Volvo Cars of North America President and CEO Lex Kerssemakers, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and other key public officials officially broke ground on Volvo Cars' first American factory in Berkeley County, South Carolina, with construction beginning on the factory site, capable of producing up to 100,000 cars per year.

The South Carolina factory will be the global production home of the all new S60 Sedan, which is currently under development at Volvo Car Group headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first South Carolina-built Volvos are expected to roll off the assembly line in late 2018. Volvo Cars estimates that the factory will employ up to 2,000 people over the next decade and up to 4,000 people in the longer term.

"Today's groundbreaking proves that Volvo Cars follows promises with action. Volvo is moving quickly to expand its presence in the United States with new cars, new engines and now, a new factory," said Lex Kerssemakers.
