Preparing an SUV-Lotus based on the platform from the Volvo XC60/XC90, is there any chance to use the Volvo engine on this SUV? There is a real chance that it happens because it will meet and respect the deadline. 

However, there is another factor cannot be ignored is: how could it affect the Lotus on the next-generation Evora, for example? Because Toyota and Lotus are sharing knowledge since 1982, and nowadays, the English team has been using the V6-engine from a Toyota Camry.

Observation: Volvo in partnership with the Yamaha, use to have an agreement to assembly the V8 engine. But it came to an end when the Swedish company was bought by Geely in 2010.
