The XC60 is currently imported with price ranging from 400.000 to 650.000 yuan. The locally made version will be about 25% cheaper. Power will come from the 2.0 turbo T5 four-cylinder with 245hp and 350nm, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The Chinese XC60 has the same size as the European XC60, but Geely is considering a stretched variant especially for the Chinese market. The next Volvo SUV to be made in China is the current Volvo XC90 followed by a compact SUV based on the Volvo V40.

Good for cold testing.
Not so good for logistics, since it’s like an import from the hinterland.
