Gallery: A Nerdy Look Back at 60 Years of Volvo Wagon Heritage



Volvo has been building wagons for 60 years, leading up to the debut of its all-new V90 station wagon.

Since the 2017 Volvo V90 was unveiled today, it’s fitting to take a look back at the Swedish automaker’s rich heritage in developing wagon models. It all started with the Volvo Duett that launched in 1953, which the company says is “the first car to meet the combined needs of drivers’ active leisure time and practical professional lives.”

Ever since that day, the company has sold a total of more than six-million wagons worldwide, which makes up around a third of the total number of vehicles Volvo has sold since it was founded in 1927.

That tradition will carry on with the new V90, built on the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) that underpins the XC90 and S90 sedan. For now, the Swedish automaker has only confirmed the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain for the new wagon, which makes a total system output of 410 horsepower and an all-electric range of around 31 miles. It is likely that the V90 will also be available with in a T5 trim with 250 hp and a T6 trim with 315 hp, just like the S90 sedan.

Best of all, if you’re fan of wagons in the U.S., then you will want to keep an eye on the new V90 since it will be heading stateside. Flip through the gallery above to check out Volvo’s past wagons.
