Fort Washington, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2018 -- Volvo Cars is pleased to announce that the manufacturing and production of the brand new 2019 Volvo S60 has now started in Charleston, South Carolina.

The new plant opened on June 27th of this year with the intent of producing the new S60 for both domestic and foreign markets. Volvo has stated in the past that the plant is expected to generate approximately 4,000 new jobs in Charleston in the years to come.

Volvo plans for the 2019 S60 to make its appearance in American showrooms later in 2018. The production at the new factory kicks off the first time that the Swedish auto company has ever manufactured vehicles in the United States.

"We're proud to launch Volvo's first American-made car," says Jeff Moore, Vice President of Volvo Manufacturing in the Americas. "Our team is dedicated to delivering the exceptional craftsmanship, Scandinavian design, and dynamic feel that defines the Volvo brand."

The Volvo S60 won't be the only model the automaker plans on producing in Charleston, though. The next-generation XC90 SUV will also be manufactured at the new plant upon the car's planned arrival in 2021.

The 2019 S60 T5 will start at $36,795. For potential buyers who find the price to be too heavy of a commitment, there is also the Care by Volvo subscription service options, beginning at $775 a month.

Those on the lookout for a dealership in Pennsylvania to get a new Volvo are encouraged to get in touch with Volvo Cars of Fort Washington, the leading Volvo dealership in Montgomery County, by giving their sales team a call at 215-596-4721.
