Get a new car and a vacation
Fans continue their pilgrimage to the classic factory on the outskirts of Göteborg, Sweden.
The new Volvo plant in the U.S. is set to open in 2018; but picking up your own new car at the factory in Sweden will still be an option, in fact it has never been more popular. Hardcore Volvo fans continue their pilgrimage to the classic factory on the outskirts of Göteborg, Sweden.

Amie and Mark Mitchell of Simsbury, Connecticut were among the first Americans to pick up the new Volvo XC 90 at the Volvo factory in Göteborg last summer. Mark, himself a Volvo man, celebrated his 50th anniversary with the iconic Swedish carmaker. (Indeed, the Volvo dealer worked for the tourist delivery program in Sweden in 1965 when he was only 16 years old.)

"The program continues to be one of the best deals in the world if you want a new car and a great place to travel to and explore," says Mitchell, who picked up his twenty-first car this way in August. "Sweden is a wonderful country to visit and the new Volvo is a fantastic way to get around in the charming Nordic country. You buy a car and get a vacation."

Mitchell and Amie, who is from Stockholm, visit Sweden every summer: "We go back and visit Amie’s folks and eat her mom’s great food! I love Sweden and its pace of life. We love to golf and explore the Baltic. If you need any travel advice please check us out on the web at mitchellvolvo.com and we will be happy to help you.
