Volvo looks to joining its compatriots in Germany, South Korea, and Japan with building vehicles in North America. In a interview with Bloomberg, Volvo CEO Stefan Jacoby said they're looking for a partner to manufacture cars in North America.
"In the medium term, five to six years, we need to find a proper solution in North America. Building a plant ourselves is maybe more unlikely. I’m looking for a partner that could help us utilize a North American plant,"
As to who, Jacoby said they are open to all manufacturers, even Fiat.
"Fiat is obviously one of the alternatives. If you speak to Marchionne, just tell him to call me" Jacoby said.
