Volvo debuts XC40 Inscription and V60 at 2018 New York Auto Show

For the 2018 New York Auto Show, Volvo is expected to introduce a new model for us. In fact, they are introducing two models, namely the range topping Inscription trim of the 2019 XC40 and the 2019 V60.

Of course, to makes the XC40 Inscription stand out, it has been given features that can’t be found in other cars. The company’s image has elements like leather upholstery with nicely bolstered seats upfront. The panels and pillars then got some black trim, contrasted by gray wood trim, while the infotainment system is then covered in metal. It sits on a set of wheels with five sets of dual spokes. The Swedish automaker also says that the Inscription has a long list of standard equipment that is uncommon in the compact premium SUV market.

Though Volvo does not specify, the XC40 Inscription will likely use a 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower (185 kilowatts) and 258 pound feet (350 Newton metres) of torque. This is coupled to an eight speed automatic that sends power to the all wheel drive system. This is the same mill that was installed in the XC40 in the United States when it was first launched.

2018 Volvo XC40 production begins in Belgium

The other day, it was confirmed that Volvo will finally bring the XC40 to US soil, where it will first make an appearance at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Now, the small crossover will finally hit production phase at the Swedish company’s Ghent plant in Belgium. Having said that, we can expect to see the first batch of production models roll off the production line and head off to their respective owners sometime next year.

This early, the automaker has already received 13,000 orders, so they will definitely be busy producing enough examples of the XC40 in the next couple of months. To be more specific, customers should be able to receive their vehicles early next year, according to Volvo.

Volvo Cars chief executive and president Hakan Samuelsson said that the beginning of the XC40’s production is a special day for both Ghent and Volvo, and this particular model represents a bright future for the aforementioned companies.

Volvo XC40 will make its debut in the United States at 2017 LA Auto Show

While the Volvo XC40 isn’t new anymore to European buyers, it’s only now that the Swedish brand’s smallest SUV will be brought to the United States. The Volvo XC40 SUV will make its American debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, together with what the company refers to as a new “subscription-based” car buying experience.

To enlighten you guys, the program called “Care by Volvo” is a car-buying service that will make purchasing a car as simple as owning a cell phone. Hakan Samuelson (Volvo CEO) and Anders Gustafsson (Volvo President) are both scheduled to talk about this new system on November 29 in the city of angels, so people would have a clearer understanding of it. Of course, they will show off the subscription service together with the new XC40 for the first time in North America.

In a recent interview with Gustafsson, he said that California is the place where technology cultures and transportation meet. He then added that the Los Angeles Auto Show will be the ideal place for them to introduce something like this, where both worlds are involved. The president also gave us a tidbit about the purpose of this new service, explaining that Care by Volvo, alongside the new SUV, will make life less complicated for their customers.
