New S60 Sports Sedan Will Be First Volvo Car Made in the U.S.A.

 

Volvo has announced that the new S60 sports sedan will be the first car made at the company’s new manufacturing plant near Charleston, South Carolina. The combined car launch and factory opening reinforce Volvo Cars’ commitment to the US, an important market for the company and its new sedan.

The new S60 is the first Volvo car to be sold without a diesel engine, signaling 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 award-winning turbo charged and supercharged T8 Twin Engine Plug-In Hybrid will be available in the new S60, delivering 313 horsepower with a rear electric motor adding 87 horsepower for a combined power output of 400 horsepower.  The T5 FWD and T6 AWD will also be available. The T5 FWD, T6 AWD and T8 Twin Engine Plug-In Hybrid will carry a MSRP of $35,800, $40,300 and $54,400 respectively.
