Production is starting next week, week 5 as planned.Not sure but HOPEFULLY we begin to hear more real soon. Supposedly from what I heard and read, official production of the new XC90 was supposed to begin today or tomorrow. If true, maybe we will get some kind of press release thing or pics put out by Volvo, or at least some kind of confirmation from them.
Glad to hear it. Do you know what they talked about V90 in this magazine, since you probably can read it?Production is starting next week, week 5 as planned.
They were talking about future models, new safety technology and design. Nothing special to be honest, but a good read anyway. Mostly speculations .Glad to hear it. Do you know what they talked about V90 in this magazine, since you probably can read it?
Maybe give them until the end of the week?This is week 5 and I'm kind of shocked nothing has been released by Volvo saying, in a sense, woo-hoo official production of the all new XC90 has begun, and then show a pic of the first one beginning it's 'birth'.
Yeah, I hear ya', but seeing as how they had the video from early December (the 11th) showing pre production vehicles being built I figured all of that would have been worked out and they would be raring to go with regular production.Maybe give them until the end of the week?
Production starting this week doesn't necessarily mean Monday...
And if I remember right I read somewhere that current best practice for car assembly is to stop the line to fix line problems rather than fix vehicle problems later. As the car and line are new perhaps we should expect slower production ramp-up in the beginning as line teething problems are ironed out?
"Today the first production Volvo XC90 of the new model rolls from the production line in Torslanda factory in Gothenburg"

So first delivery will start soon
I only know that there are 700 cars produced at the Torslanda factory every day, that's is all models combined (XC90, XC70, V70, V60, S60 and S80)Is it now possible to count how many rolls out every week? Or everyday?
At least when 1927 first editions are finished they should make an announcement. I hope.
