Dear Mr. Volvo: Why Not San Antonio?

Chairman Håkan Samuelsson
Chief Executive Officer
Volvo Car Group
Gothenburg, Sweden

Dear Chairman Samuelsson:
We read with interest the news this week that Volvo Cars intends to open its first-ever North American automobile manufacturing plant, and that sites in several undisclosed states are under active consideration for the $500 million factory, although it will be some months before a decision is announced.
