      2018 S90 OSD is real and prices are live

      While checking on OSD today, I noticed that Volvo has updated the OSD to reflect 2018 models available. Included are the S90 and V90. This is incredible!

      S90's ordered through the Overseas Delivery program will be direct shipped to the selling retailer from China. Customers can choose to use a Volvo in Europe for UP TO 7 DAYS or receive extra complimentary nights. ALL S90's are now produced in China.

      T Schroeder Jr, Since a person is not picking up their new Volvo at Gothenburg, is there a limit on when the travel to Europe is taken? I want to order mine sooner rather than later, but not travel to Sweden until July 2018. Is that possible? I'm told that the previous rule was a person would need to travel within 6 months of the deposit date. Not sure if this is a dealer-decided decision, but I was told the $2K deposit has gone to $4K. (no biggie).

      Kinda takes the magic out of the OSD experience of taking delivery of your new car at the factory in Sweden. I trust the buyer still gets the free Swedish meatball lunch plate by way of compensation. IAE, VCC still gets to pocket the profit on the sale to which the dealer would otherwise be entitled...

      Not sure I understand. The retailer still handles the transaction, whether the car is directly shipped or the customer picks up the car from Europe...

      I was wondering if they will still include a factory tour.

      Does anyone have questions about the quality of the 1st China-built S90s coming off the line? I am torn between wanting to get it right away, but also don't want to be part of the initial learning curve either. I mean, I know that almost the entire car will have no changes from 2017, but the factory workers would be new to assembling this. In fact, I suspect the entire factory has not produced anything before the 2018 S90..... so, helpful hints are greatly appreciated!!

      There shouldn't be a learning curve, and quality control on the opening of the factory for the S60L was pretty good. It is a small additional risk, but I'd take it if I was in your position and anxious to get the car. You're unlikely the be disappointed.

      Are the new XC90's being made in India for the US market? Or for India exclusively?

      The article I read is for Indian consumption only.

      Thanks. That does lessen my concerns. You can even go when the plant is shut down and they offer the Brand Experience Tour. That time of year (July-August) would seem more ideal for me. I admit to not knowing how to drive in snow or ice. There just isn't enough of it (or any of it) where I live, which is on the coast, about 1/2 between San Jose and LA.

      Yes, there will be provided you do not go when the factory is closed for the annual maintenance/summer vacation shut down. During that time, the factory tour is substituted w/ the Brand Experience Center tour (which is also amazing).

      Factories go in production mode several months before "job 1"; that period is used to make sure all machines are full calibrated to the types of cars being produced, solve any production line issues that may arise, ensure smooth flow of parts/supplies to the line, etc. It is a very well orchestrated environment.

      Thank you so much. Since joining this web site, I have enjoyed your posts. I come from vwvortex web site, which is a real boon to Phaeton owners like myself. Even better for those that choose to work on them themselves (not me). I can't wait to write my post about ordering, about delivery, and about my OSD experience, which will truly prove I belong to this great site.
