Volvo Cars has unveiled the new S60 mid-size premium sports sedan at the company’s first US manufacturing plant in Charleston, South Carolina. The new S60 is the first Volvo car made in the US. It is also the first company car 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. In 2017, Volvo Cars was the first global car maker to announce its strategy that from 2019 all new models will be electrified.

“The new S60 is one of the most exciting Volvo cars we’ve ever made,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive of Volvo Cars. “It is a true driver’s car that gives us a strong position in the US and China saloon markets, creating more growth opportunities for Volvo Cars.” In a first for the segment, customers can access the new S60 via Volvo Cars’ new premium subscription service, Care by Volvo, which offers car access with no down payment via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership. The new S60 shares Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system with the new V60 mid-size estate, launched earlier this year, as well as the top-of-the-line 90 series cars and award-winning XC60, all of which have achieved industry-leading safety ratings.

New Volvo S60 features Sensus Connect infotainment system which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The intuitive control is a tablet-style touchscreen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment apps. Mechanically, the new S60 would be powered by two turbocharged and supercharged plug-in hybrid petrol engines. The T6 Twin Engine AWD plug-in hybrid will have a combined power output of 340hp while the award-winning T8 Twin Engine AWD plug-in hybrid will deliver 400bhp. Volvo’s proven T5 and T6 petrol engines will be available at launch in selected markets. Electrified versions of the new S60 will also offer a performance handling upgrade called Polestar Engineered.
