Charles said that he would like to thank the customers in Bengaluru and the city is an important market for Volvo and the success is a sign that the company has made a good choice to have the Volvo Cars assembly unit there. Volvo XC40 was launched in India at a competitive price of Rs 39.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Out of the three versions that are sold globally, India gets only one trim in the form of R-Design. The said variant gets multiple radar-based features like blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control, adaptive cruise control and more.
Furthermore, the SUV gets ABS with EBD, traction control, hill descent control and parking assist among other safety features. This makes the Volvo XC40 the only car in the segment to have radar-based safety features which in turn makes it the safest in front of its rivals like Audi Q3, BMW X1 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA. Volvo Cars have registered a sales growth of 33% during Jan-June 2018 compared to last year. The sales performance of 1242 units is spearheaded by the XC60 that contributed 25% of the total volume.
