes, it is a subsidary. I doubt however that the difference is that great. Volvo is now sharing its technology with all other Ford brands and utilized technologies from other Ford brands. Volvo, much like all other Ford marques, is a Ford brand. Thank you for contributions though. Regards, Signaturebrendel 14:51, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
The difference is that Volvo is run as a company of its own. A company that developes and produces their own cars in their own factories. Thats quite a big difference from being a brand only like for example Lincoln. --Dahlis 16:13, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
No it isn't all marques have their own designers and workers. Volvo uses Ford platforms and Volvo shares vehicle components with many Ford vehicles. Volvo has become an integral part of the Ford Motor Company. Secondly, there is no arguing that Volvo is a subsidary of the Ford Motor Company. It is! That's indisputable fact! Ford bought Volvo, its a Ford subsidary. Thank you. Regards, Signaturebrendel 17:59, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
I am not disputing the fact that Volvo Cars is owned by Ford Motor Company. I am just making it clear to you that Volvo is a separate company owned by Ford and not a division of Ford. --Dahlis 18:55, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
IT IS A DIVISION OF FORD. Ford has complete control over the fate of Volvo. Volvo uses Ford platforms and Ford technology. Ford has put "Volvo workers" to work of Ford cars (Ford 500). Ford has utilizes Volvo technology in Fords, Lincolns, Mecrcurys and Land Rovers. Volvo is now an integral part of the FoMoCo, Ford is thereby the manufacturer of Volvo cars. That's how it works. Ford bought Volvo gained control over it, puts its [Volvo] employes to work on other Ford models, started using Ford technology on Volvo cars, started using Volvo technology on Fords. I am saying it once again. Volvo is a division of Ford Motor Cars. It is not anymore independent than any other Ford division, not even Lincoln. Ford can fire and hire Volvo people, close and open factories, and uses common Ford technlolgy in Volvo cars. Look at the who Volvos are related to. Ford is the manufacturer of the vehicles sold as Volvo. That is indisputable fact!
Ford owns Volvo, its production sites, its resources and employs its workers. Regards, Signaturebrendel 20:44, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Volvo is none of these things. It makes trucks and boats. Volvo Cars is a subsidiary of Ford. – Kieran T (talk | contribs) 01:03, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Hah, you're all wrong, Volvo is Chinese now. Nice how disputes become meaningless if one waits long enough...  ⊂ Mr.choppers ⊃  (talk) 17:19, 24 September 2010 (UTC)


Is there a system in this template, I mean in terms of what car goes on what line, because i noticed that there are some cars missing: The upcoming Volvo C30 the fact that there are new models of the S80 and C70. --Dahlis 20:56, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Well, sort of. To the left you see the type of car (compacts, coupe, etc...) and you just arrange the vehicles in a way so they don't overlap. Regards, Signaturebrendel 21:10, 27 May 2006 (UTC)


I would like to suggest that we add additional years to the template. I mean, it is a Volvo Cars timeline so why does it start at the 60's? I realize that this template spans across multiple Volvo Cars model pages so shouldn't the template span from the 20's or 30's? Even the 544 which is displayed on the table as coming out in 1960 actually came out in 1958 but that year is not on the table. I attempted editing the template/table but decided it was a little too difficult for me at this time. --Tscarola 00:55, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

wrong date??[edit]

At the top it says "a subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company since 1998". How is it 1998 when Ford bought Volvo in 1999. If I am wrong and there is a good source leave an reply. (talk) 02:40, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
