  • Motor Authority builds a 2019 Volvo S60

    Owen Kowalski motions me over toward some fragile-looking glass while he explains how I can get through the next half-hour without breaking things and making his day go sour. His red beard gets wide with a smile, and he looks relieved when he hears I’ve done a little of this before. It’s Owen’s first car assembly gig. In his before life, he made pizzas: First the crust, then the sauce, then the cheese, then the toppings. He got his job building Volvo S60 sedans at the company’s new factory in South Carolina by explaining the assembly process and quality control of...

  • 2018 Volvo XC90 rolls off the assembly line in Torslanda, Sweden

    Every new car Volvo builds at its various assembly plants has driven over a patch of bumpy road reminiscent of a small Scandinavian town, long before the car lands on a dealer lot—and that's something that won't change when the automaker begins building its redesigned S60 in South Carolina soon. Volvo will begin building the next-generation S60 in Charleston, South Carolina later this year, and the first time the cars are driven under their own power will be over rocks.

  • 2017 Volvo S60

    Volvo has only just broken ground on its first-ever U.S. assembly plant, but we already know what vehicle will first roll out into the southern breeze of Ridgeville, South Carolina when the plant becomes operational in 2018. The next-generation S60 sedan has been selected as the first vehicle to be produced at the upcoming factory.
