Volvo plans two battery options for electric-powered versions of its upcoming vehicles based on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform. That is at least, what development manager Henrik Green has just stated – however, without naming battery capacity figures.
Volvo’s first models based on the CMA architecture will be the XC40 and the V40. In September, the Swedish carmaker officially presented its compact SUV XC40, but did not announce the schedule for launching the model’s hybrid or all-electric version.
Anyway, first of all, the all-electric Polestar 2 will hit the roads in the second half of 2019, according to “Auto Express.” In fact, it is going to be the first fully electric product based on the Compact Modular Architecture.
