Volvo’s future under Geely is getting more and more clear and things are looking good. For the brand that is, not so much for the development center back in old Sweden. Geely has established a brand-new Volvo development center in Shanghai which will develop two new Volvo’s: a small car and a mid-sized car.
These two cars will be made in China as well, it is not sure yet whether they will be exported. Development of the Volvo C30, which is just a concept now, will also go to Shanghai. Construction of the new factory in Chengdu will start soon, first cars that will be made there are the S60 sedan and XC60 SUV.
