Abandoning alphanumeric indices in model names, the Volvo brand plans to release two new items at once. Both of them are crossovers, but the first will actually become the successor to the current Volvo XC90, and the second will simply expand the company’s lineup, occupying a niche between the XC60 and XC90 models.
Unlike Volvo’s future flagship, which will most likely be called Embla (after the first woman created by the gods in Norse mythology), the second new crossover does not yet have its own name. According to the publication 110km.ru, now it is indicated only by the in-house index Volvo V546.
It is planned that the novelty will be built on the next generation SPA2 modular platform and will receive an all-electric powertrain. The appearance of the new crossover of the brand will almost certainly inherit from one of the ready-made or just being prepared concept cars, and its interior, most likely, will be decorated in the “minimalism” style inherent in Scandinavia.
Serial production of the Volvo V546 is to be launched by 2025 at the American Volvo plant in Ridgeville. The approximate assembly volume of the model at the initial stage will be 100 thousand cars per year.
