The XC60 is, above all, a perfect  Swedish expression — inspired by our rugged landscapes, profound winters, and soulful people.

“Vemod” is a word that doesn’t translate into most languages. It’s used to express a beautiful, melancholy longing that often produces great creative triumphs—a feeling only experienced during our classically long, deep, dark Swedish winters.

This is Sweden

  • Vast expansions of water, like the Gastrikland lakes, inspire a level of fluidity and calmness in our designs.
  • The dark, snow-covered winters reinforce our need to persist in safety advancements.
  • The tranquil valleys of Dalarna truly reflect what we love about Sweden—beauty, harmony, and natural living.
