Volvo got there estimates wrong for this vehicle!!
They cant get the estimates wrong , you have to come up with a realistic figure for setting up the assembly line , people needed , parts needed etc . They estimated correctly but can't anticipate the car winning 2 major awards as soon as it is launched , they have to adapt now as they go along ..
My comments are only based on my opinions and vast experience .
