2018 Volvo XC40 Concept
A draft engine called Draft 40.1 was originally designed by Thomas Ingenlath and was unveiled in 2016. This prototype in engineering was a historic event in Volvo engine history, as it was the first five-door compact SUV that was released by Volvo.
Ingenlath’s 40.1 concept car was the overall inspiration for the 40-series models. The new concept vehicle represents a shift in the thinking of Volvo’s approach to vehicles. By concentrating on compact crossover models, this concept vehicle illustrates the potential for the Volvo XC40 2018 and possible other compact vehicles.
The design change has promoted the development of luxury compact SUVs and sedans within the Volvo range. With innovative practices like the use of the compact modular architecture platform, Volvo ensures that their latest additions are specifically tailored to smaller vehicles. The compact modular architecture platform allows the aesthetics of the outside and the interior to change while maintaining the quality of all vehicles. This process started with the 2018 XC40 and 2018 Volvo XC90 and will still be used across the various Volvo models.
