Executive Summary—Key Findings
Volvo Car Corporation: Key Findings, Global, 2015
Vision 2020 of Volvo Car Corporation (Volvo) is expected to double the company's vehicle sales to 800,000 units, while increasing profitability:
Volvo is expected to capitalise on its attributes of being a strong and well-established company to have the best premium brand perception and the best profit margin in the industry.
- China is Volvo's biggest market; the country's slowdown is expected to have a negative impact on the company. Volvo is expected to look at smaller, high-growth markets to offset this impact.
- The USA is seen as a strategic market for Volvo, as it opens a manufacturing unit in South Carolina—with an investment of $ million (M)—and targets sales of units by 2017.
Volvo Targets Digital Retailing and Marketing Strategies to Penetrate Key Markets:
Volvo is expected to support its existing dealers globally with its online marketing channels and eCommerce routes by establishing digital dealerships.
- The company is highlighting its Scandinavian roots in all communications and customer touch points, such as showrooms and service lounges, to elevate its brand identity in existing and new markets.
Volvo Will Act as a Testbed for Geely Automotive, its Parent Company, to Market Jointly Developed Technologies and Products:
The success of Geely's plans to expand its global footprint depends on how well the company can leverage Volvo's global brand presence and technology.
- Geely's entry into North America and Europe is expected by 2018, on the back of new models built on the shared platform architecture (SPA) and compact modular architecture (CMA). Geely is expected to gain from the SPA and CMA, along with Volvo's inputs on engineering and design elements.
