You can read the details in this article:<p><A HREF="http://autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060327/FREE/60326002/1041" TARGET="_blank">http://autoweek.com/apps/pbcs..../1041</A><p>The bottom line is that sales are hurting for lack of new products. Volvo chose to focus on the C70 and the S80 leaving the S60 platform (V70, XC70 & XC90) redesign for 08 or 09. Given that 66% of sales are of the S60 platform I believe this was a huge mistake.<p>The C70 has always been a low volume model and some of the S80 would-be-buyers could have been turned to a new (probably larger) S60. By 2008 the current S60 will look a decade old vs the competition (because it will almost be) and the leases will be $199.00<br>
