Volvo confirms its first electric car to arrive in 2019

Volvo has officially confirmed that its first standalone electric car will arrive in 2019.

The battery-electric hatchback will be a production version of the 40.2 concept revealed last year and will fall under the 40-badged family of models.

Volvo’s R&D boss, Henrik Green, has said they are aiming for a 499km range for the 40.2 concept-based production model.

Last year, Volvo was the first carmaker to announce plans to electrify its model line-up and said that from 2019 it would begin overhauling its range with electric, hybrid and mild-hybrid powertrains.
