Despite the American introduction of diesel engines from most major European brands, Volvo remains non-committal to the prospect of diesel powertrains in America.

Volvo offers a broad range of diesels in Europe and other markets, but Stefan Jacoby, CEO of Volvo, offered little, stating “We are taking a deep look at whether we will introduce the diesels to the US.”

Volvo will also be downsizing their engines starting in 2013, following a recent trend embraced by manufacturers of all stripes. The first engine, dubbed the D2, will be a 1.6L four-cylinder diesel, to be fitted to the C30, S40 and V50 wagon – though that’s one engine we can’t ever see making it to our shores.
