Thumbs down 2012 Volvo XC60 Charging Failure

Hey everyone , I was out driving this afternoon with my wife and our one week old baby. All of a sudden all of my dash lights came on and it gave me a code of Charging system failure , first my power steering and BLIS shut off and then the car just died. I got an absolutely horrible response from my dealer , does anyone have any idea of what would cause this ?

Unhappy

Still no word from the dealer at this point , I found a few other people with this issue out there. I think it may be just a faulty alternator , I will update again once they call.

Cheers
