All-New Volvo S60 Gets Outed On Twitter By Company CEO

Our first look at Volvo’s upcoming 2019 S60 saloon comes courtesy of company CEO Hakan Samuelsson, who tweeted an image of a camouflaged prototype performing winter tests in Norway.

He obviously couldn’t say much, seen as how we’re still months away from the model’s official unveiling, this summer in South Carolina. The image does however provide us with small pieces of information, such as the presence of U.S.-spec headlights.

We wouldn’t read too much into those blacked-out wheels though, since those are the same type of wheels Volvo used while crash testing the new V60 – so they’re not as intricate as other wheel designs introduced on the wagon model.

Otherwise, the front fascia design on this prototype appears identical to the one unveiled by the new V60, which was to be expected. The two cars will share not just the same type of styling or the same scalable product architecture, but probably also the same engine range, comprised of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid units.

The latter two, a T6 and a T8, should therefore produce 340 PS and 390 PS respectively, if they are to mirror the specs found on the V60.

The only real unknown when it comes to the S60, concerns its rearward styling. Aside from the larger S90 model’s styling, we really don’t have anything else to go on when speculating about what the new car could look like.

    The chinese are smart, they removed themselves from the visible positions within the company to give the appearance it’s a real swedish brand.

      So why did they put Li Shufu as chairman of the board?

      The reason you might get the feeling of “a real Swedish brand” is because it is still mainly run by Swedes even at top level.

      Even among the big bosses – the board of directors – there are only 4 Chinese people out of 13 (3 are from the UK and USA).

      In executive management, where stuff is actually being done, it’s only 1 Chinese guy out of 15, and that’s the VP for Asia Pacific.
