Volvo Cars India has opened its new parts warehouse at Bhiwandi, close to Mumbai, Maharashtra. Volvo has tied up with DSV for the parts warehouse and this agreement is expected to expedite spare parts for Volvo cars. Volvo had recently started their assembly line in Bengaluru and the first product to roll out of it was the Volvo XC90. The company had said then that more products based on the SPA platform are expected to be assembled in India. Volvo currently has dealerships across 19 locations in India. The number is expected to increase significantly this year.
The introduction of the parts warehouse is expected to take off the load from dealer partners to stock parts in the service centre. Moreover, parts which may not be often required can also be stocked at the warehouse rather than occupy precious space at a workshop.
In the coming months, Volvo India will launch the new XC40 compact SUV. Prices are expected to start from Rs 35 lakh.
