Dude, India! You're Getting an XC90!

Volvo will begin selling cars in India this fall, to the delight of the small percentage of Indians that can actually afford one. Volvo Car India will sell the S80 and the XC90 with three engines: the 4.4 liter V8, 3.2 liter inline six and the 2.4 liter turbo inline five. If you're in New Delhi, Mumbai or Chandigarh, you'll be able to walk into a dealership and drive out in style (sort of). According to news reports, the Indian Volvo HQ was opened "in line with the Indian tradition..." headed by the Minister of Transport, the Ambassador of Sweden and the Swedish Trade Commissioner. We hope that means the Swedish Trade Commissioner has to show up for an event to be considered in line with the Indian tradition. [Al Bawaba]
