News Spied! Redesigned Volvo S60 Caught Completely Undisguised
Volvo's first EV will be a hatchback shooting for 310-mile range
It will offer a selection of various motors and batteries.The car, which will use Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, will also borrow the 40-series nomenclature. Volvo R&D head Henrik Green told Autocar that the new EV will have a target range of about 310 miles, considerably more than the concept's 217-mile driving range. "It feels like every month we are updating the requirement," said Green, "trying to add new competitive edges to the car because the technology is moving so fast now on a lot of areas, so it's much more of a moving target.
Last month,, and as expected, it looks fantastic. We're big fans of , but it now looks frumpy and outdated next to . Considering how similar Volvo's 90-series wagon and sedan are, we also had a feeling Volvo wouldn't change much other than the roofline when it turned the V60 into the S60 sedan. Turns out, we were correct.
We know this because, the Swedish car magazine famous for the "moose test" it conducts, recently published a photo of the new S60 sitting completely undisguised. And yes, it looks like a sedan version of the V60. Or . As attractive as both those cars are, that's a good thing. Sometimes the same-sausage-different-length approach to car design feels a little lazy, but at least for now, it works for Volvo.

It also looks like Volvo's changed a couple of things to differentiate the new S60 from the larger S90. For example, the license plate has been moved from the bumper to the trunk, and the character line that runs along the side of the car adds a sportier feel. It also looks like the trunk lid has an integrated decklid spoiler, but that may not be standard across the board. After all, as nice as those black wheels look, they're probably not what we'll see on a base S60.
As far as the front end goes, Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson recentlythat gives us a pretty clear idea of how it will look.

Based on what we've seen so far, the new S60 will be one seriously good looking car. Volvo may have tweaked a few things here and there, but the V60's grille, headlights, and bumper all appear to be unchanged on this S60 prototype. The black wheels also look identical to the ones shown in the photo of the undisguised car.
Thankfully, we shouldn't have to wait long to drive Volvo's upcomingfighter. The official reveal is planned for this summer, with production beginning later this year.
