Can someone tell me whether there should be a shelf covering the spare wheel when the main shelf is split and in the raised position?

Yes I have another cover immediately above the spare tyre and below the folding boot floor. There is space in between the 2 to put the parcel shelf out of the way.

Does anyone know why you cannot have a folding boot shelf on a 2022 recharge but you can have spare wheel?

Now that i'm typing it it sounds stupid, but probably Volvo doesn't want the risk of bags breaking and spilling the contents all over the batteries that must be running the lenght of the car

Thanks for your replies, I had a look through the tread posted and it does seem it is no longer supplied. (I spoke to my dealership who also confirms that is the case) SHAME ON YOU VOLVO. Nice innovation, but totally marred by penny pinching. I must say I am surprised at Volvo not considering the risk of grocery spillages on the electronics and spare wheel.
