"Lightning McQueen must be found at all costs!"

Sven is a minor character in Cars.


"Sven didn't plan to go into politics. In fact, he started off as an automotive model. He was crowned "Mr. Automotive" a record seven times. This led to roles in films like "Roll over and Die," "Roll over and Die II" and "Welcome to the Auto-Bomb." He soon made the natural leap from acting to politics, winning elections and looking good while doing it."[1]

In the film, Sven makes a quick appearance during the montage of reports on Lightning McQueen's disappearance, stating how Lightning needs to be found at all costs.


  • His die-cast packaging refers to him as "Hummer Sven".
  • Sven is a major parody of actor and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • Sven is modeled as a 2004 Hummer Modified H1, another reference to Schwarzenegger, as he is known for owning the vehicle.
  • The California flag near him has a bear on it, that isn't car-ified.
  • His roof rails are also his hair.
