Volvo to assemble XC40 and S60 in India-

Charles Frump, MD, Volvo India was also quoted saying-
Quote:
Those purchasing luxury cars were not concerned about fuel price rise, but were eager to utilise less polluting vehicles.
It should be noted that there has been no mention whether there would be any decrease in the prices of the cars after local assembly starts.
Also, no timeframe has been specified.

Any idea whether it would be possible to get a discount on such a newly released car?

I doubt it. But if you are picking up a Volvo Sedan go with the S90. Although it has been discontinued, dealers do have a couple in stock and discounts are aplenty on this one. You may even be able to pick an S90 much lower than an undiscounted S60. I was offered an S90 for 53 Lakhs in March (9% Road Tax in my state).

If you only want an S60 you may have to wait a bit for massive discounting

Hi Nidhikapoor. Keeping in mind the pandemic, lack of business and also the quarter end just around the corner, I'm sure you can squeeze out some marginal discounts

Since your location shows as Bangalore I can get you connected to my contact at the dealership here. Please drop me a PM.

Also as mentioned by Aaroah, it is worth considering the S90 too!

Regards

Ah this is super interesting. I had no idea the S90 had been discontinued in India. It's long been a car my parents have liked, so I might ask my parents if they'd be interested in having a word with the Volvo dealer in Kolkata. Was the S90 you were offered the on road price at 53L? If so that's fantastic value considering you're getting a car a segment higher.

Yes, the price was On-Road. I was actually evaluating the XC-90 but if I wanted the S90 I am sure, I would have gotten 3-4 Lakhs further down. My dealer at that time had 2/3 S90's in Stock and a few more incoming, the month being March and Lucknow not being friendly to sedans were all big contributors for that deal.

Thanks. Got a HUGE discount offer on the last S90 in BLR, but still a good 8 lakhs more than ths S60, on road, in BLR.

My apprehensions are multi fold

1. It really is BIG. Don't need that size.
2. LONG wheelbase, so much worse over speed breakers etc [ test drive showed this]
3. It has a diesel, which has been discontinued worldwide. Worried about spares after a while. I'm sure they will be available, but might take time to get locally.
4. Its a 2020 June car, so been sitting in the yard for a year. I came across a thread here with a similar situation about a guy who bought a previous year Volvo, and had isssues with the leather and the trims. Someone said that it might be due to the fact that the car was lying in a yard for a year.

Though, yes, the luxury level was unbelievable. Has a lot that the S60 should have had, like ventilated seats etc.

The s60 is 57 on road in BLR, and I was offered the s90 for 66 lakhs.

I find these absolutely worth 45L OTR for indian context. Still pretty far from pricing in US for better trying and engine. I wish they offered R-Design variant with all black suede + leather interiors (suede is very good for tropical climate as well as cold climate) with contrast stitching here. Red car with all black interiors, contrary stitching, different OEM wheels from R-Design trim would make this the perfect car. R-Design exterior parts are only few ( primarily limited to the front and steering and replacement is wood trim ) and can be easily sourced. Can learn to live without contrast stitching in the interior. Anyone buy one recently? How negotiable have these become?
