The first will be the production of semi-copy cross the next XC40, while the second concept will be the electric product of the second generation V40 .
concepts of the two strings of 40, with the Swedish minimalism, along with also 40.1 along with also 40.2. 40.1 will be a thinly disguised look at what the next XC40 will look like – will be scheduled to be the first member of the family of 40 entered. The 40.2 will be a battery electric product of the V40 which will have up to 217-mile range.
along with also in which will build all of the fresh agreement along with also modular architecture Volvo, which will support all of the company’s products for modest along with also those that has a Chinese company parent, Geely.
, he said, speaking at the event, Peter Mertens, Volvo’s R & Coach D British journalists in which we have to look at CMA as a smaller platform brother big SPA upon which the family 0 Volvo series, along with also says in which will provide a similar degree of “plug along with also play “flexibility.
“The architecture will be as modular as SPA”, he told us in which “we have a very successful plan for how to do in which, along with also in which has been poured into the Capital Market Authority. You could almost say in which’s the younger brother’s SPA when in which comes to flexibility along with also atypical “.

“in which’s an innovative along with also very effective group, which will be a very effective solution in terms of cost towards high performance figures CO2 will be very low,” he told us, “The planning will be the most effective way when in which comes to friction losses, in which resolved packing smart – others have developed the motor between the transmission along with also the engine, which will be not as cost-effective, along with also ineffective as will be the case when in which comes to friction losses “
we have. Even fewer details about the EV 40.2 before the official presentation, although Mertens has left slip in which in which will have a range of about 350km, or 217 miles, along with also will come behind the largest product EV-based SPA, which we are told to expect to see in 2019 in which could have a group of about 300 miles.
