Volvo's product plans are uncertain. Many of its vehicles are aging and rely heavily on Ford technology. But last year Ford Motor Co. placed a "For Sale" sign on the Swedish brand.
Still, there are glimmers of hope. The 10-year-old S60 sedan will be redesigned next year, and a plug-in hybrid is on the horizon.
Here are Volvo's product plans.
Hybrid: Volvo is co-developing a plug-in hybrid with Vattenfall AB, of Stockholm, one of Europe's major power companies.
The powertrain will be connected to a diesel engine. The vehicle will run for about 60 miles on lithium ion batteries. Production is scheduled to begin in 2012, and no decision has been made about U.S. sales.
"At the moment, I cannot find a business case that makes sense, and I cannot afford to be a big risk-taker now" in the United States, Volvo CEO Stephen Odell said last month at the Frankfurt auto show.
C30: A freshened version of the compact hatchback debuted in Frankfurt. U.S. sales begin in January.
In Frankfurt, Volvo also unveiled a C30 concept with an electric powertrain. The concept, which uses lithium ion batteries, has a 93-mile range. The top speed is limited to 80 mph. Volvo says the concept can accelerate to 60 mph in less than 11 seconds. The company has not said whether the vehicle will be produced.
V30: The five-door version of the C30 is expected to debut in 2011 in Europe, but it is unclear whether the car will be sold here.
S40: The small sedan likely will be dropped after the 2011 model year.
S60: The redesigned sedan will debut in 2010, unveiling the new look of Volvo. The S60 is expected to adopt styling cues first seen on the S60 concept, unveiled at the Detroit show last January. The four-door design study features a coupelike roofline and lacks a B-pillar.
V50: The compact wagon is likely to be dropped in the United States.
V60: The redesigned V60 wagon goes on sale in 2011, replacing the V50. The V60 will adopt the S60's styling cues.
XC60: Volvo's newest crossover debuted this year. The XC60 is the first Volvo to offer the company's new safety system, called City Safety. The system uses sensors in the front of the vehicle to determine whether a crash is imminent. If necessary, it applies the brakes to stop the vehicle. The system works at speeds up to 19 mph.
C70: The hardtop convertible gets a freshening this year. The car debuted in Frankfurt with a new front end inspired by the S60 concept.
V70: No major changes are expected.
XC70: No major changes are expected.
S80: No major changes are expected.
XC90: A redesign has been delayed until 2012.
