If you're a tourist, a diplomat, or in the military, you can have your new Volvo delivered to any one of 13 European destinations, drive it during your stay there, and then have it delivered to your home in the U.S. after you return. If you're an expatriate, you can only purchase a U.S. specification Volvo for direct shipment to the U.S.

Another great advantage of the Volvo Overseas Delivery offer is the possibility to fully customize your car*.  This means that colors, wheels, interiors, inlays, etc. previously only available in Europe are now also available on your custom ordered Volvo Overseas Delivery car. Select one of the links in the left navigation for more information.
