Volvo boss announces the presentation of a new electric model for March 2021.

After the XC40 Recharge, a “zero emission” variant of its smallest SUV, Volvo is preparing, not surprisingly, a second 100% electric model. Hakan Samuelsson, CEO of the Swedish producer, uncovered to Automotive News Europe that it will be formally introduced on March 2, 2021.
Rather stingy with information, the manager only added that the car in question would take up the platform of the XC40 and would display a more streamlined silhouette than this one. It could therefore be a new “coupe” SUV, but other options are still possible.

Sedan and station wagon considered

The upcoming electric Volvo could replace the V40 and therefore have a design similar to the Polestar 2 and be derived from the 40.2 concept of 2016.

During the same interview, Samuelsson also announced that Volvo is working on an electric sedan and station wagon in order to offer an electric model in each of the segments in which it is present. According to him, SUVs will soon account for 75% of sales but there will still be a small place for more traditional body styles.

An XC20 in the box

The executive also confirmed that Volvo is developing a smaller electric SUV than the XC40 for the future on a new modular platform designed with its Chinese parent company Geely. This model could be named the XC20, which remains to be confirmed.
