No diesel for new Volvo S60 saloon

Share

The new S60, a premium mid-size sports saloon, is based on Volvo's in-house-developed Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, which also underpins the company's new 90 series and 60 series cars.

Volvo will be revealing its new S60 sedan in a matter of weeks.

In 2017, Volvo confirmed plans to electrify all new models from 2019 onward, with powertrains set to include hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric versions.

Hakan Samuelsson explains that the future of Volvo "is electric and we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines". The S60's estate version, the V60, was launched earlier this year in Stockholm.

The S60 will be the last Volvo to launch with conventional, non-hybridised petrol engines as the mild-hybrid derivatives are only expected to come on stream in 2019.

"We're not saying diesel is more dirty", Samuelsson told the FT ahead of the speech, "But it's more complicated and more expensive".

Production of the S60 will start later this year at Volvo's new plant near Charleston, South Carolina. In fact, Volvo was the first traditional vehicle maker to commit to all-out electrification in July 2017.

Samuelsson went on to explain that Volvo now feels that hybrid, mild-hybrid, and plugin-hybrid technology have overtaken diesel not just in terms of reducing emissions, but also now in terms of cost, both at the time of vehicle development, and when that vehicle is subsequently in use. Production of the new S60 will start this fall at Volvo Cars' new manufacturing facility in the U.S. state of SC.

Samuelson said hybridisation could be the key to helping petrol cars match the Carbon dioxide emissions targets of diesel cars while offering superior fuel economy.
