The Volvo XC Classic will be manufactured in a new Geely-funded factory in Daqing in Heilongjiang Province. The XC Classic will be offered as a budget-large SUV. The 2015 Volvo XC90 will be imported into China starting early next year, meaning China will have two XC90’s at the same time.

An there will be even more! Geely will use the XC Classic platform for an SUV of its own, which is expected to launch late next year.
