On the 16th of October Volvo will be revealing it’s electric vehicle which is a fully electric vehicle and a version of the XC40 SUV.
Volvo wants this vehicle to as safe as possible which had prompted the company to make series of changes to the e-model just to ensure that it had the strength considering the removal of the combustion engine.
Parts of the redesign includes a closed off grilled as well as a safety cage just around the battery which is also aimed to keep both the battery and even passengers safe from hazards.
The XC40 electric SUV is based on Volvo’s CMA (compact modular architecture), which was designed to incorporate electric vehicles from its inception. That sees the battery in the floor of the car (like most others) and freeing up space in other areas.
Meanwhile there is a huge 30 Litres of storage in the front of the car which also houses the sensors for the driver assistance systems this car will offer.
The Volvo XC40 will be the newest in the SUV market now even though the industry is getting populated bit by bit with other car makers like Kia already introduced the Kia Soul, Hyundai’s Kona Electric, Jaguar’s i-Pace and even Audi’s E-Tron and of course the popular Tesla Model X.
Volvo says that this electric model hangs on to many of the things that have made the XC40 one its best-selling models, while also incorporating a new driver interface packed with all the information that an EV driver needs.
But as for design, there possibly won’t really some alien designs here but it’s definitely going to look great enough and attractive. Another thing to take note of is the price point as well as it’s performances which rumor suggests cold be a dual motor setup peaking around 250 miles of range.
