Volvo Says No To Diesel Engines With New S60 Saloon

Elegant new Volvo V60 estate – saloon version will be petrol or petrol-electric only

New Volvo V60

The company has just announced that its new S60 sedan will be the first such model to be produced without a single diesel offering in the range, and that rule will also apply to every "all-new" Volvo model launched after 2019.

The Swedish auto maker is expected to announcement today at the Financial Times' Future of the vehicle Summit in London.

Samuelsson told the FT: "We're not saying diesel is more dirty, but it's more complicated and more expensive".

Volvo has also confirmed that all of its new models launched from 2019 will be available as either a mild petrol hybrid, plug-in petrol hybrid or battery electric vehicle.

When confirming the exclusion of diesel engines, Samuelsson said: "Our future is electric and we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines".

Volvo's transition away from the internal combustion engine may be starting now, but it won't happen quickly. The S60's wagon sibling, the V60, was unveiled earlier this year.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will reportedly announce a star signing after their FA Cup final against Chelsea this weekend. Because I've got things, I'm kind of more excited about the future than looking back and being sad that it's over".


Instead, Volvo will launch the next-generation S60 with four-cylinder engines and two plug-in hybrid powertrains. Mild hybrid versions will follow next year.

Volvo will produce the new S60 at its brand new Charleston, South Carolina assembly plant.

Volvo made headlines previous year by announcing all new cars from 2019 will feature some form of hybridisation or electrification.

A switch away from diesel cars could cause problems for authorities trying to meet Carbon dioxide emissions targets, as petrol cars typically emit more Carbon dioxide. Samuelsson reiterated the company's commitment Wednesday with the announcement of the diesel death.

Last month, Volvo reinforced its electrification strategy by stating that it aims for fully electric cars to make up 50 per cent of its global sales by 2025.
