Volvo XC90 Shows Audi Q7 And BMW X5 How To Do Things The Right Way

By  | 

The BMW X5 along with the Audi Q7 have been taking lessons from the Volvo XC90, a vehicle that is more than capable of giving lessons. This is due to the fact that Volvo had been able to revive the brand name virtually on its own.

Geely made a big investment four years ago and this was $11 billion. Some of the money has been used by Volvo to develop the new engine and some on the SPA platform. This has meant that the investment has been a wise one.

The Volvo XC90 and S90 sales have been increasing year on year, with sales of the XC90 having increased in the US by 259%.

At the moment the Volvo XC90 is 18 months old but in four years time it is going to be the old man among the line-up. The boss of Volvo spoke up recently and he said that by 2018 the plant in South Carolina should produce about 100,000 vehicles. He also talked about autonomous driving and the Uber partnership.

We have seen the autonomous version of the Volvo XC90 in Pittsburgh already in testing. Three years back Volvo announced that they wanted to be able to sell 800,000 vehicles around the world per year. Up to now they have sold 425,000 but they said that they are still on track.
