    For a long time the Chinese had the manufacture muscles and access to high tech methods as well exposure to the latest in technology. What they wanted and needed was a strong brand name that was well know at home and around the world. Their goal was to became manufacture of automobiles for the rest of the world. They try buying Hummer and then realized that before inking the paper for ownership. this brand was out of fashion and out of step with the time therefore a lame duck. In Volvo they can build an industry around it and protect that brand at all cost. Mr Li comment is pointed at fashion stylist constrict Ford has forced on Volvo. Remember the old Volvo how cutting edge it was? Fasten your seat belts it going to roller-coaster ride

    Now Geely can take a turn at pillaging Volvo for technology as Ford did. Taurus, Flex, MKS, and Sable all owe their lineage to the Volvo S-80. In addition, the rollover control system in use in Ford SUVs came straight from the Volvo XC-90. So while Ford will sell Volvo at less than what it paid for it on paper, the technology that it got in return certainly ensured that it really lost nothing.
