Volvo Will Dump Diesel Starting With Next S60 Sedan

Volvo will not offer a diesel in its new S60 sedan, which will be released this spring. The new S60 will be available with a range of four-cylinder gasoline engines as well as two versions of its gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid powertrain.

 

 

This move comes as Volvo accelerates its shift toward electrified powertrains and away from diesels, which accounted for almost 80 percent of its sales in Europe last year. Diesel sales have taken a hit in Europe because of potential bans on older, more polluting cars with the powertrain and the high cost of improvements to ensure that new diesel vehicles comply with tougher European emissions regulations.

 

 

Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelson said in a statement that the company’s future is electric and they will no longer develop new generations of diesel engines. In addition to that, the company will phase out cars with gasoline-hybrid versions as a transitional option as they move toward full electrification, the new S60 representing the next step in that commitment.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
