Here is some P1 info that has been floating out there and confirmed. Some is common knowledge and some is freash, this waill vary from person to person. And of course, all is subject to change...Upcoming P1 Info:

S40 (Y276) Due mid summer 03, AWD optional

V50 (Y280) 5 door wagon ½ size bigger that the S40, AWD optional. Pictures have been posted of this already. Due fall 03

XC50 Same basic body as the V50 with the usual XC treatments, larger tires, cladding, and std. AWD. Due Fall 03

C50 (Y281) 4 seat convertible. Replaces current C70, but smaller. Not decided if soft-top conv. Or retractable hardtop ala SLK. Due late 04.

V30 (Y279) 3 door hatchback, styled from the SCC and reminiscent of the old P1800. Due Early 05

XC30 based off above, was originally AAR (all-activity-roadster), to compete against the Audi Steppenwolf.

Small SUV (Y278) Co-designed with LandRover (L317), based on the next generation Freelander. Built on the same assembly line, but to be recognized as a true Volvo. Due 05.

Hey Phil, what's your source. I just read something similar in CAR magazine (best automobile print magazine in the world as far as I can tell).
