The Swedish manufacturer, now under Chinese tutelage, is set to celebrate its 90th anniversary since the arrival of the first Volvo car – the ÖV4 that was built back in 1927.
As such, the company is bringing important models to the upcoming New York Auto Show, kicking off April 12 with the first press day. Volvo is premiering for North America the Geneva Motor Show revealed all-new XC60 midsize SUV, a model that will start coming out of the company’s factory in Torslanda, Sweden in a matter of days. Volvo has a lot riding on this particular model – the current one represented around 30 percent of the brand’s worldwide deliveries. In the United States, Volvo is offering the XC60 with three already known powertrains – 250-hp T5, 316-hp T6, and the flagship 400-hp T8 Twin Engine.
Volvo is also bringing to the New York Auto Show the subtly tweaked 2018 S90 sedan, coming with some mild upgrades for the new model year. And to properly mark the 90th anniversary, attendees at the Jacob Javits Convention Center will get to marvel at a fully restored Volvo 123 “Amazon” Wagon, sitting alongside other classic models such as the Duett or the P1800.
