My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES JANUARY - VOLVO - After a huge 2016, 2017 has started negatively.
Volvo Car USA, LLC, (VCUSA) reported U.S. sales of 3,472 vehicles for the month of January, an 18.2 percent decrease.
“Strong global demand will impact availability of XC90 throughout Q1,” said Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “We are increasing XC90 production capacity which will result in progressively greater availability for the duration of the year.”
Total sales excluding XC90 were up 2.5 percent year-over-year, with S60 sales up 30.8 percent.
Volvo is implementing a sweeping $11 billion transformation plan that has involved the development of its own modular vehicle architecture, a new engine range, global manufacturing capability, a completely renewed product range and world leading developments in safety, autonomous driving and connectivity.
