After great success with the Volvo XC90, the latest reports are writing about the brands-new flagship model 2023 Volvo XC100. Volvo plans to redesign all fleets of its vehicle, transforming most of them to be all-electric by 2025. Swedish manufacturer is currently working on a new platform that will be the most significant so far. In general, we think that the new XC100 SUV will use it, and it will be much larger than the XC90 model.
At this point, the manufacture didn’t reveal any information about the engine of the XC100 model. Many believe the new model will feature a high-powered petrol-based mild-hybrid set-up, plug-in hybrid, and pure-electric configurations. The upcoming SUV is a direct rival to models in the same class, such as the Mercedes GLS and BMW X7.
2023 Volvo XC100 Design
According to some renderings, the upcoming 2023 Volvo XC100 will be much larger than many of its rivals in the segment. This model will probably ride on a new Volvo’s SPA2 architecture, which contradicts the SPA platform that’s used on the XC90 model. Reportedly, architecture will be able to handle large batteries and electric motors for easy.
Also, from available information, this platform will stretch up to 216 inches. Giving that, the new model will be larger than the BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS by few inches. As for the styling, we expect this SUV to share many cues with other Volvo models. Generally speaking, it will be a mix of the XC90 and Polestar models.
At this point, there is no clue about the interior of the upcoming 2023 Volvo XC100. From what we heard, the new flagship model will be more modern and comfortable than its sibling XC90.
Moreover, considering it will sit on the latest and more significant platform, we should expect more room inside. It will probably offer three rows of seats and enough space to fit seven adults. As we mention, this is the next flagship model, and Volvo will probably introduce more technology than we can imagine.
2023 Volvo XC100 SUV Engines
The forthcoming 2023 Volvo XC100 will likely feature a mixture of higher-end powertrains from the manufacturer’s lineup. A high-powered petrol-based mild-hybrid set-up will probably power the entry-level model. However, other options that are rumored are both plug-in hybrid and pure-electric configurations.
As we mentioned, the upcoming SUV will sit on the new SPA2 architecture that should also underpin the forthcoming all-electric Polestar SUV. Whatever, we can expect the XC100 SUV to deliver impressive performances and millage. Swedish manufacturer will probably release official details in the coming months.
Release Date and Price
Brand’s new flagship SUV, the 2023 Volvo XC100, will reportedly arrive in China and the United States markets next year. Besides, we also expect this model in Europe as well. Officials are still quiet about its price, but many believe that the most potent variant could cost around $100,000.
Volvo has a plan to electrify all upcoming new and old models by 2025. The new XC100 will probably go on sale in the second half of 2022.
