2018 Volvo XC40

Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, has expanded its line-up of SUVs with the launch of its new 2018 Volvo XC40 small premium SUV in Milan, Italy.

At exactly the same time as it introduces the XC40, Volvo Cars also reinvents the traditional style of car ownership with its new ‘Care by Volvo’ subscription service. Care by Volvo, first on the XC40 from launch, makes having a car as transparent, easy and straight forward as having a phone. A monthly flat-fee subscription means down payments, price negotiations and local price differences participate in the past.

XC40 drivers may also be the first Volvo clients who can share their car with relatives and buddies via Volvo on Call with a fresh digital key technology. Car sharing comes as standard for Care by Volvo customers.

The arrival of the XC40 means that for the first time in its history, Volvo Cars has three new, globally available SUVs in what’s the fastest growing segment of the automotive market, paving just how for further growth with regards to sales and profitability.

The brand new XC40 may be the first model on Volvo Cars’ new modular vehicle architecture (CMA), which will underpin all other upcoming cars in the 40 Series including fully electrified vehicles. Co-developed within Geely, CMA supplies the company with the necessary economies of scale for this segment.

“The XC40 is our first entry in the tiny SUV segment, broadening the appeal of the Volvo brand and moving it in a new direction, ” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive.

“It represents a brand new, creative and distinctive participant of the Volvo line-up. So it only feels natural to reveal the XC40 here in Milan, a buzzing European hotspot for fashion, art, design and life style. ”

With regards to technology, the XC40 brings the award-winning safety, connectivity and infotainment technologies known from the brand new 90- and 60 Series cars to the small SUV segment. Like its larger siblings, the XC40 highlights the transformational effect of these new, in-house developed technologies on brand and profitability.

 

These technologies make the XC40 among the best-equipped small premium SUVs on the market. Safety and driver assistance features on the XC40 include Volvo Cars’ Pilot Assist system, City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic alert with brake support and the 360° Camera that helps drivers manoeuvre their car into tight parking spaces.

The XC40 also offers a radically new approach to storage inside the car. Ingenious home design provides XC40 drivers with, among other activities, more functional storage space in the doors and beneath the seats, a particular space for phones including inductive charging, a fold-out hook for small bags and a removable waste bin in the tunnel console.

From start of production, the XC40 will be available with a D4 diesel or a T5 petrol four-cylinder Drive-E powertrain. Further powertrain options, including a hybridised as well as a pure electric version, will be added later. The XC40 will also be the first Volvo model to be available with Volvo Cars’ new 3-cylinder engine.

Production of the newest XC40 starts in Volvo Cars’ plant in Ghent, Belgium in November, while order books and the Care by Volvo subscription package are open for customers now.
