Volvo pulls S60 from sale as it re-evaluates line-up


Volvo has pulled the Volvo S60 from its line-up, citing a momentary selection as it re-evaluates its vary.

One of only two saloons the Swedish manufacturer supplied, the BMW 3 Collection rival commenced at £44,005 and was available with either a 246bhp moderate-hybrid petrol engine or a 448bhp petrol-electrical plug-in hybrid powertrain (in S60 Recharge variety). 

With Volvo aiming to changeover to an all-electric powered manufacturer by 2030, this choice phone calls into dilemma the long run of the executive saloon, particularly as it doesn’t have a totally electric powered variant.

Nonetheless, the Volvo V60 estate, which shares the very same platform and powertrain alternatives, remains on sale, as do the larger Volvo S90 saloon and Volvo V90 estate.

About the S60, a Volvo spokesperson explained: “No conclusion has but been produced about long term model designs. We will talk any updates as correct.

“We’re frequently re-evaluating our product or service portfolio and as aspect of this process have quickly taken out the S60 from sale in the United kingdom.”

Another reason for the determination could be the S60’s product sales. Figures produced by Jato Dynamics (which brings together S60 and V60 gross sales) exhibit that the cars have experienced a 51% fall in registrations so far this year (to 16,797) in contrast with 2021 – the major tumble in the Volvo line-up.

We suppose that the S60 is mainly to blame for this tumble, specified that the V60 continues to be on sale.
