Volvo Car Corporation will build the next generation of medium-size cars, the so-called P1 platform, in the company's factory in Ghent in Belgium. One implication of this decision is that the Volvo Cars Torslanda plant in Göteborg will become the main factory for the company's larger cars, those built on the P2 platform. Production capacity at Volvo Cars Ghent will be doubled from 160,000 to 325,000 cars annually, while Volvo Cars Torslanda will increase its production capacity from 170,000 to 230,000 cars a year. "We can now concentrate our volume production to two factories, which gives us economy of scale advantages and the possibility to effectively rationalising our activities further," says Curt Germundsson, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing.
