  •  Ford owns Volvo cars, but (0+ / 0-)

    the trucks are designed in a French plant -- somewhere along the line, they were spun off, if you can spin off something as large as the tractor of an 18-wheel rig.

    It's some kind of joint venture between Volvo and Renault, or maybe R owns V, not entirely sure. Operations in France and Sweden.

    And come to think of it, Ford may very well have sold or be trying to sell the V cars by now. Hard to keep up with the changing fortunes of Detroit.
