0 – 62mph
Take a tour with our experts, Beatrice Simonsson, David Holecek, Caroline Kjellin, and Malin Ekholm to learn more about the XC40 Recharge – our first pure electric car.
408 hp. 0 – 62mph in 4.9 secs. 1,500 kg towing. No emissions while driving. With the pure electric XC40 Recharge, you don’t have to compromise anymore to drive in a more sustainable way.
A large 78 kWh battery with a projected range of ~250 miles*. So you don’t have to charge it so often. And when needed, it can fast-charge from 10 to 80% in around 40 minutes**.
Google Maps. Google Assistant. Google Play Store. All of it's embedded***. Even without your phone, you’ll always stay connected on the go.
Loads of smart storage for water bottles, gym bags, phones, laptops, take-away food and whatever. Including a front compartment for your charging cables. This is life made easy.
Pre-climatize your car remotely. Find charging. Get personal assistance 24/7. Check charging and car status. Volvo On Call*** gives you a convenient, electric mobility experience.
Car Sharing*** comes standard. Invite a friend via your phone, and share your car remotely for a set period. Some things are simply too good to keep for yourself.
*Range is according to WLTP and EPA driving cycles and real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.
**Fast charging DC up to 150 kW.
***Not available in all markets.
The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at home. The standard charging cable with a household connector is primarily an auxiliary cable and not recommended for regular charging. Charging an empty battery to 80% with this cable takes approximately 30–55 hours depending on market. Or, which is perhaps more relevant: around 7.5–14 km range per hour. For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend you complement with a cable capable of up to 3.5 kW or 11 kW charging. These cables give charging times of approximately 18.5–5.5 hours (around 20–60 km range per hour) respectively.
But for the most efficient and integrated home charging solution, we recommend the Volvo Cars Wallbox. This powerful 11 kW, 32A installation will give you approximately 5.5 hours charging time (from empty to 80%) or 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% to 80% (11 kW AC gives around 55–60 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 10 to around 80% in approximately 40 minutes (or around 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.
The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully-charged battery gives you a projected range of ~250 miles* at 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 are 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 comfortable climatized when you go. You can also add a heat pump that saves valuable energy.
But 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 and EPA driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.
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.
If the battery needs to be replaced, this can be done just like any other technical part of the car.
The Volvo Cars Warranty is at least 78% energy retention after 8 years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.
All our current models are available as Plug-in Hybrid’s giving you the ultimate combination of performance and fuel-efficiency.
