Beijing, China – Volvo Car Corporation has launched the all-new S80L in Beijing, a long-wheelbase model made specifically for the Chinese market.
The S80L model features a wheelbase that is 140 mm longer than a conventional S80, and includes numerous upgraded features. The vehicle also includes Volvo On Call service, as well as Car Accident Aid; Volvo is one of the few manufacturers to offer such a service in China, where most companies only offer assistance on vehicle malfunction.
“Volvo S80L is an all-new model specially tailored for the Chinese market, and also the most luxurious car Volvo has ever made,” said Dr. Alexander Klose, CEO of Volvo Cars China. “The stretched wheelbase fully meets the discerning demands of Chinese luxury car consumers. Meanwhile, S80L proves Volvo’s leadership in terms of safety and design.”
Features include a rear-seat entertainment system, more deeply padded leather seats, premium sound system, and a refrigerator mounted in the rear seat.
