Is this true? If it is, the 2.5T AWD is looking much better to me. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://www.imakenews.com/autospies/e_article000098580.cfm" TARGET="_blank">Volvo lowers prices on XC90 </A><BR><BR>

Demand has met the first year's production goal of 50,000 vehicles

Also, <A HREF="http://www.imakenews.com/autospies/e_article000098573.cfm" TARGET="_blank">Demand strong for Volvo XC90</A> indicates that all 50,000 units have been spoken for? Kinda contradictory to the other article. I mean, if demand was strong, why would Volvo lower MSRP?<p>In any case, I guess it's gonna be MY2004 for me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsad.gif" BORDER="0"><p><br>[Modified by crikey, 12:16 PM 10-4-2002]<BR><BR>

It is only a matter of time that every single unit will have a customer's name for it.<p>For example, I have an initial allocation of 34 XC90s (and it is supposed to go up to 42). Right now, I have close to 62 deposits of which I know that 54 of them are concrete. The other 8 are not sure if the will like the vehicle (yeah, right) and want to drive it before they make up their mind.<p>So, I have my own back log already and this is only for cars arriving by February! That means I already have 12 customers (at least, as we are selling a couple of XC90s every other day...) that will have to wait beyond February...it is gojng to be tough...<p>I wold like to see how much over MSRP they will charge in markets like New York City, Boston, etc....<p>Yannis

So Yannis, you can't confirm the lowering of MSRP for the 2.5T FWD (which should lower the MSRP for the 2.5T AWD since AWD is considered an option)? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

On top of that, XC90 FWD may or may not have their MSRP's lowered but not the AWD models; I realize that the AWD is an option but any price mods are not going to affect the starting price of the AWD models.<p>When "things" break loose I will post.<p>Sorry!<p>Yannis
