In any event the majority for parts are not actually made in the UK? Even if they are made from British steel exported to other countries.

Hi , it's not that long ago Volvo had a purchasing department in Birmingham so it could be argued that Volvo where British cars but assembled in Holland.

Found online:

"Volvo Cars is a multinational company with plants located in China, Sweden, and the U.S.A. For most global markets, all Volvo cars are produced and assembled in Sweden."

Hi , my Volvo 740 GLE was built in Holland.

My Volvo V90 was built in Sweden.

Do you know if British steel was used for either?
Hi , yes the 740GLE was built using British Steel and the majority of the body pressing were fabricated in the UK.

Not so sure about the V90
