Volvo 40.1 and 40.2 Concept - successor of V40 + S40 + XC40
|   Monday, May 23, 2016
After a teaser campaign via Snapchat - very 2.0! - Volvo presents the 40.1 and 40.2 concept models heralding the next generation V40. Very important given the production already allocated was at Volvo Cars Gent. Vree wise!

With 40.1 and 40.2 gives the Swedish carmaker us a glimpse at the (near) future of their compact model range, a strategy which we saw - and success was! - The new generation XC90 , S90 and V90 . The new generation Volvo 40s will thus return a small sedan and an adventure "compact SUV" entail a five-door hatchback (like the current V40) will normally also still worry.


Poor design and in terms of engines Volvo obviously has some freedom with its futuristic concept status, yet we expect that it (again) a lot will flow back to the final production models that are on the agenda for 2017. The production of small Sweden were already assigned to the Belgian production facility in Ghent, thus have a lot of compatriots until at least 2022 job security. The current production of the S60, V60 and XC60 will probably end with the arrival of the new 40's.

These newcomers will all use a brand CMA - Compact Modular Architecture - what platform production and expansion will allow efficient. The great '90s get a similar SPA - Scalable Product Architecture - platform and will no doubt pass on their techniques in terms of infotainment, data structure and safety systems to small brothers. Interesting footnote among the many words of praise in the long press release about the T5 Twin Engine Plug-in Hybrid. This green three-cylinder combines a gasoline engine with electric assistance and a seven-speed automatic transmission, this front-wheel drive while the T8 plug-in hybrid it does with all-wheel drive!

The successful renewal of the largest Volvo We are eagerly looking forward to how the Swedes will renew their smallest models. Besides another S40 and V40, we expect an XC40 that will be a logical response to the immense popularity of such cars.
