Volvo's New Era will Include New Names for all Models

Volvo’s New Era will Include New Names for all Models

The second-generation Volvo XC90 came with a bang in August 2014. Redesigned from the ground up, the SUV ditched the first-gen’s dated image for a stunning, new exterior looks and an ultra-luxurious interior that are about to spread across the company’s entire lineup. And it seems a few Volvo products will shift to brand-new nameplates in the process, if we are to believe a report coming from Dutch paper De Telegraaf.

Specifically, Volvo is has decided that the next-generation S80 sedan, V70 wagon and XC70 crossover need not just makeovers, but new names too. And all three will be launched within the 90-Series family. The range-topping sedan will switch to S90, the station wagon will become the V90, while the XC70 will be renamed V90 Cross Country. The motivation behind this decision is that all three vehicles will grow bigger and include even more luxury amenities, De Telegraaf adds.

Also in the mix, per reports, is an entry-level 40-Series lineup and a mid-range 60-Series line. Within these series will be S sedans, V wagons and XC SUVs. There is also the chance for slightly heavier-duty Cross Country versions of the V40 and V60 wagons.

There’s no official information when these new vehicles will arrive, but rumor has it the S90 is scheduled to debut in late 2015. The sedan will reportedly be followed by a coupe version and long-wheelbase S90 L for the Chinese market. Volvo will launch new-generation models of its entire lineup by 2017.

Volvo putting V70 and V8 Sedans on the chopping block

Volvo putting V70 and V8 Sedans on the chopping block

2008 Volvo V70

Volvo seems to be trimming the fat in regards to their product lineup. A leaked Volvo product update shows the elimination of some models while others receive modifications that Volvo hopes will fill the void. The first model to go was the S80 V8 whose orders have already ceased. The S80 V6 will be supercharged to 300hp and 325lb-ft of torque to make up for the disappearing act of the V8.

In addition, Volvo will be dropping the 168hp and 170lb-ft 2.4i engine that was offered in the S40 and V50 and only offering the models in the higher powered T5 engine with a 227hp and 236 lb-ft engine. The models will still maintain the combined fuel economy rating of 24mpg. The T5 will also only be available in FWD with an automatic transmission powertrain.

The biggest change happening at Volvo is the elimination of the V70. The launch of the 2011 models will bring an updated model of the XC70 who has outsold the V70 every year since 2000. The XC70 will now include a FWD model eliminating the key reason consumers chose the V70 over the XC70.
Final production for the eliminated models will be on May 14, 2010 with a projected sales rundown at the end of the 3rd quarter.

As we close yet another chapter in car history, we must wonder where the original, reliable wagons of yesteryear have gone. Volvo seemed to have the market cornered in the wagon department and, with a foul societal swoop, has decided to join the ranks of the high-powered SUVs. Is this a decision that will make the Volvo rise in status or break the spirit that once was? You decide.

Next Volvo V70 renderings

Volvo is preparing the next generation V70 and V50, and according to AutoCar, they could be the first in a new generation of wagons to scrap the conventional long roof and low driving position for a more SUV-like higher roofline and driving position.

“Within Volvo we are re-examining the estate (wagon) car and many people are currently scratching their heads,” a senior Volvo manager told Autocar at the recent unveiling of the XC60. “We’d be interested in your opinions.”

Volvo will also replace the S60 in 2010 and the XC90 will get a major makeover (including a possible diesel hybrid drivetrain) in 2010 with a replacement coming in 2012.

Flexifuel engine for Volvo V70 and S80

Flexifuel engine for Volvo V70 and S80

The Volvo V70 andS80 are now also available with a five-cylinder, 2.5-litre turbocharged Flexifuel engine with a power output of 200 hp and 300 Nm of torque.

Fuel consumption (EU combined) for the new 2.5-litre Flexifuel version is 9.2 l/100 km (V70 and S80) with the manual gearbox and 10.2 l/100 km (V70) and 10.1 l/100 km (S80) with the automatic gearbox.
The Flexifuel cars can run on E85 bioethanol or 95-octane unleaded petrol - or any mix of these two fuels. Due to its lower energy content, fuel consumption when running on E85 is 30-40 percent higher than when running on petrol. The exact difference depends on variables such as driving style, exterior temperature and variations in the fuel specification.


The Flexifuel variants of the Volvo S40, V50 and C30 have a four-cylinder 1.8-litre naturally aspirated engine, the 1.8F, which produces 125 hp (92 kW) and 165 Nm of torque.
All engines and other relevant components have been adapted for driving on E85 through a number of modifications.
