Well the last paragraph is just gibberish:
As for the battery, either 100% guaranteed to maintain the same 78 kWh battery gross mounted on the all-wheel drive version for sale. Henrik Green, Volvo’s chief technology officer, announced at the electric unveiling that “later we will see less powerful alternatives with potentially shorter range in single-engine, two-wheel drive versions.” We will leave doubts very soon, the Swedish firm sales will begin in september, so we must know its details in spring.

I would expect to see a much smaller battery pack (less than 50KWh) with a range of about 200miles (WLTP), to account for the lower prices and to make it lighter to keep a sporty-ish feel and keep it on brand

Unfortunately that's just one of those aggregator/scraper sites that grabs news items in any language and then (poorly) translates them into your language. I think common sense indcates that it will be a single motor, probably increased to 250bhp-280bhp or thereabouts (it'll still be a heavy car, too heavy for 200bhp to be called sporty), and with a battery closer to 60kWh instead of 78kWh, following on from what Jaguar have done with their EV320 and the Audi eTron 50 (71kWh battery as opposed to 95kWh, 313bhp instead of 408bhp).
