2020 Volvo XC40 Electric sketched out, includes 'frunk'

The design of the Volvo XC40 Electric, the company's first EV, has been teased ahead of its launch on October 16, European time. Externally the electric XC40 will feature a cleaner rear bumper design as it has no need for tailpipes, while the covered up grille has plenty of space to hide the sensors required for the car's new Advanced Driver Assistance System.

Volvo XC40: T3 variant gets auto option in the UK

Volvo Car has added a new transmission option for the entry-level T3 version of the XC40 small SUV, which should further broaden the crossover’s appeal. Introduced as part of some running changes for the European market, the XC40 T3 gets a slightly upgraded 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine for 2019, with power now rated at 163hp (121kW) up from 156hp (116kW).
