The Volvo XC90 revived the brand name and this gives it the right to show the BMW X5 and Audi Q7 just how things are done.
Four years back Geely put a lot of money into the brand, $11 billion, but luckily it has paid off for them as some of the money went to the new engine plant and the rest on the SPA platform.
The Volvo XC90 is a superb vehicle, along with the S90, both of the vehicles have helped to increase sales for Volvo. In fact in the US the sales have increased by 259%.
The oldest vehicle in the line-up is going to be the Volvo XC90 in four years and Volvo are hoping to produce around 100,000 vehicles per year. The company has also partnered with Uber and they are into autonomous driving.
The vehicle of choice for autonomous driving is the Volvo XC90 and they wish to be able to sell about 800,000 vehicles each year worldwide. Sales have doubled up to now at 425,000 and Volvo still think that the target can be achieved.
