Volvo has announced that they will be leaving behind this year's E85 powered Volvo S60 in favor of the more agile and smaller bioethanol C30 for next season's Swedish Touring Car Championship. Aside from the performance benefits, Derek Crabb, head of Powertrain and Engine at Volvo Cars states, "Our decision to continue racing is based on the positive attention and the good results that the recently concluded STCC season has meant for Volvo's brand." The road going C30 with its Flexifuel model and upcoming 1.6D Efficiency, which has an average fuel consumption of 4.5L/100km (62 mpg-imperial) and CO2 emissions under 120 grams per kilometre, is more synonymous with Volvo's available environmental technology and that's what Volvo wants to emphasize. To be developed by long time STCC partner Polestar Racing, Volvo has committed to a 3 year development program of the C30. further details of it's construction will be announced at a later time.
