Volvo starting production in China
So far, Chinese production will be limited to the S40, which will be built at Changan Ford's production plant in Chongqing. Volvo is targeting annual production of 10,000 units.
There appear to be no plans at present to manufacture higher-end Volvos in the Middle Kingdom. The company plans to launch its C70 convertible in China in 2007, followed by its all-new flagship S80 sedan.
