Luxury carmaker Volvo Auto India has begun deliveries of the next generation S60 sedan and XC60 sports utility vehicle in Hyderabad in November. The Indian unit of the Sweden-based automobile giant hopes to bring down the waiting period for the V40 Cross Country car launched earlier this year as well. Tomas Ernberg, Managing Director, said: “Volvo is working on bringing down the delivery period for the V40 Cross Country, which has been a hit across the globe and in India since its launch. This new offering has become a segment leader in several markets and we hope it will be able to do so in India.” He also opened a new Volvo Retail Experience concept store in India. Volvo India was confident that it would be successful in increasing its market share in India. “We expect to touch a sales volume of about 20,000 cars by 2020 garnering a market share of about 15 per cent. We expect to cross the 1,000-car mark this year,” he said. The new generation cars, priced at INR 31 Lakh and 42.5 Lakh respectively, ex-showroom, are being offered with modern diesel engines.
