Volvo to Build Next Gen XC90, Add 1,900 Jobs at South Carolina Plant

In September, Volvo Cars reported that the company has decided to manufacture its next-generation XC90 SUV at the new plant in Berkeley County, South Carolina. This is the second vehicle to be assigned to the plant, with the move raising Volvo Cars' total investment in their U.S. manufacturing operations to more than $1.1 billion.

In a press release, Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive, pronounced, "The continued expansion of our plant in South Carolina is another significant commitment to the US market. The plant in Charleston will serve both the US and international markets and forms a strong foundation for our future growth in the U.S. and globally."
