The Swedish auto manufacturer will start locally assemble the car at its Bengaluru plant in the second quarter of current financial year, expectedly by the end of September this year.

Volvo currently assembles the XC90 SUV and S90 sedan in India and the brand is aiming to increase the localized production of its models here to achieve competitive pricing. Local assembling of the Volvo XC60 is a vital part of that strategy. As the automaker claims, it sells the CBU products with aggressive pricing compared to their competitors. Importing the CKD models and locally assembling them will further help the brand.

Speaking about the Volvo XC60 SUV, it is inspired by the styling of the bigger sibling XC90. The SUV comes featuring a muscular design that grabs attention very easily. It has won the ‘2018 World Car of the Year Award’. Apart from a styling exterior design, it also comes equipped with loads of high-end technologies and advanced features along with the top-notch safety features.

Priced at Rs 57.90 lakh (ex-showroom), the Volvo XC60 gets power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that is capable of churning out 232 bhp of peak power and 480 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duty is done by an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all the four wheels.
