It all began in 2017 when volvo decided to spice things up in Bangalore by assembling our first-ever car, the ever-popular XC90. Little did we know, it was just the beginning of their Make-In-India road trip! Fast forward to today, and today Volvo India has produced more XC60s than coffee cups at a writer's desk (4000+ to be exact). But hold your seatbelts, folks, because the ten thousandth car is a true electric gem – the XC40 Recharge. Electric vibes, anyone?
Volvo's manufacturing facility in Hoskote near Bengaluru is not your average assembly line. It's where cars get their final touches and a good dose of luxury. Since 2007 Volvo has worked intensively to market the Swedish brand in the country. Volvo Cars currently markets products through 25 dealerships. Although there is stepp competition in the luxury space by other German brands, it is in the elctric segment that Volvo outshines a few. Moving with the times?
