The new Volvo XC40 crossover will be launched this year, as will a replacement for the XC60.
The XC40 will be the first model in the fourth-generation 40-Series range, and will also be the first Volvo to use the company’s new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA).

Styling for the new XC40 was previewed with last year’s Concept 40.1, and will boost the number of crossovers in the Volvo’s range to three.

2017 will be a busy year for the Swedish brand, as it will also launch the second-generation XC60, which is currently Volvo’s most popular model. Once the XC60 is out, Volvo will launch replacements for the closely related S60 sedan and V60 wagon.
After that, the Swedish marque will focus its engineering attention on its first fully electric vehicles, which is due on the market in 2019. Green says that this new EV will “not [be] a one off”.
