Speaking exclusively to bloggers at the launch of the XC60, Volvo India's Managing Director Paul De Voijs said Volvo has ruled out both the XC70 and S40 for India.

The S40 is the smaller of the two sedans Volvo sells globally, while the XC70 is a rugged station wagon with off-road capabilities.

De Voijs said S40 lacked adequate leg space at the rear, a crucial requirement for the rear-seat loving Indian luxury car buyer. There was no specific reason cited for the axing of the XC70, but he insisted there was no market for the station wagon in India.
