Volvo Allows Consumers to Configure Vehicle Specs Online

Have you ever visited a franchised Tesla dealership? No, you haven't. That's because the automaker, along with offering an exclusive lineup of all-electric vehicles, doesn't have any. They require their customers to order vehicles online directly through the company, not at a local dealership. Volvo is now testing an online ordering system for its 2017 flagship sedan.

The launch of the 2017 S90 luxury sedan will come with one interesting change. Buyers will be able to spec out the exact vehicle they want online and then submit the order to a "Volvo Concierge." The concierge can finalize the order within a few days, and the purchaser can select which Volvo dealer they want the car shipped to. So while you're not buying the car directly from Volvo, the way Tesla makes their customers do it, this will be a different process than making a direct purchase through your local Volvo dealership - like we've all done in the past.

At Howard Orloff Volvo Cars, we can help you with this new process and explain all the options that you'll have available. Deciding on which new vehicle to buy isn't always the easiest job, but with our well-trained staff by your side you'll get exactly what you want. Then you can have your new S90 shipped right to our Chicago dealership! And as always, whether you're looking for a new or pre-owned Volvo, you're sure to find what you want here at Howard Orloff.

The 2017 Volvo S90 will be the first vehicle in the United States to offer semi-autonomous driving as a standard feature. This system allows the vehicle to speed up, brake and steer at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. It's also the first vehicle in the world equipped with large animal detection with auto brake and a road mitigation feature that is capable of dialing in slight steering inputs if it senses that the S90 is about to leave the road.

These are just a few of the technological advances offered on the next Volvo S90. Buyers will have an exciting list of options and amenities to choose from, and these vehicles are already available for ordering.
