Dutch publication AutoVisie chomped down on some Swedish meatballs to inform the world that Volvo’s planning to sell their next-generation V40 in the United States when it gets launched next year.

This is great news because Volvo’s been lacking in the compact and hatchback departments ever since the S40, V40, and C30 were retired from the lineup.

The new V40 is destined to get its backbone from Volvo’s latest compact C-Segment Modular Architecture or CMA, jointly developed with their relatively new Chinese partner, Geely, according to Volvo’s senior vice president, Alain Visser.

Visser also provided some details regarding the V40’s powertrains, which would range from the usual use of forced-induced four-bangers, with possible hybrid options in both gas and diesel form. Though focus is most likely going to be placed on the gasoline versions as diesel-electric hybrids only have the most potential in European markets.

When should we expect it? Sometime later next year as a 2017 model alongside a crossover variant to the V40, called the XC40. That’s scheduled for a reveal in 2018. What we care about is whether or not Volvo will produce Polestar versions of the V40.
