Ford bought the Volvo car company in 1999. In 2010 Geely bought the Volvo Car Company.
Today there are two companies. 1: Volvo Cars that produces standard size cars. 2: Volvo Group that produces trucks, boat engines, buses and more.
Volvo is now the leading producer in what most people would call safe family cars.
