This interesting story is related, and shows Geely’s (Volvo’s owner) trajectory toward global auto powerhouse.
The yet-to-be-finalised plans for Proton are just one strand of a Geely project to revamp factories at home and abroad using joint platforms it has been perfecting with Volvo since 2013. Geely bought the Swedish brand 10 years ago for $1.8 billion – a deal that raised its international profile and sent shockwaves through the global auto trade.
Senior Geely officials and engineers told Reuters that a project dubbed Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) will allow them to develop, design and build different types of compact cars with similar mechanical layout faster than before – and at lower cost.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-autos-geely-volvo-focus-idUSKCN256001
