More XC cars for Volvo

More new models are on the way to Volvo showrooms, but they won’t be S-badged saloons or C-badged coupés.

Lex Kerssemakers, vice-president of brand, business and product strategy, says the carmaker is happy with those line-ups.

“The next step for us will be growth in the V range of estate cars, which is where we have been strong in the past, and also the XC range we created 10 years ago,” he says. “My job is to fill some numbers between XC10 and XC90; there’s space for them.”

Kerssemakers also rules out moving into new market segments, such as sporty two-seaters.

“We have so many ideas with V and XC models that I don’t see us expanding beyond that. It’s not us,” he says.

Volvo is expected to launch biofuel versions of its C30, S40 and V50 in the UK later this year.
