Coming Soon: The All-Electric Volvo XC40 Recharge

Adding to the existing line of Volvo plug-in hybrids in 2020, the new Volvo XC40 Recharge will be the company's first all-electric vehicle. With a powerful, emissions-free powerplant and advanced technology, the Volvo XC40 Recharge represents the next step for Volvo.

All-Electric Powerplant

In a bold new step to produce a more sustainable line of luxury vehicles, Volvo will soon be introducing its first all-electric vehicle in the XC40 Recharge. Built on the same platform as the gas-powered XC40, the XC40 Recharge draws power from a 78-kWh battery mounted beneath the body and between motors located on each axle.

The new Volvo XC40 Recharge will produce a robust 408 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque, with a 0-60mph time just under five seconds. The liquid-cooled battery pack will be able to travel over 200 miles around the Webster, NY area on a single charge.

All-New Technology

The new Volvo XC40 Recharge will have a new technology interface designed by Google to improve connectivity and optimize for the unique needs of an all-electric SUV. Among the customizations are new features for Google Maps which calculate battery range using topography, air temperature, and traffic to predict whether and where you'll need to recharge. You'll even be shown charging stations along your way. Moreover, the technology can continually improve through software updates just as any other connected device would.
