Has Volvo tied up with anyone for their passenger car manufacturing/sales? I don't think they will do too well here, especially with MB, BMW, and Audi already in the fray.

Volvo is owned by Ford so they do have a ready made partner if they need to start selling, Though i highly doubt that Volvo would want to share showroom sapace with Ikons and fiestas.

Dont know about the manufacturing/assembling part but as far as sales volvo india will do it alone,they are in the process of establishing their own dealerships is what i last heard about them and the cars[Volvo S80 and the Volvo XC90 ] should be here by the last quarter of 2007.
