Volvo to move away from diesel with new S60

Volvo V60 The Car Expert

The S60 is set to be revealed next month and production for the saloon is set to start this autumn at Volvo Car's SC plant, which will be the only site to build the model.

Back in February Volvo Cars CEO Håkan Samuelsson confirmed the company has stopped allocating capital to the development of new internal combustion engines, both diesel and gasoline.

Making a bold move toward achieving cleaner cars, Volvo Cars has announced that its upcoming new-gen Volvo S60 sedan will not have a diesel engine on offer.

Volvo says this move highlights its "commitment to a long-term future beyond the traditional combustion engine", although petrol power is not being given up on just yet as future models will still offer a choice between "mild hybrid" petrol, plug-in hybrid petrol and full electric power.

Although diesels now emit more Carbon dioxide per kilometer than their petrol counterparts, Samuelson said hybridisation will help match figures achieved by diesels.

Not the new Volvo S60 saloon, which is due late spring.

Instead, Volvo will launch the next-generation S60 with four-cylinder engines and two plug-in hybrid powertrains. Mild hybrid options will debut next year. In fact, Volvo was the first traditional auto maker to commit to all-out electrification in July 2017. Last summer Volvo announced a commitment to launching every new vehicle with some form of electrification.

The new S60 is yet to be revealed, but it will be based on the same platform as the V60 estate, which was launched earlier this year and is available with diesel engines.

The decision to make a diesel-free S60 doesn't affect Americans.

Production of the new S60 will start this fall at Volvo Cars' brand new manufacturing facility outside Charleston, South Carolina.
