Volvo Cars to assemble XC 90 plug-in hybrid in India from next year
New Delhi: Swedish automaker Volvo Cars aims to locally assemble plug-in hybrid variant of its premium SUV XC 90 in India from next year, a top company official said Thursday.
The company is also gearing up to drive in four additional plug-in hybrid models in the country over the next three years as part of its plans to build a portfolio of environment-friendly vehicles.
"We are going to be the first car company to assemble plug-in hybrid cars locally in India. The first model would be introduced in the last quarter of next year. The localisation of plug-in hybrids marks the future of electrification for us," Volvo Car India Managing Director Charles Frump said.
The company would be rolling out the locally-assembled XC 90 T8 plug-in hybrid from its Bengaluru facility.
