Volvo stops C30 production in December

The Volvo C30 production will be stopped in December as the Swedish based automaker has recently announced.

Before pulling the plug off the Volvo C30, the carmaker will produce a final edition of the model, which will enlighten the company’s fans and these will be the last C30 models to leave the assembly line after almost six years of production.

“Looking ahead, however, we have made the decision to discontinue C30 production to better position Volvo for the future and the next stages of our model portfolio. We encourage C30 fans to consider the new Limited Edition model currently available, of which only 250 specially numbered cars will be built. With a design that pays homage to the vintage 1800ES, we expect both collectors and enthusiasts to embrace it and carry on the C30 legacy”, as the company says in its official press release.

The Volvo C30 will be replaced by the V40, which was officially presented to the public during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The new Volvo V40 is coming in three trim levels, the ES, the SE and the SE Lux, and its future owners will have to choose between five engines, two petrol burners and three diesels. The official starting price of the new Volvo V40 has been set at 19,745 GBP on the road in the UK and for the money, customers will get the 1112 HP and 199 lb-ft of torque 1.6L diesel engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
