Volvo Planning New C60 Coupe?


New C60 coupe could be just what Volvo needs to spearhead a new product offensive.

With the demise of the C30 hatchback and C70 convertible, Volvo will soon be without a two-door model. No biggie, you say? Volvo is better at wagons and crossovers? That may be the case today, but it wasn’t always so. The classic P1800 made in the 60s and early 70s was a stunner and remains so even today. Now Automobile magazine is reporting that Volvo is looking to rekindle the spirit of the P1800 with a new C60 sports coupe.

Based on Volvo’s Scalable Platform Architecture, the new C60 would give the Swedish automaker something a tad more exciting in its lineup. But it’s not the only new model it has in the pipeline. There’s a new XC90 coming next year, followed by an S90 sedan (to replace the S80) and a V90 wagon (to replace the V70). There’s also talk of a Golf rival to be based on another platform altogether to slot in below the V40, and a new XC40 crossover to be based on that model as well. In short, Volvo and its parent company Geely have big plans in store.
