The new Charleston, South Carolina plant, which opened June 20, is the company’s first American manufacturing facility; it reinforces Volvo Cars’ commitment to the U.S., an important market for the company and the new S60, the first Volvo car made in the United States and the first Volvo car to be sold without a diesel engine.

"The new S60 is one of the most exciting Volvo cars we’ve ever made,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. “It is a true driver’s car that gives us a strong position in the U.S. and China sedan markets, creating more growth opportunities for Volvo Cars.” Sticker price starts at $35,800.

Volvo began importing cars to the U.S. in 1955. Sixty-three years later the company has opened its first American factory in South Carolina - producing, selling and exporting a sport sedan for a new generation of car buyers.
