FAQs

What do you want to know about the XC40 Recharge pure electric?

Why should I subscribe to the XC40 Recharge?

If you’re looking for a flexible, hassle-free alternative to leasing or buying a brand new electric car, subscribing to the XC40 Recharge is the perfect choice. You can choose either flexibility and change or quit your car with just 3 month’s notice. Or you’re ready to embrace an all-electric drive for longer and commit to your XC40 Recharge for a fixed 36-month period.

What equipment do I need to charge my Pure Electric XC40 Recharge easily and safely at home?

The standard-fitted home charging cable is primarily designed as an auxiliary cable for household applications. For considerably faster and more convenient charging at home, we recommend installing a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox.

Please note: the availability of charging equipment may vary depending on market.

How much maintenance and service is needed for the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge?

The electric motors are sealed for life and maintenance-free. So compared to a combustion engine-propelled car, the pure electric XC40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs

What's the contract length for an XC40 Recharge subscription?

You can subscribe for a fixed 36-month period or choose a flexible contract with just 3 months’ notice, whichever suits your situation.

How much does it cost to charge the battery of the pure electric XC40 Recharge?

Now that you can subscribe to the XC40 Recharge, it's never been simpler to go green and try a fully electric car. You can subscribe for a fixed 36-month period or choose a flexible contract with just 3 months’ notice, whichever suits your situation. And with a subscription, it’s easier to stay in control of your finances. There’s no bank loan, no deposit, no hidden costs. Just a clear monthly fee that covers most practicalities.

How does the car help me to find the nearest charging station?

In countries where Google Maps includes charging stations, you can find public charging stations direct from the map in the car’s centre display or via a smartphone app. From here you can also select preferred charging stations and get guidance.

How long can I drive before I need to charge the battery?

The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully-charged battery gives you a projected range of up to 418km/208 miles* in mixed driving before you need to recharge. But your real-world range is also affected by your driving style and other circumstances, such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Other factors that impact range include how much electricity you use for car functions such as heating and cooling of the car. One way to improve range is to pre-condition your car during charging so it’s already at a comfortable temperature when you go. You can also add a heat pump that saves valuable energy.

On a daily basis, you will probably fill up the battery whenever the car is parked where charging is possible – be it at home, at work or in the city. So range should not be an issue for everyday driving, provided that you have good access to charging.

*Range according to the realistic WLTP driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.

How can I know that the car's battery has been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way?

Volvo Cars is committed to full traceability, helping to ensure that our customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the raw material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly. The introduction of blockchain technology significantly boosts traceability within our cobalt supply chain. Blockchain, in conjunction with inspection on mine sites, GPS tracking, entry and exit scanning, verified logistics providers, facial recognition, ID checks, and time tracking, all contribute to a material’s traceability from a mine to the car factory.

Volvo Cars works closely with our suppliers to increase the sustainability of our products and services, including through securing responsible supply chains and making efficient use of resources. We are committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals and metals, and fully support the OECD Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-affected and High-risk Areas. In this respect, we require our battery suppliers to support our commitment to have full transparency of our cobalt supply chain by 2020, and to work towards full traceability.

Sustainability performance is a key consideration when assessing and selecting our suppliers. We monitor the performance of existing suppliers, and follow up with third party audits. We also put requirements on our battery suppliers to minimise carbon emissions during the production processes, including through the use of renewable energy. All our suppliers have to agree to the Volvo Cars' Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which includes the observation of human rights, including labour rights.

Which is the fastest way to charge my Pure Electric XC40 Recharge on long journeys?

You will find the fastest charging at a DC fast-charging station along the route. To charge as fast as possible, we recommend you to limit the car's charging level to 80 per cent. This helps keep your charging times short because the last 20 per cent of charging takes the longest time. So charging the battery from zero to 80 per cent at a 150kW DC fast-charger takes only around 40 minutes. But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery up to 100 per cent using the settings in the car’s centre display.

What charging times can I expect when recharging at home?

The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at your home. The standard home charging cable with a household connector is primarily an auxiliary cable. Charging an empty battery to 100 per cent with this cable takes approximately 40–72 hours depending on market, at a charge rate of about 7–14 km range per hour.

For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox. This installation can give you approximately 8 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent), or around 50–60 km range per hour.

When charging at stations outside your home, the most probable situations are that you will top the battery during shorter periods of time, for example from 40 per cent to 80 per cent (11 kW AC gives around 50–60 km range per hour). And on longer trips, you may charge the car using fast-charging DC stations. At a 150 kW DC charging station, you can charge the battery from zero to around 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes (or around 80–100 km range in 10 minutes). Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal.

Please note: Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

How much does it cost to charge the battery of the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge?

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to petrol or diesel. The lowered fuel cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car. And for even lower costs, you can pre-set your pure electric XC40 Recharge to charge at the times when the tariffs are the lowest, often at night.

What is the life cycle carbon footprint for the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric compared to an XC40 Plug-In Hybrid or Mild Hybrid?

Over the average full lifecycle, the XC40 Recharge pure electric’s carbon footprint will be lower compared to both the XC40 plug-in hybrid and the XC40 mild hybrid. The exact differences for the vehicle types depend on a lot of parameters, for instance the electricity mix when charging, the vehicle’s lifetime and driving behaviour.

What warranty does Volvo Cars have on the battery?

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is 8 years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.

How does the battery impact safety in a collision?

The battery means there is 500 kg of extra weight that needs to be addressed in an impact – for the car’s occupants as well as for other vehicles. The battery also needs separate protection to avoid harmful leakage after a collision. By utilising a range of innovative safety solutions, Volvo Cars’ safety engineers have met all these challenges.

Can the battery be replaced?

If the battery or a battery module needs to be replaced, this can be done just like any other technical part of the car.

Is the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge also offered for fleet sales?

Please contact Volvo's fleet team at 0345 600 4027. We'll be happy to answer any questions and discuss options with you.

Can I use the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge for long-distance driving?

This pure electric compact SUV is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery’s high capacity with a projected range of up to 418km/208 miles* ensures you can do so without worrying about range. If you need to charge during the journey, you can do so at an AC charging station or DC fast-charging station. At a 150 kW DC fast charging station, it’s possible to charge the battery from zero to 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes (or around 80–100 km range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.

* Range according to the realistic WLTP driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.

What is the load capacity of the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge?

Smart battery design means all occupants have as much space as in an ordinary XC40. This also gives uncompromised versatility and smart storage solutions. The rear load compartment capacity is 413 litres above the load floor. The battery encroaches on the space below the load floor, but this is to a large extent compensated by the front load compartment under the hood, which offers space for charging cables and other items.

What are the benefits of subscribing to an electric car vs leasing or buying?

Now that you can subscribe to the XC40 Recharge, it's never been simpler to go green and try a fully electric car. You can subscribe for a fixed 36-month period or choose a flexible contract with just 3 months’ notice, whichever suits your situation. And with a subscription, it’s easier to stay in control of your finances. There’s no bank loan, no deposit, no hidden costs. Just a clear monthly fee that covers most practicalities.

How much can I tow with the Pure Electric XC40 Recharge?

We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That’s why the pure electric XC40 Recharge can tow up to 1,500 kg/3307 lb.
