XC40 Luggage Compartment

Escenda was commissioned by Volvo to make the Surface Design for the XC40 luggage compartment - a packaging challenge for our Surface Design team.


  • Surface designing the complete luggage compartment as a complete delivery unit
  • Challenging technical input for our surface design team – maximizing volume and practicality while keeping a clean design and leaving enough play for surrounding parts
  • Volvo’s first car on the new shared platform with Lynk & CO, resulting in more complex packaging and more changes
  • Implementation of several carry over parts


  • Tight collaboration with the client and the involved parties designing adjacent parts
  • Taking advantage of our knowledge in both Autodesk Alias and ICEM Surf and using their respective strengths in concept modeling and A-class
  • A mixed team of experienced modelers and recently graduated kept the cost down for the client while ensuring top class deliveries
  • Creative solutions allowing the use of several carry over parts
  • Our knowledge and access to the Volvo systems allows packaging collaboration and smooth deliveries


  • Delivery of the complete luggage compartment with a smooth transition into the Volvo systems

  • Complex areas solved in a neat way, balancing design and packaging

  • Cost savings thanks to the creative implementation of carry over parts
