Volvo Cars’ swift action to mitigate the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and maintain open plants has led to a 15 day limited number of days off at the Swedish brand plant in Torsland, well below the industry average, which means the company is now well placed to meet rapidly recovering demand. In addition, during the closing of dealerships, the company launched an online purchase service for its Volvo Cars Stay Home Store.
