That will make it convenient for the customer,\u201d the MD said. Frump said that FY18 had been a tough year for the luxury automotive market. \u201cBut we launched new cars XC60, XC40, and it\u2019s important to launch products and have effective dealerships,\u201d he said.

In all, Volvo cars has 25 showrooms across India including those in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Delhi and Lucknow.
