Volvo XC40 SUV will be introduced

Friday, September 27, 2019

The first fully electric car to be introduced by Volvo Cars, the Volvo XC40 SUV moves without a petrol or diesel engine in the engine compartment and with a battery on the floor.

Next month, with the launch of the fully electric Volvo XC40 SUV, Volvo Cars will not only introduce its first full electric car; Despite all the new challenges of not having an internal combustion engine, it will also launch one of the safest cars on the road.

Cars A Volvo should always be safe, motor says Malin Ekholm, Volvo Cars Safety Officer. “The fully electric XC40 will be one of the safest cars we've ever built.”

The company's safety engineers have completely redesigned and strengthened the front structure to meet the manufacturer's high safety standards, ensure that passengers are always safe, as in any Volvo, and at the same time deal with the absence of an engine, while setting the excellent safety standards of the original XC40.

Volvo Cars has developed a new and unique safety structure for both passengers and batteries in the XC40, in order to ensure the safety of the occupants and that the battery will not be damaged in the event of a collision. The battery is protected by a safety cage consisting of a reinforced aluminum frame, located in the middle of the car's body structure and forming a depression zone buried around the battery. Placing the battery on the base of the car lowers the center of gravity of the car, thus giving the car an advantage over rollover.

Meanwhile, the body structure of the car is not only strengthened at the front, but also at the rear. Here, the electric motor system is integrated into the body structure to ensure that the collision forces are distributed away from the cab and to ease the load on people in the car. The electric XC40 also features new technology for active safety systems. The XC40 is the first Volvo model with its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform developed by Zenuity, a Swedish manufacturer and Veoneer joint venture.

The new ADAS platform is a modern, scalable active security system consisting of a range of radar, cameras and ultrasonic sensors. Due to its scalable nature, ADAS can be easily developed and forms the basis for future autonomous driving technology. Volvo Cars will announce more details about the full electric XC40 in the coming weeks before its launch on October 16.
