Volvo has said that it is looking at local assembly for models in its India range. The Swedish automaker began assembly of the XC90 in October and had hinted at more models joining the ranks of their flagship on the assembly line.

Given that local assembly has been adopted by its rivals and has been quite successful for them for more than 10 years now, it only seems logical for Volvo to GO down this road. The automaker has said that the cars under consideration are the SPA underpinned models. This list includes the S90, XC60 and a little more unconventionally, the V90 Cross Country. The former two were expected, while the plan for the V90 Cross Country comes as a bit of surprise when you consider that it is a niche product.

The company has also hinted that it will bring only electrified vehicles to the Indian market starting 2019. The list will include all forms of hybrids as well as pure electric vehicles, although in what order these will show up is yet to be ascertained.
