STOCKHOLM -- Ford Motor Co.'s Volvo Car Corp. said on Wednesday it would begin selling cars in India during the fourth quarter of this year.
The company said it would introduce its S80 and XC90 models, and planned to begin selling more models in the Indian market "in due course."
"India is experiencing very favorable economic growth with low inflation and a stable currency," the company noted in a statement. "Total new car sales on the Indian market are expected to increase from 1 million cars per year to 1.6 million over the next few years. This gives us an excellent foundation for starting sales of Volvo cars on this market."
The carmaker, which said in March it would begin making cars in China this year, would establish three dealerships in India in 2006, it added.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
