Current Volvo XC90 Will Continue Production In China After The Launch Of New Swedish SUV
|   Saturday, April 12, 2014
After Volvo will launch this fall a new generation of its traditional SUV, the XC90, the current model will continue to be produced in a factory which the company that bought Volvo in 2010, Geely, has specially built in Daqing city, located in northeastern China.

According to information provided by the publication Chinacarnews, cited by Just-Auto, Volvo will sell in China both the new XC90 and the old version, the latter being present as an accessible alternative to the new generation.


The factory from China will be the only one in the world that will still produce the old XC90. Thus, the first units will be out the doors of the Daqing plant in December this year. The model will have one engine, namely the 2.5-liter unit.

The new generation of the XC90 will be launched in its turn on the largest market in the world in spring, next year.
According to Chinese media, the old XC90 platform will be used by Geely for construction of a proper SUV, which is expected to launch in its domestic market in 2015.
Sources said the central government of China has given the green light for Geely and Volvo to begin planned production at three plants. Volvo and Geely initially announced in 2011 their plans to produce vehicles and engines in China.

They said the vehicle assembly plants in Chengdu and Daqing received formal approval in October and February, respectively. The engine plant, which will have capacity to produce 300,000 engines a year, in Zhangjiakou city near Beijing, received the green light from the Chinese government in February.
