After plenty of news about Volvo debuting their first electric car in 2019, it’s finally out that the first EV will be a hatchback. From reports, it seems that the car will be based on the Concept 40.2 which Volvo had shown earlier.
The car, which will use Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, will also borrow the 40-series nomenclature. The car is expected to have a range of almost 500km which should take care of long commutes. Volvo will offer modular batteries with different ranges, along with different electric motors, to offer customers versions at different price points.
Post the hatchback, the XC40 could be next in line to get electrified.
