Earlier this week, Volvo announced that it’s adding a unique Black Edition styling choice to its top-rated S60 sedan. The stylish Black Edition introduces an updated version of the sporty look for the Volvo S60 with pristine black accents and badging. Coming to select retailers in the U.S. this spring, the S60 Black Edition arrives in limited quantities, with fewer than 450 models being produced for model year 2022.


The S60’s Black Edition styling is offered on the plug-in hybrid S60 Recharge and also for the hybrid S60 Momentum and R-Design trims. Bolstering the great S60 even further, the Black Edition comes with exclusive high gloss black 19-inch wheels and standard metallic paint.


The front of the special edition includes high gloss black on the grille, Volvo badge, and grille slash. With a starting MSRP under $40,000, the S60 Black edition is offered in just two colors. For a stealthier look, Onyx Black Metallic makes the special high gloss black accents blend in. And for a bolder, high contrast look, Crystal White Metallic makes them stand out. The Black Edition is being built in the US at the Volvo Cars center in Ridgeville, SC plant, and it was created specifically for the US market at the company’s California studio.


The timeline was accelerated considerably when Volvo executives visited the US and saw the car in person in November 2021. Having “fallen in love” with the design, the S60 Black Edition was approved for production on the spot, skipping the normal design approval process to get it in the hands of customers faster.


“The design of the S60 Black Edition evokes a passionate response across the company,” said Eric Beak, head of design for Volvo Car USA. “We’re very proud that the Black Edition has been designed here in the US and will be built by our US team in South Carolina.”
