And I suspect that Volvo were simply less restrictive with their franchise terms. IIRC Yanmar sold franchises by exclusive territory, and in order to ensure profitability they made the territories fairly large and exclusive. Which is why they'll slap dealers selling discount mail-order parts outside their assigned territories.

It is, after all, a business.
