Volvo has begun production of the all-new XC60 at its production plant in Torslanda, Sweden. The first customer car rolled off the production line just before lunch time.
The company's first customer-bound unit is a T5 Inscription AWD, finished in Crystal White.
Since the introduction of the original Volvo XC60 nine years ago, it has became Volvo's best selling model, almost a million units sold worldwide. That figure is 30% of Volvo's global sales.
Magnus Nilsson, vice president of the Torslanda plant said, “This is a proud day for everyone at the plant. We have worked hard in recent weeks and months to prepare Torslanda for this latest new Volvo model, and now we are ready to start delivering new XC60s to customers.”
Underneath the second-generation Volvo XC60 is the company's SPA platform. The new XC60 is the fourth model in Volvo's line up to utilize the new platform, which was first introduced on the Volvo XC90.
