Volvo’s first full EV launches in November the all electric XC40 guess they will need a lot of lithium for that!

no need to speculate, SPA2 is in full development at the moment. This was announced 6 months ago.

Yes, we all know that from previous topics on this forum, so no speculation was intended: https://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=291213

We also discussed the fact that Volvo invested on a company that specializes on high power wireless charging of electric vehicles that will for sure debut on the new SPA:

It's just interesting to follow the actions they are putting in place for the new SPA and how they are defining their strategy

Ah, got you.

Regarding batteries, I heard that there will be another Plug in hybrid battery upgrade coming, and apparently the plug in hybrid battery in the SPA2 platform will have double the capacity the T8 has now.... nice!
