The Volvo S60 CC arrived in North America in August and generated 50 U.S. sales. That figure fell to only 29 units in September 2015 as Volvo managed to push 1265 copies of the regular S60 sedan.
Volvo also sold 134 copies of the V60 Cross Country, essentially an S60 CC wagon.
As Volvo looked for answers to its gradual U.S. decline, they surely had to know – as we know – that the S60 Cross Country was not going to be that car. Just as Subaru’s Outback SUS was a failed experiment, combining a swoopy sedan bodystyle with SUVesque ride height in a Swedish package isn’t going to propel Volvo back to the days of 100K+ annual U.S. sales, a feat last accomplished in 2007.

The second-generation XC90 is the far likelier answer to Volvo’s troubles. In September, Volvo sold 1182 XC90s, equal to 21% of the brand’s total volume.
The S60 CC could become more readily available. Volvo could, perhaps, sell more than 100 copies per month. In September, however, it was the 15th worst-selling vehicle in America in terms of outright volume, joining a large group of supercars and discontinued models.
