Two-Pronged Electric Approach From Volvo

Volvo wants to come up with 2 battery sizes in fully-electric variants of the XC40 and coming-soon V40 hatch.

He last hatch will ride on the same CMA as the XC40 powered by a line of V3 and V4 motors, a plug-in hybrid powerplant and a fully-electric mill.

The boss at Volvo R&D says that in physical terms they will have to fit the battery in the floor. However, CMA provides them with a good bandwidth.

There will be at least 2 different battery sizes offered for every EV.

The standard version will be more cost-efficient, according to the boss. It will have a slightly limited range. Meanwhile a more costly option will have more range and power.
