The coupe SUV, the flattened version of the SUV, is a reality, whether we like it or not. Volvo has held back in this regard so far, but maybe that will change later.

In any case, Volvo designer Robin Page told Auto Express in early 2020 that the brand's electric car offensive will include this body type.

Will Volvo bring an XC40 Coupe as the first vehicle of its kind? Motor.es tries to foresee what such a vehicle might look like with a rendering.

Volvo has announced that it will present a new electric car at the beginning of March 2021, Volvo's second electric model after the XC 40 Recharge Pure Electric. Like the XC40, it should be based on the CMA (compact module architecture) platform. It is said not to be a successor to the V40. When asked about the new model, Volvo boss Hakan Samuelsson told Automotive News Europe that it will have a "more streamlined body" than the XC40.
