The model will be the company’s next step in its path to complete electrification.

Volvo wants to move away from the combustion engine. The new Volvo S60 sedan will be launched later
this year, and it will be the first Volvo to be produced without a diesel engine.
In fact, all cars form Volvo launched from 2019 onwards will be mild petrol hybrids, plug-in petrol
hybrids or battery electric vehicles. It is the first traditional carmaker to commit to all-out electrification
in July 2017. “Our future is electric and we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines,”
said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars. “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. The new S60 represents the next step in that commitment.”
In India, Volvo is expected to launch its new Mercedes GLA-rival, the XC40 in a few months.
