About the Volvo XC40 Recharge

Volvo XC40 Recharge

The ultimate expression of the true urban SUV, the dynamic all-electric Volvo XC40 Recharge delivers emission-free exhilaration combined with a youthful attitude. As part of the global Volvo commitment to becoming climate neutral by 2040, the XC40 Recharge represents one of the largest advancements towards achieving this goal. Powering the XC40 Recharge is a sophisticated battery-electric powertrain that produces 402 combined system horsepower, 223 miles of total range, and a permanent all-wheel drive system. Its advanced one-pedal driving capabilities further enhance your experience behind the wheel.

The same emphasis on groundbreaking technology translates to the cabin of the XC40 Recharge as well. Serving as the foundation for access to media and infotainment, drivers can take advantage of standard Google Services (Google Maps, Google Voice, Google Assistant, and Google Play Store). Designed to adapt to your lifestyle, you'll also find a number of innovative storage solutions highlighted by the practical front trunk. A full suite of active safety features is yet another reason that the Volvo XC40 Recharge is revolutionizing the way you envision an all-electric crossover.

What the Critics Say

"The Volvo XC40 is already an excellent subcompact luxury SUV. The XC40 Recharge takes many of the Volvo virtues of the XC40 like roomy seating, sleek aesthetics, and excellent safety scores and electrifies it. An all-electric powertrain powers the Recharge model with lively performance and a range of 223 miles on a full charge." -- Kelley Blue Book

"...the Recharge has none of those downsides -- it's quiet, smooth and composed, both around town and on the highway. Making the experience even better is the Recharge's one-pedal drive mode, achieved through excellent regenerative braking. This can be turned off completely, but I don't know why you would; once you use one-pedal driving it's hard to go back." -- Roadshow by CNET

What's New for 2023

The XC40 Recharge is still a pretty new model, so not very much has changed for 2023. There is a new animal-free vinyl interior option, which is offered alongside the existing interior options. There is a new front fascia, which consists mostly of a new bumper, essentially the same one that is found on the C40. And the headlights have been changed too, albeit subtly.

Electrified Performance

Seamless acceleration, zero emissions, and smooth power delivery. These are only three signature characteristics of the innovative all-electric powertrain of the Volvo XC40 Recharge. Thanks to its battery-electric foundation, the XC40 Recharge powertrain delivers a combined system output of 402 horsepower and superb handling thanks to a cleverly positioned 78 kWh lithium-ion high-voltage located low within the chassis. A permanent all-wheel drive system helps deliver outstanding stability and confidence in slippery conditions.

Drivers can take advantage of one of several charging solutions to help make the transition to all-electric travel virtually effortless. An onboard 11 kWh charger can be used at a conventional household outlet. At your home or office, the XC40 Recharge offers Level 2 charging to help top off the battery when not in use. There's also DC Fast Charging at up to 150 kWh to help you recharge the battery from 0 to 80% in as little as 40 minutes.

Integrated Technology

Integration and connectivity are two additional focal points that Volvo engineers have infused into the dynamic XC40 Recharge.

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration lets you bring your favorite apps along for every journey..

Specialized front seats feature a unique cut and the seat structure is designed to offer maximum safety in the event of an accident without compromising comfort. Enhancing audio performance is the exclusive patented Air Woofer Technology mounted below the windshield. Additional storage space within the front trunk and rear loadspace makes the Volvo XC40 Recharge the perfect solution for your daily commute and extended road trips.
