His appointment comes off the back of a long and distinguished career within Volvo Cars since joining the company in 1996.

“There has never been a more exciting time to work in automotive research and development and there has never been a more exciting time to do so at Volvo. The industry is changing and I intend to make sure that Volvo leads that change,” said Green.
