The fully electric Volvo XC40 Recharge is a fantastic fit for the new city life, now that our time at home is extended, running errands, weekend getaways, and escapes are even more important. Many city dwellers are choosing to become first-time car owners and the Volvo XC40 Recharge with dual-motor power train and standard all-wheel-drive make this electric ride a great fit for city and non-city drivers. A battery that charges to 80% in 40 minutes, on a fast-charger system makes the XC40 always road-trip-ready. The XC40 Recharge is also the first of a family of fully electric Volvos and the first Volvo with a new infotment system powered by Google’s Android operating system.
This new Android-powered infotainment system gives customers unprecedented personalization, improved levels of intuitiveness, and embedded Google technology and services, such as the Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the Google Play Store.
As a fully electric version of the best-selling XC40 SUV, the XC40 Recharge P8 benefits from the electrified propulsion system without compromising on interior space. Complete with a 402 horsepower, zero tailpipe emission, and all-wheel-drive power train features 486 lb. ft. of linear torque.
“The XC40 Recharge is an excellent car for anyone who appreciates style and technology,” said Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President, Americas, and President and CEO, Volvo Car USA.
“The fact it is electric only adds to its appeal because it is cleaner, quieter, and more responsive.”
The XC40 features a laminated panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade and dual-zone automatic climate control with CleanZone.™ For those who live in cold climates Volvo’s heated windshield-wiper blades, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel is a must.
Volvo Cars are committed to becoming a premium electric car company and in coming years, the company will launch several fully electric cars. By 2025, it aims for its global sales to consist of 50 percent fully electric cars, with the rest hybrids.
