The Volvo S80 will be replaced by S90
The new XC90 is based on the SPA modular platform, which is expected to be introduced soon. As we know, the new SUV comes on sale by next spring. However, soon after that, Volvo is planning to produce a novelty, which has to replace to S80 sedan. Certainly, the novelty will be also built on the SPA modular platform.
According to the representative of the auto manufacturer, the launching of the XC90 is the priority. Volvo plans to focus on exporting from the Chinese plants also to the U.S. auto market. After, the S90 production will be started by similar scheme.
The auto manufacturer has begun the global rebuild all lineup using the SPA modular platform. Both S90 and XC90 are only the first steps in five-year overhaul.
Moreover, Volva is also working on replacement for its current V70; it will be the new V90 as well.
The carmaker plans to introduce the new modular platform CMA, which is developed jointly with Geely Company. In that case, soon we will see a replacement for the compact crossover C30.
By introduction of replacements for its popular models, Volva hopes to increase selling, which fell to 11 per cent this year in the U.S.
