Volvo has officially announced that the 2025 model year will be the final chapter for the beloved S60 sedan in the United States. This decision comes on the heels of the new EX90 starting production at Volvo’s South Carolina plant, requiring a shift in the company’s manufacturing priorities.

The S60, a hallmark of Volvo’s lineup for many years, will cease production at the Ridgeville, South Carolina facility by the end of June 2024.

The news was confirmed by Volvo in a statement to Road & Track, marking a poignant end to the sedan’s presence in the U.S. and other select markets. The Instagram account volvo.forlife first hinted at this change, igniting conversations among car enthusiasts and Volvo devotees.

The Ridgeville plant has been instrumental in producing the S60 while simultaneously gearing up for the new EX90 and Polestar 3. This strategic shift highlights Volvo’s commitment to its future electric vehicle lineup. The EX90 is already coming off the assembly lines, and the Polestar 3 is set to follow shortly.

Despite its impending discontinuation, the S60 has seen a remarkable surge in popularity, with sales up 255% this year—a testament to its lasting appeal.

The third-generation S60, launched in 2019, has been celebrated for its striking design, luxurious interior, and advanced technology. While some critics noted the braking system’s limitations in handling the sedan’s dynamic capabilities, particularly in the powerful T8 Inscription trim, the overall reception has been overwhelmingly positive.

Production of the S60 will continue at Volvo’s Chengdu, China plant, although these models will not be available in the U.S. This shift allows the South Carolina facility to fully focus on ramping up production of the EX90 and Polestar 3, aligning with Volvo’s forward-looking strategy.

For those eager to own a piece of this legacy, the S60 remains available in three trims, with prices ranging from $45,000 to $53,000 before options. Each trim is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder mild hybrid engine, delivering 247 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The sedan is available in both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations and is rated to tow up to 2,000 pounds.
