      XC20? New Compact Officially Coming

      Volvo won't confirm the name, but something smaller is definitely coming. Electric only. "Volvo is pushing ahead with plans for a smaller SUV, potentially badged XC20 - and the company boss has confirmed that it will be one of the first cars based on the new pure-electric platform developed by the Swedish brand’s owner, Geely." https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/volvo/...ls-in-pipeline

      It is quite hard to imagine all following come true. No spy photo showed up for cars coming in 2021. Definitely delayed by the pandemic.

      A S/V40 EV in 2021
      XC100 in 2022, and with three power train choices
      XC20 EV
      A Polestar 3 huge EV SUV
      A Polestar Precept big sedan in 2023

      Hopefully the upcoming 40 will look a lot like this concept, especially since Volvo (I'm including Polestar 1 and 2) has a history of building cars that look close to their concepts. https://www.netcarshow.com/volvo/201...llpaper_05.htm

      This concept could be the Polestar 3 SUV coupe. We don't know.

      Only vaguely. But the XC20 will be much, much, much nicer by a factor of 10.

      Actually, the Precept is supposed to show the styling language of upcoming Polestars, starting with the 3. I know that the 3 will be an SUV, but the Precept is supposed to show the direction in which Polestar is heading. They want to develop their own style and not just use Volvos as a basis.

      Given that they plan to start Precept production in about 3 year, I have no idea what design and when they will make Polestar 3. Ideally they probably should have the design done already by now. But it is all somehow wild this year. And next year they will be selling just Polestar 2 high and low trim models. It is hard for them to start selling Polestar 3 SUV in 2022 and Precept in 2023. Maybe they will just label the Precept as model 3. Given that they need a new factory to build Precept, they probably don't have facility to build a SUV before Precept.
