Volvo Cars' only production facility in the United States is adding another electrified vehicle to its portfolio. Volvo has announced that it will build the upcoming all-electric Polestar 3 SUV for its affiliate brand at its South Carolina factory.

Volvo opened its Ridgeville, SC facility in 2018 and currently builds the S60 luxury sedan with gasoline-only and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Starting in 2022, the plant will begin making the redesigned 2022 XC90 SUV, including an all-electric version and batteries for electric vehicles (EVs). In addition, Volvo and Polestar jointly announced that the Polestar 3 SUV will join the expanding EV lineup and, while the companies did not say when production would start, it's likely to begin next year.
