Fully-electric Volvo XC40 to begin production in 2021

- XC40 to be the first all-electric vehicle for Volvo
- Likely to start production from 2021 onwards
- Claims to offer a driving range of 500kms
- Volvo plans to offer electric variant in every model

Swedish premium car manufacturer Volvo has announced its plans to introduce its first all-electric vehicle, the XC40 EV. Expected to go into production from 2021 onwards, it will be unveiled after Polestar reveals its second fully electric car in 2019. The electric version of the XC40 is expected to be manufactured at the company’s facility in South Carolina, USA. The same facility is also expected to be used for the production of the next-gen Volvo XC90.

The XC40 EV is likely to offer a driving range of 500 kilometres on a single charge. By 2025, the company aims to receive around 50 per cent of its sales from electric vehicles. Moreover, Volvo will offer an electric variant for its every model which could either be mild hybrid, battery-electric powertrain and a plug-in hybrid variant. Recently, the company had also announced its plans to use a minimum of 25 per cent recycled plastic in each of its cars from 2025 onwards.

Technological details for the vehicle will be known in the days to come.
