"The new S60 represents the next step in that commitment".
The next-generation VolvoS60 saloon - to be revealed very soon - will be the first Volvo to be produced without a diesel engine, the company has confirmed.
Although diesels now emit more Carbon dioxide per kilometer than their petrol counterparts, Samuelson said hybridisation will help match figures achieved by diesels. Kicking-off the move, the firm's new Volvo S60 saloon will be available with petrol and petrol hybrid power only.
Volvo's transition away from the internal combustion engine may be starting now, but it won't happen quickly.
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.
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.
Speaking to the FT, Hakan said the only advantage diesels now have for drivers is better fuel economy, but "you can get that back with a mild-hybrid engine". The S60's estate version, the V60, was launched earlier this year in Stockholm. The Charleston plant will be the only manufacturing location for the new S60, meaning American-built S60s will be sold in the USA market as well as overseas through exports. The new car's global production base will be in Charleston, South Carolina.
At the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, Volvo Cars president and chief executive Håkan Samuelsson said that the company aims for pure electric vehicles to make up 50 per cent of sales by 2025. Specific options for the United States will be announced at a later date.
