Volvo on Wednesday announced that from 2019 it will no longer launch cars fitted with diesel engines.

The new S60, a premium mid-size sports saloon, is based on Volvo's in-house-developed Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, which also underpins the company's award-winning new 90 series and 60 series cars. "We will phase out cars with only an internal combustion engine, with [gasoline] hybrid versions as a transitional option as we move towards full electrification". In a recent statement it confirmed there will be no diesel option for the new S60.

Instead, they will be available as either a mild petrol hybrid, plug-in petrol hybrid or battery electric vehicle.

The next-generation Volvo S60 saloon - to be revealed very soon - will be the first Volvo to be produced without a diesel engine, the company has confirmed. The S60's wagon sibling, the V60, was unveiled earlier this year.

The upcoming S60 sedan will come powered by a mix of four cylinder petrol Drive-E engines and hybrid powertrains.

"Diesel will be much more complicated for more consumers, and much more expensive, too" Samuelsson said to the FT. A mild hybrid option will launch next year. Last summer Volvo announced a commitment to launching every new vehicle with some form of electrification.

As well as market trends in Europe, the decision also reflects the key target market for the S60: the United States, where diesel accounts for a small percentage of sales.

It follows the automaker's announcement last July that every auto it launches from 2019 will feature some form of electrification, whether it be mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid or pure electric power.

Volvo will produce the new S60 at its brand new Charleston, South Carolina assembly plant.
