Volvo plans 560 mile EVs from mid-decade: Electric roadmap

Volvo expects its electric vehicles to get close to double the range with its third-generation 800V battery architecture, though that’s unlikely to arrive until the middle of the decade the automaker says. Before that, Volvo plans to transition to its second-gen EV platform, beginning with the new Volvo XC90 SUV which is expected to debut in 2022 along with a bevy of new electric and autonomous features.

The new XC90 – which will have a name, rather than being the new “XC90,” Volvo teased today – will be the first of the Swedish automaker’s vehicles to use the new SPA2 platform.
