Upon opening, the Berkeley County, SC, 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. American-built S60s will be exported around the world through the Port of Charleston, along with another model yet to be determined. The first South Carolina-built Volvos are expected to roll off the assembly line in late 2018.
Volvo Car USA estimates that the factory will employ up to 2000 people over the next decade and up to 4000 in the longer term. The plant would contribute approximately $4.8 billion in total economic output on an annual basis.
