A little guessing about the capabilities of the all-electric XC40 due out later this year. Guessing better than 280 miles range with 100 kWh battery pack, and 150 KW charging capability, which means it can charge about 220 miles for 30 minutes on an ultra-fast charger.
"......this week at the SAE 2017 Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technologies Symposium in San Diego, the company reaffirmed that the first all-electric Volvo car will be available in 2019 and confirmed that the platform could support battery packs up to 100 kWh.
The vehicle will be the first all-electric from the automaker and third plug-in since it already sells the XC90 and it plans to bring another PHEV to market next year, according to Mats Anderson, Senior Director of Electric Propulsion Systems at Volvo.
But we are more interested in the new all-electric platform.
Reporting on Anderson speaking at the symposium, Green Car Congress wrote:
To enable the cost-effective production of a range of BEVs meeting different requirements, Volvo is developing the Modular Electrification Platform (MEP)—a set of modular building blocks for electrification than will allow Volvo to deliver vehicles ranging between 100 – 450 kW of propulsive power, with battery packs of up to 100 kWh in size.
A 100 kWh battery pack can enable over 300 miles of range depending on the efficiency of the vehicle. It’s likely to be only a high-end option, like Tesla currently offers in the Model S and X. Smaller battery packs are often sufficient for most use cases."
Plus the specs on the Polestar 2 show a capability of 150 KW ultra-fast charging.
I can't wait to get either my all-electric XC60 or XC90 due out in a couple of years.
