Volvo to export Chinese-built sedan to US this year
The elongated S60 might not be the only car to come this way from The People's Republic: Volvo is planning an S90 flagship that would be built on the SPA architecture at its Daqing factory, and the Reuters story says it might be exported here, too.
The final nugget is that Volvo is said to be considering a factory in the US. In 2012, former CEO Stefan Jacoby said the company would spend "two or three years" looking into a US or Mexico factory. Much has changed at the company since then, so it looks like the reset button got hit – Reuters characterizes it as Volvo "starting to weigh the possibility" of a plant – but with all of its competitors setting up shop in North America, we probably won't have to wait three years for another update.
