Our history - 1948


Things now began to happen and changed very rapidly. Following the War, the demand for all types of vehicles was huge.

  • In the space of a couple of years, the number of employees just about doubled to around 6,000.
  • For the first time Volvo was producing more passenger cars than any other vehicles.
  • By 1948 Volvo had become a tractor manufacturer to reckon with. The large T4 model and the smaller T21/T22 sold very well.
