Ford Motor Selling Volvo

Ford motors has taken a very decisive step for one of their fantastic Swedish brand Volvo, the agreement has been passed between the company and the Chinese carmaker Geely for about $1.8 in a multinational sale expected to close in the third quarter of this year. This Sunday the announcement for the pending agreement was made ad it has been notified that Ford will supply powertrains, stamping and other parts to Geely after the sale of Volvo. This deal can thus prove to be a big hit for Ford because most of the money they’ll receive as cash and they can use this in some other core brands of the company.
