Volvo’s product road map includes five EVs and two PHEVs

Volvo recently hosted a accumulating in Miami for North and South American merchants. A couple of attendees, potentially very pleased of what Volvo had to say, shared some details on the proceedings with Automotive News. Volvo’s pledge to grow to be an all-EV brand name by 2030 will begin with five new electrical automobiles and two plug-in hybrids in the coming many years. Initially up is a whole-sized, three-row crossover mentioned to get its vibe from the Strategy Recharge. We determine this will be the very long-rumored and at times canceled XC100, but which is only an educated guess. We have observed no spy pictures of these types of a car or truck however, but AN reviews income aspirations for the complete-sizer are about 20,000 units for subsequent calendar year. If that’s the case, anything need to seem before long.

All over two yrs just after the possible XC100 arrives an EV codenamed V546 that AN reported on previously this month. Claimed to slot in in between the 185-inch-long XC60 and 195-inch-very long XC90, this tweener could be about the duration of the 189-inch Ford Edge. The resources assert it will experience on a new electric powered system, which could be the SPA2 bones that will guidance the coming electrical XC90 and that the Strategy Recharge electric crossover analyze (pictured) sits on. This one goes into output in the U.S., at Volvos’ Ridgeville, South Carolina plant, and in China. The approach is to offer 100,000 units annually.

At some place, the XC60 compact midsize crossover receives a battery-electric powered variant. The fourth EV will be a dinky silent runner that slides in under the XC40 Recharge. Referred to in the previous as the XC10, XC20 and XC30, past reportage statements this will journey on the Sustainable Practical experience Architecture (SEA) sourced from mum or dad corporation Geely. The fifth EV was only talked about as staying a sedan, which is a further mysterious entry.

The S90 and XC90 are acquiring new PHEV generations, the crossover continue to envisioned to inaugurate suitable names to the Swedish automaker’s lineup.

Volvo’s planning a employing spree for the South Carolina plant that only would make the S60 sedan at the minute. One particular of the new EV crossovers will commence down lines there later on this year, alongside with Polestar’s middleweight functionality crossover, then the likely XC100 (or what ever its good identify is) starts assembly there in 2023.
