AutoComplete: Volvo's XC40 will rock down to Electric Avenue in 2019
Here's what making news on Road Show.
We like Volvo's XC40 crossover a lot but something tells us that we'll like it even more on Volvo electrifies it later this year.
That's right, the XC40 we'll be the Swedish brand's first fully electric production vehicle.
Unfortunately this time, Volvo hasn't shared any information about the EV XC40's range, power or torque.
So feel free to engage in some wild internet speculation.
Electric cars are a big deal in Norway.
It is such a big deal that 58.4% of vehicles, that's all the vehicles sold in the nothern country in March were EV's, this works out to EV's having a 31% annual market share in 2018 And they're expecting that number to sail past 50% later this year.
Even crazier is the fact that Norway wants electric vehicles to be the only ones on sale by 2025.
There's been more than a little scuttlebutt in the past month Month or so about the possibility of a Fiat Chrysler and PSA Group partnership.
But now it's looking increasingly like there may be some truth to the rumors.
Word around the school yard is that the two automakers are working on some kind of super platform that would underpin future vehicles for both groups.
Platform sharing is becoming increasingly common as new cars become more complex and expensive to develop.
So this move would have plenty precedence.
