Volvo to Build its First Fully-Electric Car in China
Sorry, but why does this make Volvo suck from your point of view?
made in china is why.
And why is this posted in the "Tesla Motors" forum rather than in "Electric Vehicles"?
Why are you surprised that a Chinese company is building a EV in the largest market for EVs?
Volvo is owned by the Chinese car company Geely. It only makes sense.
And has been for 7 years, so this should not come as new news. As far as recent news stories about Volvo's electrification plans, I think this one is more significant:
Volvo credits Tesla for creating EV demand, says they will stop developing diesel engines to focus on EVs
Well, it wouldn't make much difference to you if it was made down the street from me here in Sweden.
And as many of the others stated, it's a Chinese owned company now, so it would only make sense to have manufacturing in China.
But I'm still hoping that we will also see some of the production here in Sweden when they will move more into EVs. It would tie in nice with the Northvolt (giga)factory they are planning here as well.
===>I would really, really like this thread's title to be changed. There is no cause for such crudity.<=====
It certainly does say something unpleasant about the original poster, however.
Please go over to the Volvo forum to tell them they suck. This place is reserved for telling Tesla they suck, or at least it seems so lately.
Not sure I understand, why is being manufactured in China a bad thing?
China may lead the electric car revolution
Yes, Free speech and all you know....
It isn't but American Ignorance is, and we can afford to be ignorant.
Or maybe OP is upset that China will get the Volvo EV before we do. Then yes that definitely sucks
Tesla talks very seriously about manufacturing cars in China. Will those suck too?
I think a Volvo EV manufactured in China makes good business sense. What they save in labor and energy costs may pay for the freight back to Europe and North America. The 20% Chinese import tariff they avoid may enable Volvo to sell a lot of cars in China, where EV use is encouraged by the government.
No, I don't know. Free speech doesn't apply here.
The First Amendment to the Constitution has no application here. This is not a government owned website. It's a private site that the public is invited to attend, subject to its own rules, and after that only subject to legislation that does not allow discrimination on the basis of race, religion, etc. But you can find a lot of sites on the internet who do that and the government does not intervene.
If the owners or moderators want to banish any or all posts that are critical to Tesla, or vice-versa, they can do it without explanation and without breaking any laws. In my view, they do a great job of moderating both extremes.
