Geely & Volvo chairman Li Shufu has told Chinese media that Volvo will develop a new S100 flagship to compete with the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The S100 will be based on a stretched variant of the platform of the next generation Volvo S80. It will be made in China in the new Volvo-factory in Chengdu, whether it will be exported to other countries is yet undecided.
