Bell Tolls for Volvo S60 in North America

Published on June 18, 2024 in News by Guillaume Rivard

The Volvo S60 compact luxury sedan, the current generation of which was introduced six years ago, will not be renewed. In fact, it will stop being manufactured altogether toward the end of the month at the Ridgeville, South Carolina plant for the North American market.

Production will continue for a while in China for both the Chinese and Australian markets, however.

After the first reports surfaced online on Monday, The Car Guide received confirmation from Volvo Canada that the 2025 model year will be the last for the S60 on our continent. Throughout the remainder of 2024, the company will sell the final units about to roll off the line and won’t import cars from China.

As for the V60 wagon that’s closely related on the S60, it is still currently available, but we doubt it will survive very long.

Getting back to the S60, modest sales combined with Volvo’s goal to offer an all-electric portfolio by 2030 largely explain the sedan’s demise. Remember, the plan is to introduce a new EV every year for the rest for the decade.

For now, we’ve only seen SUVs and crossovers including the little EX30 and the three-row EX90. The latter recently entered production at the South Carolina factory, which has an annual capacity of 150,000 units. When will we see a conventional electric car from Volvo?

A pre-production prototype of what could be called the ES90 left the assembly line in China last December. It is said to be built on the SPA2 architecture and equipped with the same 111kWh battery as the EX90. A reveal may take place later this year, so stay tuned.
