Default New Volvo Models - incl pic of V60

As some of you know, I am spending my christmas & new year in Sweden and Denmark with my family and friends and while here have been doing some digging of articles of new Volvo models.

According to the biggest car mag here, Teknikens Värld these new models are still to come (despite chinese ownership):

S60 - 2010
V30 - small estate 2011
S40 - look like new S60, lighter than current S40 2012
P20 - Technology from Fiesta (!), small and sporty 2011
XC90 - at last 2013
V100 - enormous estate (we've all heard about this one for last 10 yrs) 2012
V60 - new estate of S60 - 2011

Drawing of new V60...


Personally I really like the look of that.....


As Sweden is the way it is, by entering that reg number on the pic, one can reveal some really interesting things....

That the car is owned by Volvo (and was first put on road on 16/10 2007!).
Regged on 4/9-2009.
VIN number: YV1MK675182052996.
2521cc (as in 2.5 litres) engine PETROL!!
169KW (not sure of conversion of this)
208g/km
Manual gearbox.
Max speed: 240km/h
1430kgs
1500kgs max towing weight.
430kgs load weight.
Tyres: 215/45R18 93W.
L x W x H: 4250 x 1800 x 1450mm.

there was talk of a S 100 in the mid 1990's , volvo developed a V10 with cosworth to go in it .. a few engines existed at the time , its basicly 2 x 850 engines forming a V 10 ..

Are these cars actually in the pipeline? I would love to see a proper estate made. It's strange that the 940 estate was never replaced. Thanks for taking the time to find the info for us.

I wonder what the Ford/Geely Volvo sale will do to this...

That V60 looks good and I like the sound of the new S40.

Fingers crossed.

If Volvo really can make these plans come true, I think they may have a few winners. The V100 sounds very interesting, unfortunately, the article did not state any engines etc (other than Vagverkets info on the V60).

It will take a minimum of 5 years for Geely to put one of their designs on the road so some if not all should make it through to production.
