TOKYO -- Volvo's all-new electric vehicle slated for launch this year will be manufactured in China and exported to Europe and Japan, the Swedish automaker's CEO said in an interview with Nikkei.

The new strategic EV will target a "brand new segment," said Volvo Cars CEO Jim Rowan. "It's going to be a brand new demographic, a younger customer [and] a lot more online sales."
