Geely has signed a purchase agreement to purchase Volvo Cars from Ford Motor Company. The press release from VCNA says they plan to keep Volvo and Geely as two separate companies. They will also keep Volvo in Sweden. The deal will be completed during the third quarter of this year.
The other news is that Volvo will reveal the new S60 at the New York Auto Show. It was recently displayed on the Regis & Kelly Show. They only spent a few minutes on the car, but you could definitely see the similarities between it and the new front end of the 2011 C30 and C70. They also mentioned that it has a pedestrian detection device which will brake for people like City Safety does in the XC60.
We’ve been taking in quite a few SAABs recently on trade. And they are selling also. One of our salesmen is currently delivering a 2004 SAAB 9-3 2.0t as we speak. But we have five others available including a convertible and an SUV. Take a look at our website for a complete listing.
We’re trying to use our own real estate to advertise our website. By this time next month you should see our domain name posted in several prominent locations at the dealership. And why not? If our own customers don’t know we have a website, who will?
