Volvo’s compact vehicle platform has, since being introduced in 2017, provided the basis for more than 600,000 vehicles worldwide, the company revealed today in a statement.

The platform underpins the XC40 as well as the XC40 Recharge P8 electric vehicle, whose sales are set to begin this fall. It was also used to create the Lynk & Co 01, 02, 03, and 05, as well as the equally creatively-named Polestar 2.

“We are incredibly proud of these sales figures for our CMA cars,” said Håkan Samuelsson, Chief Executive at Volvo Cars. “We have had 10 very successful years with Geely, and we will continue to leverage the excellent partnerships we have created within the Group to pave the way for further growth and synergies.”



The platform is not only essential as the basis for Volvo, Lynk & Co, and Polestar’s small cars, but as the basis for their EV ambitions, as well. The XC40 Recharge P8 will be the first EV in Volvo’s “Recharge” range and will be the basis of Polestar’s first EV.

“Volvo Cars today is stronger than it has ever been,” said Håkan Samuelsson, “and we still have much to do. We are excited to see our fully electric vehicle range reach the market, led by the XC40 Recharge, and we will keep this momentum going by investing in electrification, new technologies and future mobility solutions.”
