Volvo has written company history. The Swedish carmaker has brought out its most powerful, series-production station wagon ever. The V60 Polestar is certainly speedy, but does it live up to expectations?
Chinese billionaire Li Shufu first made global headlines when he bought carmaker Volvo in 2010. Now, he's acquired a sizable stake in German automaker Daimler, making him one of the industry's most influential players.
The Swedish carmaker says it is ready to phase out the internal combustion engine and produce greener vehicles. The firm will manufacture only fully electric and hybrid models within two years.
Sweden has reported a decent rise in car sales over the past 12 months. But for the first time in more than half a century, the best-selling vehicle in the Scandinavian country was not its iconic Volvo, but VW's Golf.
Chinese automaker Geely is launching a new car brand, 'Lynk & Co.' To signal its global ambition, Geely chose Berlin as the city in which to unveil the first Lynk-branded automobile: an SUV hybrid named 'Lynk 01.'
