The Volvo S60L will be stretched by about 12 centimeters in the middle for more space for passengers in the back. The Volvo S60L will compete head to head with the Audi A4L and the BMW 3Li, bot locally made and stretched as well. The standard Volvo S60 is currently imported into China, price starts at 280.000 yuan, the China-made S60L will start around 220.000 yuan. Engines: 2.0 Turbo and 3.0 Turbo.

The second car to be produced in Chengdu is the Volvo XC60 SUV, and earlier on we heard Geely and Volvo have plans for making a new ‘small sedan’. The Chang’an-Volvo joint venture, dating back from Volvo’s Ford-days, still makes the Volvo S80L and S40 for the Chinese market. Production there will stop when the vehicles have reached the end of their life cycle, likely in two to four years.
