Volvo has said it would only make fully electric or hybrid cars from 2019 onwards and it recently announced that the the XC40 will be the first full electric model to hit the showrooms. Details are limited at this stage but here is what we do know.
Being a Volvo safety is first and foremost and the 2019 XC40 SUV, sets a new benchmarks for design, technology and safety in the compact SUV market. Award winning technology from the 90 and 60 series cars are standard in the XC40, including safety innovations rarely offered among competitors. The Volvo XC40 will be among the safest, well-equipped compact SUVs available.
“The XC40 is our first entry in the small SUV segment, broadening the appeal of the Volvo brand and moving it in a new direction,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive. “It represents a fresh, creative and distinctive new member of the Volvo line-up.”
The XC40’s bold exterior look is a strong, structured profile for a youthful expression. Large wheels, wheel arches and an 8.3” ride height provide a true SUV feeling.
