Volvo remains on track to introduce a new range of engines to its 2013 line-up.
The company will launch new downsized petrol and cleaner diesel engines, although remains unsure if its black-pump versions will make it to the US market.
Volvo CEO Stefan Jacoby said, “We are taking a deep look at whether we will introduce the diesels to the US.” But according to Jacoby, “We haven’t decided yet.”
The introduction of diesels could see company sales boosted, although, “We are at the bottom, but looking up,” he added.
Volvo has recently ungraded its engines for the company's 2011-model year range, including the new 2.0-litre, five-cylinder diesel engine that replaced the old 133bhp four-cylinder unit. A new 113bhp 1.6-litre diesel, badged D2, is also fitted to the C30, S40 and V50.Read about Volvo's revamped 2011 engine range
