    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.

    Maybe GM could lease them some manufacturing space since they have so much unused plant space sitting around.

    Course be funny if your Buick and Volvo came off the same assembly line! :P

    Course this could be truer than any of us imagine! :D

    Maybe Ford given their history...Volvo seems like it would be a more viable upmarket brand for Ford than dead-brand-walking Lincoln.

    That is soooooo true and I am sure their Union workers would love to have Volvo as an additional brand to build. :)

    Volvo has really managed to transform their line up lately, but it seems few have noticed.

    They seem a bit invisible in the market...but they do have some interesting models, I guess they are sort of an Acura and Buick competitor line these days..
