Elaborating on my earlier comment regarding Volvo's "ties to China might well be a plus in that department [access to chips] " there are some interesting comments about China as a chip manufacturer contained in the following linked article that focuses on the global access to chips.Perhaps someone with technical knowledge could elaborate as to whether the upgrades actually require any more chips than would have otherwise been incorporated absent the upgrades. That said the chip manufacturers have certainly had enough time now to respond to the issues that initiated the shortage many months ago and presumably alternative sources may well now be more readily available to Volvo. Volvo's ties to China might well be a plus in that department as well as I know when I most recently visited Shanghai there was a big push to increase China's presence in
technology related manufacturing areas that presumably would include chips.
