Volvo recently joined the electric vehicle trend by introducing the polestar Brand. The new quieter concept car is said to be a product dedicated entirely to its client’s satisfaction. This way the brand will be able to penetrate the market and have a real potential for growth and the success of the concept.
According to Volvo, each product they make has a distinctive character. They have put much energy to come up with this new concept car. The car, which will use Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, will also borrow the 40-series nomenclature.
The 40.2 concept EV was revealed alongside the 40.1 concepts. The 40.1 has since entered production as the XC40. The 40.2 adopted a more sleek, four-door coupe design, but it otherwise tracked pretty close to its sibling when it came to size and design, including the use of plenty of rhombus-shaped details. The four-door concept hatch sat relatively high off the ground, inviting comparisons to crossovers.
The company revealed that the concept car will produce 600bhp and 1000Nm of torque. The concept car will be sold entirely online and will be limited to 500 models. Its engine allows the car to travel up to 150km (93miles) on pure electric power along the longest full electric range of any hybrid car on the market. Electric powertrain programs include a new compact Twin Engine plug-in hybrid, as well as a pure electric car, are the central focus to the CMA architecture
However, the car is a hybrid not all electric. The new EV will have a target range of about 310miles, considerably more than the concepts 217miles of driving range. Volvo will offer modular batteries with different ranges, along with different electric motors, to offer customers versions at different price points. The brand’s main goal is to address the broader population with cost-efficient solutions and then address a more premium segment with more motor power and longer range.
