The new Volvo S60 sedan, to be launched later this spring, will be the first Volvo to be produced without a diesel engine, highlighting Volvo Cars' commitment to a long-term future beyond the traditional combustion engine.

All new Volvo models launched from 2019 will be available as either a mild petrol hybrid, plug-in petrol hybrid or battery electric vehicle. This is the most comprehensive electrification strategy in the car industry and Volvo Cars was the first traditional car maker to commit to all-out electrification in July 2017.

"Our future is electric and we will no longer develop a new generation of diesel engines," said Hakan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive of Volvo Cars. "We will phase out cars with only an internal combustion engine, with petrol hybrid versions as a transitional option as we move towards full electrification. The new S60 represents the next step in that commitment."
