  • Fully electric Volvo XC40

    Sometimes less is really more: Volvo's first all-electric model, the Volvo XC40 Electric Drive (BEV), proves that the Swedish premium brand's vehicles can be made even better by omitting certain things. The rise of electric cars is the biggest change in the history of the automobile. For the first time in over a century, vehicles move without a gasoline or diesel engine working in the engine compartment; instead there is a battery in the vehicle floor. This essentially changes the car. Also for tailpipes or a large radiator grille, there is no need. And because the internal combustion engine is eliminated, additional storage space is created under the front hood.

With the introduction of the forthcoming fully electric Volvo XC40 SUV next month, Volvo Cars is not just launching its first fully electric car – in true Volvo tradition, it is also introducing one of the safest cars on the road, despite a fresh set of challenges presented by the absence of an internal combustion engine. “Regardless of what drives a car forward, be it an electric machine or combustion engine, a Volvo must be safe,” says Malin Ekholm, head of safety at Volvo Cars. “The fully electric XC40 will be one of the safest cars we have ever built.” While building on the excellent safety standards of the original XC40, Volvo Cars safety engineers had to completely redesign and reinforce the frontal structure to deal with the absence of an engine, meet Volvo Cars’ high safety requirements and help keep occupants as safe as in any other Volvo.

  • Volvo Introduces Car Without Pedals Or A Steering Wheel

    According to Digital Trends, Volvo's revolutionary 360c concept car embodies the big changes taking place in the auto industry. They recently revealed the new 360c concept at Volvo’s headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden. The car is electric and fully autonomous, but likely won’t ever reach mass production. Digital Trends explains, "Volvo won’t replace the XC40 with a box on wheels that turns the driver into a passenger. The concept merely explores what could be possible in a few years’ time if technology advances at the rate decision-makers predict it will." Volvo wants people to imagine the pedal and steering wheel free car as something that could be part of a commute. Digital Trends adds, "Imagine flying from Frankfurt to New York City and hopping in a Delta-operated, Volvo-built 360c-like shuttle from JFK to Philadelphia. Or, with the right infrastructure, taking one overnight from Berlin to Copenhagen." There are two different interior concepts for the car. One includes a lounge with a table and four seats. Another seating setup includes "a private pod with a single seat that reclines into a bed for full luxury on longer trips."
