Volvo's U.S. lineup is starting to get a little thin, so the company is reportedly considering plans to offer the V60 in America.

Speaking to Automotive News, Volvo's global head of marketing said a decision about the V60's U.S. availability will be made next quarter. If the model is approved, it could arrive on American shores within a year.

When Volvo introduced the V60, they decided not to bring it to America because of declining wagon sales. However, the company's decision to axe the C30, C70, S40, V50 and V70 leaves U.S. dealers with just a handful of models on their lots. As Volvo's U.S. dealer council chairman, Chip Ott, explained the limited lineup "makes it a little rough."
