Volvo XC90 is the 1st ‘Made in India’ Volvo Car
A moment of joy came alive for luxury car lovers of India when Swedish car manufacturer Volvo rolled out their first locally assembled XC90 near Bangalore. They entered more than a decade ago but took a lot more time than others to enter the localization route of car sales in India.
The diesel variant of XC90 will now be assembled in India while plug-in hybrid will stay a CBU. They will soon look out for local assembly option on their S90 sedan and all-new XC60. Volvo plans to double their market share by 2020 and this move is quite positive as a first step towards their goal.
“It’s a moment of great pride for all of us at Volvo Cars”, said Charles Frump, the newly appointed Managing Director for Volvo Auto India. “The roll-out of first locally assembled Volvo Car speaks volumes for the company’s commitment to grow further in India. The last three years have been good for us in India and we noticed a positive and encouraging growth in terms of increased segment share, world-class product and new dealer appointments.With global standards in quality, we are a formidable luxury car company in India and on-track to gain a bigger share of the segment.”
