Volvo C30 Insurance Groups

Do you have or are you looking to buy a Volvo C30? This three-door near-luxury hatchback has been designed to entice younger buyers. The older models offer many levels of trim but the newer models only offer two – the SE Lux and R-Design. There are now only two types of engine available – a four-cylinder 1.6-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre petrol. These engines push the C30 up the insurance groups into the middle range, despite its compact size.

About Volvo

Early Beginnings

You’ve probably heard of Volvo before – but how much do you know about the company? Volvo is latin for ‘I roll’. And given how the company’s successes have snowballed, it was aptly named. Volvo was founded by Assar Gabrielsson, a sales manager for a ball bearing manufacturer, and an engineer by the name of Gustav Larson. The pair formed their company in 1924 and started designing cars to supply the Swedish market, which they believed lacked a car tough enough to handle Scandinavian driving conditions. By 1927 they had produced 280 cars and the brand became an immediate success, both nationally and worldwide.

First Car

Volvo's first car was an open tourer with a four-cylinder engine – in Swedish this was called an “Öppen Vagn 4 cylindrar”, so the car was dubbed the ÖV 4. You can still see a prototype of the car in the Volvo Museum in Stockholm.

It wasn't until 1944 that Volvo produced the car that would make it a truly international car manufacturer. The PV444 was a small passenger car, with two doors, four seats, and delivered good fuel economy. Within two weeks of its launch, Volvo received 2,300 orders.

Present Day

Volvo has become a truly international brand, with manufacturing taking place worldwide, as well as in Sweden. Volvo had held its value for decades, despite some turbulent financial times over its history. The brand remains popular due to its reputation for safety and reliability. The Geely Holding Group, a multinational car-manufacturer now owns the brand, and in 2017 Volvo achieved record sales for the fourth year in a row, with 571 thousand vehicles sold.
