Volvo presents its first car made in the USA

On June 21, 2018 a new Volvo S60 mid-size premium sports sedan is being officially unveiled at the Volvo’s plant in the USA. Both the new plant in Charleston (South Carolina) and the model first made in the USA are launched today.

Håkan Samuelsson,Volvo’s CEO, said:

It is a true driver’s car that gives us a strong position in the US and China sedan markets, creating more growth opportunities for Volvo Cars.

As we previously informed, no diesel engines are offered for the new car. Volvo Cars was the first global car maker to announce its strategy to electrify all new models from 2019.

The S60 got two turbo Twin Engine AWD plug-in hybrid petrol engines: T6 with 340 hp and T8 with 400 hp. Volvo’s T5 and T6 petrol engines will be available at launch.

Customers first for the segment can use the Care by Volvo subscription service, which means car access with no down payment via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership.

The S60 shares SPA platform, safety and infotainment systems with the new Volvo V60 wagon, the top 90 Series and the XC60 – leaders of safety ratings. So, the new S60 will be one of the safest cars on the road due to the City Safety technology (with auto braking and pedestrians, cyclists, large animals recognition).

А performance handling offer called Polestar Engineered is available for the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid versions. It upgrades the car’s wheels, suspension, brakes and engine control unit, providing combined output of 415 hp.
