The Compact Modular Architecture (CMA)[7] is a global mid-size unibody automobile platform, jointly developed by Volvo and Geely under their China Euro Vehicle Technology AB (CEVT) R&D banner.[8][9][10]

Development began in 2013 with the goal of producing a highly flexible vehicle platform.[11] Only the distance between the centre of the front wheels and the pedal box is fixed, everything else can be configured to suit the intended vehicle design.[12][3]

The platform debuted in September 2017 with the release of the Volvo XC40. The CMA platform configuration in the XC40 will feature new 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engines with turbocharged and naturally aspirated variations.[13] The platform will also accommodate a plug-in hybrid configuration capable of 180 bhp, supplemented by a 74 bhp electric motor.[13]

Applications[edit]

The Compact Modular Architecture platform is also shared with Chinese startup company, Lynk & Co.[14] The Lynk & Co 01 SUV will be the first of several Lynk & Co models to be underpinned by the CMA platform.[15]

Volvo released its first fully electric car Polestar 2 based on the CMA platform in 2019.[16]
