New Volvo V40 not coming to the United States

The new 2013 Volvo V40 is one sleek looking hatchback that we wish would come to the United States and it seems that wish will remain a wish. Volvo said it plans on selling a total of 90,000 units of the V40 on an annual basis with 85 percent of those going to the European markets.

Check out our original post on the 2013 Volvo V40.

Geno Effler, head of public relations for Volvo Cars of North America, has said “The V40 is not coming to the United States.”

What’s the reason? Apparently Volvo thinks we’re doing just fine with the Volvo C30 hatch.

Refresher: The 2013 Volvo V40 will be available with the company first diesel engine and a turbocharged T5 gasoline engine making 254-hp allowing it to go from 0 to 62 mph in 6.7 seconds. All models feature start-stop and braking energy regeneration, wether or not they have a manual or automatic gearbox.
