Volvo consolidates UK model line-up to focus on EV

Volvo is no longer taking orders for the XC40 plug-in hybrid and S90 saloon as it looks to focus on fully electric models.

The brand has also stopped taking orders for the V60 and V90 Cross Country variants.

A statement issued by the brand said: “We’re rapidly transforming our product offer, which means not only moving towards full electrification but also shifting to new platforms and technologies across all our cars.

“We will naturally need to evolve and consolidate our line-up as we prioritise fully electric cars and make this technological transition. As a result, and based on existing orders and available production for the UK market, plug-in hybrid versions of the XC40 Recharge, along with all V60 Cross Country, V90 Cross Country and S90 variants, have been removed from the UK line-up.”

The Volvo XC40 will remain available with the B3 and B4 mild-hybrid petrol engines, alongside the Recharge pure electric models.

The T4 and T5 plug-in hybrids will no longer be available.

Volvo will also continue selling the V90 estate.

The XC40 is Volvo’s best-selling model, with almost 10,000 registered this year to date.

More than half of those were petrol variants, with the electric variant taking the second largest share. 

The Volvo line-up is set to expand with the introduction of a new compact electric model, the EX30, shortly, while a new flagship EX90 is already available to order.

Sales of the Volvo S60 saloon were halted in October 2022, before resuming in February this year. The Volvo line-up now comprises: C40, XC40, XC60, XC90, S60, V60, V90 and EX90.
