The S90 L is manufactured in the city of Daqing in northeastern China. It will launch on the Chinese car market this month. Export to the United States and Europe will start in the second half of 2017.
Wheelbase of the S90 L has been extended with 12 centimeters compared to the standard S90. All the extra space goes to the passengers in the rear. In China the S90 L competes with other locally made long-wheelbase cars such as the Audi A6L, the BMW 5Li, the Jaguar XFL, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class L.

The new Volvo S90 Long-wheelbase has debuted in China, it will be launched on the Chinese auto market on December 15. Public debut is scheduled for 19 November on the Guangzhou Auto Show. First a bit fuss about the name: it is not called the S90L, like the S80L, or the S60L, or the Audi A6L, or Mecedes C-Class L, or Jaguar XF-L, or you name it L. Instead, it is called S90 Long-wheelbase (S90 长轴距). On earlier py shots we clearly saw a S90L badge, but the L has been dropped.

Geely launched Lynk & Co in Sweden last night and we have the first photos of their first SUV; imaginatively called the 01, and formerly known by its code name CX11. The Link & Co 01 has become a very good looking car. The lights, hood, and grille give it a very sporty stance. And there was more: they also had a racy four-door sedan concept car on display.
New Spy Shots of the upcoming Lynk & Co SUV, code named the C11. Lynk & Co, not to be confused with Lincoln, is a new brand under Geely Auto. It will be positioned between Geely and Volvo.

Geely has killed the panda. The poor old cat will be succeeded by the Emgrand Mini, basically a heavily facelifted Panda, with a new front and rear. The Emgrand Mini, and what a wuzzy name that is, will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in November and launch on the Chinese car market in H1 2017.
