NEW Volvo XC40 Recharge

- 2nd January 2020
Volvo have designed the pure electric XC40 Recharge to give you the best experience on the road now, and to help protect your future.
Dual electric motor powertrain
Dual high-performance 408 hp/300 kW front and rear electric motors – the pure electric XC40 Recharge gives you a supremely inspiring and refined drive. With fast take-offs, all-wheel drive stability and smooth, linear acceleration at all speeds. In near-silence and with zero emissions when driving. Combined with one pedal drive, this makes for an intuitive and powerful drive with a feeling of full control – a car that seamlessly follows your intentions.
Zero emissions when driving
Driving on pure electricity means driving without emitting any tailpipe emissions at all. No carbon dioxide. No particles. No nitrogen oxide. Nothing but the pure joy of freedom – without the environment having to pay the price.
The pure electric XC40 Recharge is designed to reduce environmental impact, including the use of sustainable material. For example, the interior carpeting is entirely made of recycled plastic. Our vision is that 25% of all plastics in our cars will be made from recycled materials by 2025. At the end of the car’s lifecycle, the battery and 95% of the complete car can be recycled – ensuring that limited resources can be reused again.
This feature makes it easy to share your car with others for a certain period of time. Wherever you are, you can give friends, family members and colleagues instant access to your pure electric XC40 Recharge via the Volvo On Call app. They open the car with their mobile phone and then drive away. Smart, easy and secure – and a big leap towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
If you want, the pure electric XC40 Recharge can support you when driving. Pilot Assist, for example, keeps a set speed and distance to vehicles in front while controlling the steering to keep you centred in your lane. This is driving made safer, more enjoyable and more relaxed. Please note: Keep your hands on the steering wheel and remain alert while using the Pilot Assist feature.
BLIS – blind spot warning with steer assist
We designed this technology to help you make the right decisions. If there’s a vehicle in your blind spot and you try to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist is designed to alert and gently steer you back into your lane. Technology is on your side, and you’re in control.
Theft-prevention key fob
Park your pure electric XC40 Recharge with peace in mind. Advanced theft-protection technology helps ensure your car will be there the next time you need it. It even helps prevent thieves from capturing the radio signal from your remote key when you’re at home. When the key is not in motion, it will simply be impossible to copy any signal from it.
