With an expanding dealer network and an exciting range of car launches planned ahead in the year, we have a very promising year to look forward to."
Following Kohonen’s footsteps, Bonsdorff stated, "Thanks to the great performance of SRK Cars, Volvo Cars' share of the luxury car market in Andhra Pradesh is among the highest in India. Opening a new dealership at Vijayawada is an obvious step towards amplifying our position further in the state. The city, also known as the 'Business Capital of Andhra Pradesh' is one of the major trading and business centers of Andhra Pradesh. With the launch of Vijayawada dealership, Volvo Cars is happy to be strongly present at two major cities in the state, with the other being Visakhapatnam.”
