Wagons are the perfect all-in-one solution for having practicality and form at the exact same time. While Volvo has a long history with these types of cars, it knows that the average buyer isn't quite aware of wagons, and as a result its lineup has become more focused on crossovers. While the brand's V90 and V60 wagons have been stripped down to just one or two trim levels, mainly the SUV-like Cross Country models, Volvo isn't giving up on wagons just yet.



In an interview with WhichCar, company exec Warren Davidson hinted at the possibility of an electric wagon from the Swedish brand. "Volvo is not a company that disregards it heritage," he said. "SUVs are extremely important to us, but they’re not the only part of what we do. We’ve done beautiful wagons for years."


An all-electric wagon from Volvo could become a possiblility thanks to the flexible EV architectures from parent company Geely. While a new battery-powered wagon wasn't exactly confirmed by the company, there were still strong indicators that something is in the works, as Warren added, "Without being specific about future products, I’m really excited."


Volvo's head of strategy Erik Severinson went on to repeat Warren's thoughts about wagons. "We are famous for our wagons, but it’s mainly Europe that buys them," he admitted. Severinson continued that even though the competition has shied away from the wagon industry in recent years, Volvo still sees a demand for them.


If an all-electric wagon from Volvo does become a reality, there will still be plenty of competition, at least in its home market. Audi is expected to launch the A6 e-tron Avant alongside its electric sedan counterpart, and it's highly likely that BMW's i5 will spawn a wagon variant in the future. For now, Volvo is getting ready to release its latest electric crossover, the small EX30, which will start at just over $35,000.
