Another wagon — or two — bites the dust.
Volvo, the Swedish brand synonymous with the station wagon, is trimming its U.S lineup of those vehicles — a casualty of America's indifference to the body style.
Starting next year, Volvo will quit selling the standard gasoline-powered V60 compact and V90 large wagons.
Volvo sold a mere 366 V60s in the first half of the year, down 11 percent from a year earlier. Meanwhile, just 153 V90s were delivered in the first six months of 2021, although that was nearly twice as many as a year earlier.
Both models are available via special order only, which made keeping them in the portfolio even harder to justify.
