All good things must come to an end. After producing 636,143 XC90s for twelve years, Volvo will end the production of the current generation XC90 to make room for the next generation XC90.
The last XC90 made at their Torslanda plant will be driven to its new home at the Volvo Museum, located in Gothenburg. However, production of the current XC90 will continue in Volvo’s new car plant in Daqing later in the year, under the name of Volvo XC Classic, which will only be sold exclusively in China.
The all-new Volvo XC90 will also be produced in the Torslanda factory. The SUV is slated to debut in August, will start production at the end of January 2015.
According to Volvo Senior Vice President Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management, Lex Kerssemakers, “Our all-new XC90 is not just a natural development from an incredibly successful car, it is also an excellent example of the transformation underway at Volvo Cars, both within the company and from a brand perspective. We look forward to a new era of success.”
