Volvo Cars of North America President and CEO Lex Kerssemakers, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and other key public officials officially broke ground on Volvo Cars’ first American factory in Berkeley County, South Carolina. Construction has now begun on the factory site, which will be capable of producing up to 100,000 cars per year.
Volvo Cars will be one of ten automakers voluntarily agreeing to make Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking standard on all vehicles within five years. Volvo introduced low speed Automatic Emergency Braking as standard in the 2009 introduction of the XC60 and the technology became standard in all Volvos by 2014.
