Volvo Auto India has announced the opening of four new showrooms this month, in order to increase its foothold in the Indian premium car market. The showrooms will be opened in West Delhi, Surat, Chandigarh and Kolkata.
Volvo says that these new showrooms will be based on their traditional Scandinavian design that will sell their entire range of cars consisting of the V40 Cross Country, S60, S80, XC60 and the XC90. The West Delhi and Surat dealership are owned by the company’s existing dealers Swede Auto and Autobots respectively. The Chandigarh Dealership will be run by Krishna Group who are in automobile business since 1967. The Kolkata dealerships will be handled by OSL Scandinavian, part of the OSL Group.
"Taking our philosophy of 'designed around you' a step further, we are happy to bring the all new Volvo retail experience at four new locations. With the new dealers, Volvo Auto India is confident of expanding its market share and creating more patrons for its brand. We will continue to grow as we start sales with 15 functional dealerships across key cities, generating a strong brand eminence, " said Tomas Ernbery, managing director, Volvo Auto India.
Volvo India has updated the S60 and the XC60 months ago but we are still waiting to hear something on the S80 and the XC90 as they are due update. We hope they get updated ones soon this year.
