The current Volvo C40.

In the U.S., Volvo currently offers two sedans, the S60 and S90, and four SUVs, the XC90, XC60, XC40, and C40. All except the C40 are available in a couple of different configurations, from gas to hybrid to all electric. The C40 is only offered as a full EV, to be joined in 2024 by the EX90, an all-electric three-row SUV. Add to that list, possibly: a C60, which might be a new electric SUV, if trademark documents are any indication.

Volvo applied for a U.S. trademark on the C60 model name on December 14; you can read the application here. It names a broad swath of things C40 could be used for, including, of course, “automobiles,” which would make sense given that Volvo has said it wants to go all-electric by 2030 and introduce a lot of new EVs before then. A new C60 would presumably replace or complement the XC60 in Volvo’s lineup, but, as Autoblog reports, Volvo has had its hands on and off of “C60" for a couple of decades.
