:happydance: I am totally smitten by the XC60. At some point in my life, with a reduced price, I maybe able to afford one. I just hope they don't dilute the quality of the product when it's built here.

The first locally built XC 90 rolls out of the assembly line.
Any updates on this?
People are talking about year end. If the first one is already out, will testing take that long?

Thanks

All our cars to have hybrid powertrain in India - MD - Volvo Auto India

Ready to begin local assembly by the end of the year, Volvo Auto India is not just looking at expanding its product portfolio but offering products which are at par with those in western countries looking to reduce carbon footprint
Differences between EU cars and VOLVO India cars :

We are basically selling the same cars across the globe and I think that is going to stay that way. So the same safety norms, environmental friendliness norms, design features remain constant everywhere - including India. Of course you have local demands on what people want to have in their cars - you don't need heated seats in south India whereas you need that in southern Europe. But when it comes to other features, we definitely want to bring everything.

If there is any price update, we would obviously pass on the benefit to our customers

Forget Tesla for now, Volvo EV's could launch in India earlier ,

Europe is not growing. China is our biggest market where we sold 1,00,000 cars in 2016. India is where China was in 2000. Nothing can stop the India market from growing

That's great news. If I am not mistaken, Volvo is owned by a Chinese investment firm now. Or perhaps it was Saab. If prices are competitive, I'd really look forward to acquiring a loaded V40 - such an ideal-sized car for urban India.

Volvo is owned by Geely, a Chinese car company.
