XC40 R8 "Recharge" All-Electric Volvo

 
    
    

Oct 16, 2019 Revealed today, the XC40 Recharge builds on the successful package that is the XC40: expressive design, smart storage solutions, and innovative technologies. Add to that one 150 kW motor per axle, producing a combined 402 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque capable of propelling the vehicle to 60 mph in a mere 4.7 seconds and you end up with the most dynamic XC40 there is.

Electric range from the 78 kWh battery is expected to be over 200 EPA-rated miles and can be charged up to 80% in about 40 minutes using the 150 kW DC fast charger.

Styling and design changes of the XC40 Recharge are intentionally subtle vs. the petrol models: the traditional grill has been abandoned for an in-color, covered fascia, giving the car a distinct presence up front. A 'Recharge' badge on the trunk lid and embossing on the C/D Pillar, unique wheels, and the lack of tailpipes (no emissions!) are other identifiers of Volvo's first electric offering. The XC40 Recharge also adopts the Black contrast roof among other trim elements, as well as the rich level of standard equipment from the highly popular R-Design trim. After the current federal tax incentive of $7,500, the vehicle will start below $48,000.

The XC40 Recharge also marks the introduction of a new infotainment system powered by Android with integrated Google services, e.g. Google Assistant (more to come on this entirely new approach to bringing infotainment into the vehicle in the future). In fact, there is still so much to talk about with the new XC40 Recharge (and the Sustainability Moment as a whole) that we will likely devote a few more Focus Facts to the topic.
