New Volvo XC90 gets over 16,000 pre-launch orders


Volvo Cars seem to be making all the right moves as the all-new Volvo XC90 is already proving to be a hit with strong demand even before its launch while Volvo XC60 became the best-selling premium mid-size SUV in Europe in 2014. The new XC90 has received over 16,000 orders already, while its production has started at the Torslanda plant in Sweden in the last week of January and deliveries to commence this spring. Built on Volvo's new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) technology and powered by Drive-E powertrain family, the XC90 also gets a host of new technologies in typical Volvo style.

"These strong order numbers are very encouraging and it shows that customers obviously like what they see in the new XC90," says Hakan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars. "The new XC90 represents the new Volvo Cars and it is the first in a series of new cars to come, as we renew our entire product portfolio in the coming years."
