GOTHENBURG: Volvo says its entire "90" and "60" lineups, along with the XC40, are now available as mild hybrids, which come with a 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain.

The announcement complemented the launch of refreshed S90, V90, and V90 Cross Country models.

As for the updated 90 Series sedan and Cross Country estate models, the exteriors have been gently refreshed with new fog lights, a redesigned spoiler, a lower front bumper, and new rear light signature.


On the inside, some trims have been outfitted with a Bowers and Wilkins sound system and Advanced Air Cleaner; most variants also come with wireless charging for smartphones.

Thanks to the expansion of the company's mild hybrid powertrain system to all 60 and 90 Series models as well as to the XC40 compact SUV, these models can now "offer drivers up to 15 per cent fuel savings and emission reductions in real world driving".

While the official launch date for the models has not yet been disclosed, they're expected to hit showrooms later this year with a 2021 model year designation.
