Preview: Volvo V60 and XC100 flagshipEnlarge Photo
Volvo execs hope to sell more than 600,000 cars in the following year, a feat that would be difficult given its limited model range. The new C30 hatch is expected to lift sales substantially as will the XC60 when it finally goes on sale.
This latest rendering was compiled with information sourced from Volvo’s design manager Steve Mattin, who revealed sketches of future models at the recent Geneva Motor Show. Volvo’s new range will be getting certain design elements that will be shared across the entire lineup including running lights positioned next to an enlarged grille.
For development of the XC100, Volvo will be using parts shared with lesser models in its lineup. However, the new flagship could be the first Volvo model equipped with a hybrid drivetrain and will most likely be able to run on E85-based fuels.
