AutomotiveNews of Europe has confirmed that Volvo’s first car jointly developed with their new parental partner, China’s Geely Automobile Holdings, is still due in 2015 as the brand continues to keep up with the relentless competition.
Although this specific report didn’t specify which Volvo that is, our rumormill has indicated that the XC90 replacement will be the first co-developed Geely Volvo that will see the light of day.
The new XC90 is due on Volvo and Geely’s latest SPA modular architecture that will also be used to underpin a variety of other Volvos. But all of the Volvos are being developed in-house on Swedish soil, though production may take place at Volvo and Geely’s latest plant in China.
