The P1 S40 was released in the middle of the 2004 model year which caused some issues with vehicle registrations in states.  Some vehicle registrations will show it as a 2004.5 or 2004½ but due to computer system limitations in some localities, they may be registered as 2004 or 2005 model year vehicles.

If you have a 2004 S40 and are having trouble figuring out whether it is a NedCar or a P1 based model then look further down this page for help (pictures, etc.)

If you have a 2004 S40 and aren't sure which platform you have:

All USA NedCar S40 models have a 4 cylinder engine.

All USA P1 S40 models have a 5 cylinder engine. 

Model information is based on the USA vehicle market. Other model variations may exist outside the USA.
