Volvo Car Group starts series production of the Volvo S60L at Chengdu manufacturing plant

Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) officially started series production of the Volvo S60L at its manufacturing plant in Chengdu, China. The production start is another important milestone in Volvo Cars' transformation journey and the establishment of China
as the company's second home market.

The first car to roll-off the production line was a seashell-coloured Volvo S60L. The Volvo S60L is a long wheelbase version of the Volvo S60 specifically aimed at the Chinese market and will makes its official debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show on November 21.

The engine plant in Zhangjiakou has also become operational this autumn and delivers engines to the manufacturing plant in Chengdu. In total, Volvo Cars currently has over 2,000 employees in China, around half of which work at the Volvo Cars China headquarters in Shanghai.

"We are truly firing on all cylinders in China," said Lars Danielson, Senior Vice-President Volvo Cars China Operations. "The official start of series production in Chengdu is only the latest of many milestones we have achieved in recent years. Helped by our strong product portfolio, our highly competent organisation in China is determined to book many more successes in the future and the outlook for Volvo Cars in China is indeed very bright."
