A highly modern, environmentally optimised and high-tech factory celebrates its 275th jubilee tomorrow - the Volvo Cars Body Components factory in Olofström truly goes back a long way. On September 24 this historic day will be celebrated and at the same time mark the kick-off for the next 275 years.
In 1956, a prototype of a new passenger car from Volvo was presented. The car became known as the Amazon in Sweden and the 121 and 122S on the export markets. The designation 122S was used for a version with a more powerful engine.
