It will be assembled at Volvo’s North Charleston plant in South Carolina.
The new vehicle will squeeze in between the XC60 and XC90 size-wise.
Volvo is headed towards all EVs by 2030.
Volvo’s plans to go full-EV are well underway. Sales of their electrified PHEV models are on the rise and their current EVs, the XC40 Recharge and C40 are selling well or sold out. The next step involves introducing new EVs and the next in line will be a Concept Recharge-inspired crossover.
This new CUV will be sized somewhere between the existing XC60 and XC90 SUVs. We’re intrigued by the use of the “crossover” classification as this new vehicle may very well turn out to be more V60 or V90 Cross Country than a typical SUV. At least this is our hope.
The new model, internally code-named V546 according to Automotive News, should be assembled at Volvo’s North Charleston plant in South Carolina. Global production should number around the 100,000-mark of which 40% will be built in North America and the remaining 60% will come from China.
The V546 may become the third EV assembled in SC alongside the next-generation XC90, an electric version of the XC60, not to mention the upcoming Polestar 3.
