One thing I'm a bit disappointed with is a lack of reasonably available mechanical/technical info about our cars. I know 95% of people don't care or want to know, but I'm a technoweenie and would love more information.

Does anyone have some resources outside of the owners manual, this and other forums, about what's under the sheetmetal? Access to a service manual would be awesome, I'd even pay a reasonable sum for it.

I plan to put it up on ramps and explore underneath a bit this weekend, and maybe pop the covers from under the hood. But, for no other reason than I love poking around our technological marvels.

Please share photos of you find anything interesting. There are videos on YouTube showing the components of some other EVs that have been disassembled. Very interesting, but I haven’t seen anything about the XC40.

IIRC there were some cool “cut away” type videos and clips on the Polestar website for the Polestar 2, which is fairly shared with our vehicle. I realize the interior has some differences, SUV vs Sedan, etc — but the lower underpinnings should be similar enough that a visit to their site or googling Polestar 2 might yield more results.
