2019 Volvo S60 officially debuts, Swedish style meets Southern speed
23 June, 2018, 18:43
In 2017 Volvo announced its strategy that from 2019 all new models will be electrified.
Swedish automaker Volvo is hosting a celebration at its new plant in Berkeley County on Wednesday.
Fancy one of these instead of a BMW 3 Series, or new Mercedes-Benz C-Class?
Volvo has taken the wraps off the all-new S60 sedan at its new plant in Charleston, South Carolina, United States, which will be the model's global production site.
Construction on Volvo's SC plant started in 2015, long before any serious threats of tariffs bolstering the economic incentive of assembling vehicles in the U.S.
Yup, it's definitely a Volvo.
. "I am proud to say I am from SC". "The new S60 represents the next step in that commitment". The sporty looking S60 T5 R-Design costs about 43,000, while the dressy S60 T6 Inscription is priced at about $44,000.
Is the interior the same, too?
"Our U.S. business is developing well, our cars have won prestigious awards [the XC90 was the 2016 North American Truck of the Year while the XC60 was the 2018 North American Utility of the Year], and the new SC facility will be a big asset to both Volvo Cars and the community". The Sensus Connect system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
A trio of engines lie under the 2019 S60's hood, each with its own name: T5, T6, and T8. A limited number of Polestar Engineered cars will also be available through Care by Volvo, from June 28.
The Volvo executive was maybe 25 percent joking during a briefing on the new V60 when he said, "If we do anything right, it's a wagon."Indeed".
Like the V60 and XC60... and the whole 90 Series of cars, for that matter, the S60 uses Volvo's Scaleable Product Architecture platform. Henrik Green, Volvo's research and development boss, said: "The active chassis and driving modes deliver excellent control and an engaged platform that makes this a driver's auto".
Volvo is making hybrid vehicles at all of its plants now and promises all its cars will have an electric component next year.
"Our future is electric and we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines", said Samuelsson.
However, where the V60 impressed on its first drive for its more comfort-orientated approach than rivals, Volvo top brass continually refer to the new auto with phrases like "engaged performance" and "excellent control", hinting at the S60's sportier pretensions. "We will phase out cars with only an internal combustion engine, with petrol hybrid versions as a transitional option as we move towards full electrification". Volvo didn't list pricing for the Polestar Engineered version of the T8.
The new S60 is the first Volvo vehicle to be sold without a diesel offer, signalling the company's industry-leading commitment to electrification and a long-term future beyond the traditional combustion engine.
When can I get one?
It's unclear if both will be sold in the U.S., or if it'll just be the T8.
