Moving to Germany? Finding a car often is one of the top priorities for expatiates when they plan or begin their posting.

A.V.U.S.-Automobile was founded in 1979 by Luigi Pelosi in Hanau, Germany – one of the largest U.S. military garrisons in Europe at that time. We have been an authorized factory agent for Volvo Diplomat, Military and Expat sales until the program was restructured in 2019 and the responsibility for the program was delegated to the Volvo’s national sales companies.
After 40 years of impeccable service to its clients, A.V.U.S.-Automobile now sells premium European cars in cooperation with the local official Volvo Car Germany dealerships. We exclusively manage the diplomat / military program for Auto Amthauer in Hanau (Frankfurt Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region) as well as Autohaus Geisser in Heidelberg / Mannheim (Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region) and Karlsruhe.
Enjoy special offers for servicemembers or civilian employees of NATO member countries’ armed forces, staff of diplomatic missions (embassies / consulates) as well as employees of EU institutions (ECB, ESA, EIOPA, etc.) and other intergovernmental organizations
