Volvo releases images of all-new electric XC40 to be unveiled next month

The Volvo XC40 is one of the automakers most popular selling vehicles, and now it is set to release an all-electric version of their compact SUV, a first for the Swedish automaker.

Continuing with its reputation for safety, Vovlo is promising to keep its focus on safety with the all-new XC40. Volvo said it’s redesigned and reinforced the entire front structure to compensate for the fact that there’s no engine there (somewhat of an obvious statement).

While Volvo did not release images of the final production car, it did tease some images of the battery pack and powertrain.

The all-new electric Volvo XC40 will be officially announced on October 16, 2019.

Here is a short video on the new vehicle.
