Next Volvo XC90 to Be Offered Only With Four-Cylinder Powerplants
This is a rather drastic move by Volvo, but one which definitely shows that the Swedish manufacturer is doing more than just talking about becoming sustainable and environmentally neutral, unlike most other manufacturers which use ‘green’ purely as a marketing scheme to sell gas guzzlers.
The SPA platform will be used in a variety of new Volvo vehicles, and it will be specifically designed to accommodate hybrid drivetrains - a big advantage as it will never have to be reengineered for the job. This piece of news has made us very curious as to what Volvo has in store, but we have a sneaking suspicion that the upcoming XC90 will be a revolutionary vehicle in the segment, and the industry, and every bit as good as Volvo say it will be.
