A spokesman for Volvo Cars has told just-auto that the firm’s contract with CFA – Changan Ford Automotive – has ended. Responding to a question regarding S80L production at CFA’s Chongqing plant, VCG’s man also confirmed that production of the extended wheelbase sedan ceased in late 2015.

In other news, there is also confirmation that Volvo ‘s Daqing plant will be the location for Chinese build of the S90. A long wheelbase ‘S90L’ derivative is yet to be announced but it seems likely that such a model is in the pipeline. The car might be revealed on 25 April, the first press day of the 2016 Beijing motor show.

As for the S80, it is still being built at Torslanda “but [production] will be phased over to the new S90 during the spring of this year”, Volvo ‘s spokesman added.
