      Thanks for linking to the photos as well.

      First pic of an American destined one with the yellow side markings in the headlight:



      So great to see video and pics of the first ones rolling off the line. I hope we get more stuff like this, especially as the First Editions begin production.

      Yep...did that during OSD. Amazing to see the robots. I remember two that each grabbed a single bolt and installed the hood hinges.

      Brings back fond memories of my factory visit back in 2003. I think I recall taking unsanctioned photos in one of the areas in the video...
      2004 XC90 2.5T AWD - BSR ECU upgrade, ViVA strut bar conversion, IPD control arms/sway bars/end links/subframe bushing inserts, OE 336mm front rotors, Nokian WRG4 SUV. 200k miles and counting
      2011 Sienna AWD - Wife + 3 kids (incl. twins). 140k miles and counting (down)
      XC Coupe PHEV - Waiting patiently (and expecting a very long wait)

      No problem, I've probably watched the video 5 or 6 times now as I'm so eagerly awaiting my vehicles build/delivery! lol I like that Volvo puts out things like this, I just want MORE of it.

      I ordered a Special Edition back in September. Does anyone have any idea when production of the Special Editions kick off? How long after that does it take to get from Sweden to USA on the ship?

      As far as I know, First Editions (First Edition not Special Edition is how I know it to be called) begin production week 5 2015. So, around January 28th, with deliveries said to begin late March/early April.

      I've got a First Edition reservation as well and hope they put out some neat pics and videos during their production. Keeping us in the loop as our vehicles make their journeys over here would be a great thing for Volvo to do. May wanna ask to have your username changed too

      I see they've switched from the Pirelli Scorpion Zeros to the Scorpion Verde All-Season. I just fitted these tires to my XC90 and i LOVE them. I haven't had them long enough to make a full review, but they're just as good as, if not better, than the Michelin Latitude Tour HP tires which I had the last time around -- and the Pirellis are a lot less expensive.

      I would be great if they used nokian tires as their factory supplier. Best tires in the world and made in Finland (so close to Sweden)

      I am not sure of the best tire (definitely very good tires that cost more in US with limited retail support) but a nice touch to keep the 100% made in Scandinavia title.
