Zero-Emission Volvo XC40 Could Have A Range Of 500Km

Volvo officially confirmed the arrival of the fully electric XC40 in the near future, but that’s pretty much everything we’ve got on it so far.

However, if we were to give credit to a report published by Autocar, then it should arrive with a total driving range of around 500km (310 miles), in between charges.

It looks like the XC40 won’t be the Swedish brand’s first electric vehicle, as this role is apparently reserved for a hatchback, which was previewed by the 40.2 Concept in 2016. The two cars are expected to share the same CMA platform, powertrain, and batteries, and to have an identical range.

If everything goes as planned, then the hatch might arrive as early as next year, according to a previous report, around the same time with the hybrid version of the XC40, with the full EV shortly following them.

Under Geely’s ownership, the automaker’s electric push is also believed to include the Polestar 2, a zero-emission midsize saloon that could arrive in late 2019. One year later, the Volvo’s electrified performance brand is also expected to launch a crossover, probably called the Polestar 3.

In the meantime, the current Volvo XC40 is officially the company’s first ever model to feature a three-cylinder engine. Baptized the T3, it uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter direct-injected petrol unit, and it can already be ordered in the United Kingdom.
