Volvo to reveal fully electric XC40 before year’s end

Volvo will unveil a fully electric version of its second-best-selling XC40 SUV before the end of 2019, the automaker recently revealed to Automotive News.

The new battery-driven variant will hit the roads in 2020, and will be joined by an XC40 T5 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid; and a T4 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid.

The Swedish brand offered no other details.

An all-electric XC40 would mark the first Volvo driven solely by battery power, and the second in the Volvo Group to the Polestar 2.

Both will be underpinned by the company’s Compact Modular Architecture, which was co-developed with sister brand Geely, of China.

Volvo wants fully electric cars to make up half of its sales globally by 2025.
