Last Volvo XC90 leaves the production line

The last first generation of the Volvo XC90 has been recently produced by the Swedish based automaker at the Torslanda plant.

Those of you who still love your Volvo XC90 should know that the model has just left the production line, at the Torslanda plant, in order to make room for its successor, the second generation. The final model is the 636,143 XC90 which has been produced in Sweden and it will be driven, later on today, to its new home, at the Volvo Museum.

“The last XC90 made in Gothenburg will be driven directly to the Volvo Museum, also located in Gothenburg. However, production of the current XC90 will continue in Volvo’s new car plant in Daqing later in the year, under the name of Volvo XC Classic, which will only be sold in China”, said the carmaker in its official press release.

The Volvo XC90 is am midsize luxury SUV which has been in production since 2002, after being officially unveiled, during the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit. The model is based on the P2 platform which is shared with the first-gen S80 and other large Volvo cars. The first-gen XC90 is coming with a choice of five engines and four transmissions. In 2007, the SUV has received a facelift and it was slightly updated in 2009, 2010 and 2012, only to leave the production line this year.
