2025 Volvo XC60 Review

Volvo will transition to an electric lineup by 2030, and the successor of the all-electric XC60 is the next step in that direction. The battery cells for the crossover EV were developed in a joint venture between Northvolt and Volvo. Volvo will begin supplying battery cells to Northvolt Ett in Sweden in 2024. This means that production of the new XC60 is also expected to begin in 2024.

Volvo will provide 15-gigawatt hours worth of battery cells at its existing plant, while the new gigafactory (location to be announced) will have an annual capacity of up to 50GWh and will use only 100 percent clean electricity. Hakan Samuelsson, chief executive of the Volvo Car Group said: “By working together with Northvolt, we will ensure a better quality and more sustainable battery supply for our pure-electric cars.”

Volvo claims that the proximity of the Northvolt facility to its European plants helps reduce the environmental impact of battery production. Volvo had stated that half of their sales by 2025 would be from all-electric vehicles, with the remaining being petrol-electric hybrids.

Polestar has set itself a challenging goal. It wants to create a vehicle that is truly climate neutral by 2030. In 2022, the 50/50 joint venture between Volvo and Northvolt will be launched with the opening of a Swedish R&D center. The company will unveil more details about its roadmap during the Volvo Cars Tech Moment, which takes place on June 30th, 2021. Northvolt has received investments from companies like BMW and Volkswagen Group. Volvo has announced that the next generation XC60 will not have any internal combustion engines.


Volvo Cars will have a second generation EV that includes the successor electric to the Volvo XC60 as well as the electric alternative XC90. They will be equipped with better lithium-ion batteries than the XC40 or C40 recharge. The company plans to develop battery cells with Northvolt that have a 50% greater energy density. Volvo Cars want to launch a third-generation electric car by the middle of this decade and reduce charging times almost in half.

Volvo Cars announced in March 2021 that they plan to have seven all-electric cars by the middle decade and to eliminate combustion engines by the end. This announcement follows the introduction of the all-electric Volvo C40. One of the seven EVs is the successor to Volvo XC60. Volvo Cars’ parent company Volvo Car Group confirmed in a June 21, 2021 press release that the electric successor of the Volvo XC60 will be released.

The company stated that it wanted to form a joint venture with the leading Swedish battery manufacturer Northvolt to develop and produce batteries for next-generation Volvo and Polestar electric vehicles. In the announcement, the company also stated that the electric successor of the Volvo XC60 will be the first model featuring a battery developed by the joint venture. Volvo Car Group aims to reach a production capacity of 50 GWh per year in Europe through a joint venture by 2026.

Jim Rowan, President and CEO at Volvo Cars confirmed the existence of a successor electric to the XC60 product line on July 20, 2022. Volvo plans to have EVs make up half of its total sales by 2022. The electric successor XC60, and the electric successor XC90 are key components in this plan. Volvo Car Group announced in June 2021 that its pure-electric counterpart to the XC60 will debut under a completely different name. This is because Tesla, which has a Model X on the way (previewed with the Volvo Recharge Concept), chose not to call the XC90 EV.


The electric successor of the Volvo XC60 may feature a design that is inspired by the Volvo Refill Concept, whose production version will debut during Q4 2022. This model may be lower, and look more SUV-like than the XC60.

The XC60 Electric alternative will be based on the new SPA2 Scalable Platform Architecture currently in development. The SPA2 has several advantages over the SPA1. Volvo, for instance, will produce a floor assembly that is flat like a skateboard and will include provisions for mounting a flat motor and battery. For the front and rear.

The current XC60 will continue to be produced well into the second decade of this century, with periodic updates and a partially electric variant. Volvo will continue to produce the XC60 Hybrid as the demand for the Refill version is growing every year, and the combustion variant’s elimination will be gradual.


Henrik Green, Head of Global Advanced Technology & Sustainability at Volvo Cars, has said that the XC60 successor could have a dual motor powertrain with a system power of up to 400 kW (or 536 hp). Green told Recharge, in December 2021, that the next generation Volvo EV will arrive this year (2022). “It will receive 400 kW (536 hp)”

Lutz Stiegler, Solution Manager Electric Propulsion Volvo Cars, confirmed that at the Volvo Cars Tech Moment held in June 2021 the second generation Volvo EV would have a charge power of more than 200 kW. Stiegler stated that the company will be able to charge at these levels due to the reduced internal resistance, the improved thermal management, and the custom-designed high-voltage systems. The charging station will be able to charge faster.

2025 Volvo XC60 Release Date & Price

Volvo could continue to sell its current XC60 for several more years alongside its successor, particularly in markets with low EV sales. Volvo plans to do the same thing with the current XC90, which will continue to be sold for a while after its successor is released. The XC60 will be available for the 2018 model and will receive a minor update in 2022. Volvo achieved 41,582 US sales in 2021. This is the best record ever for the Volvo nameplate.
