Reports are coming out of China suggesting that Volvo is working on an electric minivan for the Chinese market. The van would be made based on the Zeekr 009.

A new report suggests Volvo is working on an all-electric MPV and will launch the newcomer on the Chinese market later this year, according to Car News China (CNC).

The Swedish automaker previewed the profile of the mystery Volvo in a media presentation in China. According to the publication, Volvo's first-ever MPV will be based on the Zeekr 009, a van with more than 500 horsepower on tap.

This makes sense, as both the Volvo and Zeekr brands are under the ownership of Geely. As such, it's safe to assume the Volvo family hauler will debut with a twin-motor, four-wheel drive setup and the 009's SEA (Sustainable Experience Architecture) platform.

Volvo's MPV will receive a more restrained exterior and is expected to debut as a concept in Q3/2023. According to the report, a production version will hit the Chinese market towards year-end.

The MPV would introduce Volvo's safety technologies into an entirely new segment.
