First introduce in 2006, the current C30 was Volvo’s first response for the premium compact segment. Since then, the car ensured the Swedish manufacturer presence in the segment, but wasn’t a hit, often overtaken by Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series.
Updated in 2010, Volvo C30 is preparing to exit the scene. It’s place was already taken by the current V40, Volvo’s proposition for the C-segment.
In C30’s last press release, Volvo is advising its fans to buy the last edition of the car, bespoked as a tribute to the vintage 1800ES.
"Launched as a model year 2008, the Volvo C30 is a dynamic, fun-to-drive car that helped us connect with enthusiasts and also fulfilled its purpose in supporting Volvo as a luxury brand with performance credentials. Looking ahead, however, we have made the decision to discontinue C30 production to better position Volvo for the future and the next stages of our model portfolio. We encourage C30 fans to consider the new Limited Edition model currently available, of which only 250 specially numbered cars will be built. With a design that pays homage to the vintage 1800ES, we expect both collectors and enthusiasts to embrace it and carry on the C30 legacy."
