Volvo's next-generation powertrains

Volvo has unveiled its '40-series' concept models that showcase the next generation of powertrains, modular hybrid systems, platforms, and exterior design language for the Swedish manufacturer. This slick animation details how its Drive-E three-cylinder turbocharged units form an integral part of the new car

 

Volvo Cars, has unveiled two new concept cars that move the Swedish brand in 'an audacious new direction and mark the official launch of its global small-car strategy'.

The 40 series concept models demonstrate for the first time how Volvo plans to expand into the premium small car market. The new concept cars will be the first built around Volvo’s new Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), which has been specially created for smaller cars and will be help spawn a pure-battery electric vehicle as well as Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain variants. This is in line with the company’s commitment to the electrification of its entire portfolio, and plans to have sold a total of up to one million electrified cars by 2025 globally.

“Each member of our product family has its own distinct character, just like the members of a real family. CMA has helped us to capture something special, something youthful in our new concept cars. They have an energy, a disruptive and engaging urban character that makes them stand out among the crowd. This is the flavour of small Volvos to come,” said Thomas Ingenlath, senior Vice President, design, at Volvo Car Group.
