Volvo’s US boss has revealed that Volvo are planning a new, smaller range of cars – the Volvo 20 Series – to sit below the new 40 Series range.
And next there’s going to be a completely new compact range – the Volvo 20 Series.
Speaking to Car & Driver, Volvo US boss, Lex Kerssemakers – the man who first revealed that the new electric Volvo will be a compact model costing around £35k – has revealed there’s a Volvo 20 Series in the planning.
That could mean, as the headline suggests, the arrival of an XC20, V20 and S20, although it’s possible not all the normal Volvo body styles would be available in the compact when it does arrive.
When it does, and Kerssemakers gave no indication of timescale, it will doubtless be powered by Volvo’s new 1.5 litre three-cylinder engines, and it would almost certainly include an electrified option or two – a plug-in hybrid and even a BEV.
Kerssemakers went on to say that Volvo don’t have coupes and convertibles in their plans at the moment, although we are still expecting (hoping) that Volvo will deliver more frivolous cars once they’ve finished establishing their new range.
