Volvo is expecting big things from its small new car, the EX30. So much so it will now build its new electric SUV in two factories to meet expected strong demand.
The Swedish brand started to build cars in Zhangjiakou, China, earlier this year, with the first customer cars built here expected to be delivered by the end of this year. It's here where the EX30 is currently being built.
However, Volvo will boost production capacity of its brand new electric SUV because it expects it to be a strong seller in Europe. Consequently a second production line will go live, with this one being in Volvo's Belgium factory in Ghent, joining lines already building XC40s and the all-electric C40 coupe SUV.
