Volvo Group - Report on 2000 operations was published on February 1, 2001

Effective January 2, 2001, as a result of the acquisition of Mack Trucks and Renault V.I., the Volvo Group has been substantially strengthened. The volumes of our truck business have been nearly doubled, and we are the largest manufacturer in the heavy-truck segment in Europe and the second largest in the world, with significantly improved volumes in the medium-heavy segments as well. In the heavy diesel engine sector we are among the four very largest producers in the world.
