The company will start assembling cars indigenous under the Make in India program of the Government of India. Currently, the company assembles some of its models in India, while most models have a fully finished unit imported.

Most of Volvo's cars are imported by the company as semi-manufactured models, assembled at the Hoskote plant in Bangalore. The company imports fully finished models of the remaining cars. The company has to pay 60-100 per cent import duty on these cars. At the same time, only 15-20 per cent import duty has to be paid on semi-manufactured cars.

Volvo tends to be expensive in India due to import duty. Volvo has had the lowest sales of cars in the last month due to the Covid-19 epidemic. The company has been expecting sales to return to normal in the coming months.

Let us know that Volvo has also revealed the XC40 based electric car. In 2018, the company said that in the next 3-4 years, the company can launch 4 new electric cars in the Indian market.

The company aims to gradually change its dependence on fuel vehicles and concentrate on electric cars in it's commitment to keeping the environment clean and an electrified future. Volvo claims electric cars can only be used in the future, so a commercial look will have to offer from now on.

The company will discontinue fuel-powered models in the future. In some cars launched in 2019, Volvo used hybrid-electric motors and has since focused steadily on the production of full-electric cars.
