    Volvo Says Next-Generation of 40-Series Vehicles Coming to U.S., Including A Crossover


    • The next-generation Volvo V40 and family is coming to the U.S.

    There is some good news for Volvo fans as the company is planning to launch the next-generation of the 40-Series to U.S. within three years. Speaking with Automotive News, Volvo's senior vice president for r&d Peter Mertens said the next-generation V40, along with a new sedan and crossover.

     

    "We will have the next-generation 40 cars absolutely in the U.S. I think it was a mistake not having the V40, not being prepared for the U.S. It was a mistake, but it was in that time when the company was in extreme trouble," Mertens explained.

     

    Volvo's U.S. dealers and certain staff at the U.S. office have been clamoring for the V40 for a few years. At the time, Volvo couldn't send over the V40 since it wasn't developed for the U.S, and it would take a lot of time and money for it to meet the various standards.

    I think it could easily spank a dank a CLA250 or BMW 1 Series.

     

    Like really, just use the smaller sausage rule to make a Volvo S90/V90 baby.

     

    I'm okay with that!!

     

    Same car, different length, lower price. Do what the plane makers do. Same sausage, different length...
