Volvo considering offering V60 wagon in the US
That may not be the case, however. According to Automotive News, Volvo is rethinking its decision to not sell the V60 wagon, pictured, in the United States. The automaker had originally decided to not offer the V60 in our market due to declining American wagon sales. A decision is expected to be made sometime in the next quarter, and if approved, sales of the V60 could begin in the US within the next year.
At the Geneva Motor Show last week, Volvo showed off refreshed versions of nearly every vehicle in its lineup. In the US, these will be the only changes coming to the Volvo brand over the next two years. The next big product launch in the States will be the all-new XC90 crossover, developed under new parent company Geely. The range-topping SUV will ride on the company's new flexible SPA platform, which will also underpin the next-generation versions of the S60, S80 and XC60.
In the meantime, these overhauled 2014 models are expected to help Volvo gain more market share in the US. In 2013, the company's sales only improved one percent in a market that as a whole grew 13 percent. Volvo executives are hoping for a five-percent increase this year, following the 2014 models hitting dealerships this June.
