2020 Volvo XC40 Recharge

by Mike Hunter

402 horsepower. Zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. 2,000-pound towing. No carbon emissions while driving. With the pure electric XC40 Recharge, there is no compromising the power to drive in a more sustainable way.

The pure electric XC40 Recharge is a carbon emission-free yet powerful driving experience. Drivers experience a compact, pure electric SUV that supports and helps protect what’s important. Stay safer and enjoy the ride.

The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully charged battery gives drivers a projected range of more than 400 kilometers/200 miles at mixed driving before there is a need to recharge. The real-world range, however, is also affected by driving style and other circumstances, such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads.

Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play Store are all embedded. Even without a smartphone, the driver always stays connected on the go. There are loads of smart storage for water bottles, gym bags, phones, laptops, take-away food and whatever — including a front compartment for charging cables. This is life made easy. Pre-climatize the car remotely, find charging stations and get personal assistance 24/7. With Volvo On Call, it is technologically convenient to optimize the electric mobility experience.

Thinking into the future, Volvo included Car Sharing, which comes standard. The car owner can invite a friend via a smartphone and share the car remotely for a set period; family, friends — they can all “share” the ride.

The styling is compact, yet expansive. That is to say, all nooks and crannies have been well thought out to include five passengers very comfortably. Sporty and well equipped means this mini-SUV is perfect for any outing. Sound, technology and efficient gauges keep the driver informed, connected and ready to go anywhere.
