Volvo's 2019 S60 will be its first vehicle to be offered without a diesel engine when the sedan goes into production this summer at its new plant near Charleston, S.C. The Swedish automaker also confirmed it will offer the sedan in two plug-in hybrid variants when it goes on sale, with mild hybrid versions following in 2019.
Volvo Cars and Volvo Trucks are separate companies, and have been for almost 20 years. The separation occurred in 1999, when Volvo Group sold its car manufacturing business to Ford, which in turn sold Volvo Cars to Geely in 2010. But despite being separate, the vehicle makers share a name, and now they will also share data between their products to prevent accidents.
