We had mentioned earlier that Volvo wasn’t participating in this year’s Auto Expo. However, that was just the Volvo cars which are not going to be there. Instead, the company is set to launch one of the most powerful and technologically advanced truck in India!- The Volvo FH 520 6×4 Powertronic Tractor.
This will take place on January 6th, 2010 at 11:30 am and Mr. Somnath Bhattacharjee, President, Volvo Trucks India will be there at the occassion.
Volvo aren’t participating in this year’s Auto Expo. However, we are expecting the company to enrich its current product portfolio for India by introducing four of models in the country in the coming months of 2010. The Scandinavian manufacturer will be launching the latest variant of its luxury sedan S80 which is powered by a twin turbo, Euro V compliant diesel engine. The premium utility vehicle XC60, the revised version of the Volvo XC90 and the new Volvo S60 are the other models which are likely to be launched in the country in early 2010.
