Volvo XC40 Recharge

Volvo XC40 Recharge


The Volvo XC40 Recharge is a compact SUV designed to blend an urban lifestyle with sheer luxury, with a focus on e-mobility as the brand commits to becoming an all-electric car brand by 2030. It’s a luxury electric vehicle that competes with the Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes-Benz EQC, and Audi e-Tron and e-Tron Sportback.

The release of this electric vehicle was scheduled for 2021. It was, however, postponed due to the pandemic. As a result, it is expected to be released in the first quarter of this year.

The price of the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge starts at $55,300 for the Plus trim and $58,150 for the Ultimate model. That’s quite pricey, but depending on where you live, federal, state, or local tax breaks may make this EV more affordable.

All XC40 Recharge models are subject to a $1,095 destination charge.

There are few direct competitors for the Volvo XC40 Recharge. The Tesla Model Y, the more expensive Audi e-Tron, and the more affordable Ford Mustang Mach-E and Volkswagen ID.4 are its closest competitors. All of the other electric SUVs mentioned above are larger and have a greater range than the XC40 Recharge.

Design highlights

Leather-free interior

The XC40 Recharge’s interior was designed without the use of any leather and is a living expression of responsible luxury.

Backlit ambiance

Translucent back-lit decor inspired by topography creates a natural, soothing glow and a contemporary vibe in the cabin.

Partially recycled carpets

Fjord blue, partially recycled carpets are a more environmentally friendly option that also serves as a visually appealing interior design feature.

Smart storage

Inside, you’ll find clever storage solutions for water bottles, gym bags, phones, laptops, take-out food, and other items, as well as a front compartment for charging cables.

Feature highlights

The XC40 Recharge pure electric ticks every box in terms of safety, comfort, and audio design.

Comfort and Tech

Cleaner cabin air

Our advanced air purifier system keeps up to 80% of dangerous PM 2.5 particles out of the cabin. This can help you and your passengers enjoy better and healthier air quality, regardless of the outside conditions. Outside the car, you can even monitor particle and pollen levels.

A helping hand

Our advanced driver assistance technology can assist you in keeping a safe distance from cars in front by adjusting your speed, keeping your car centred in the lane, notifying you when it’s safe to resume driving, and even bringing the vehicle to a complete stop in the event of an unresponsive driver.

App remote services

Harman Kardon Premium Sound system

Beautiful sound for the senses

This premium optional audio system produces refined sound that can be felt all around you. It immerses you, moves you, and allows you to enjoy every moment, regardless of genre.

Immerse yourself in music

This premium optional audio system produces refined sound that can be felt all around you. It immerses you, moves you, and allows you to enjoy every moment, regardless of genre.

Optimized speaker performance

Dirac® Unison Tuning, a proprietary sound processing software, optimises the response of each individual speaker as well as the speakers as a system, ensuring they perform in perfect harmony.

Assisted safety

360° parking view

With four cameras providing a 360° view and flank sensors increasing awareness of objects to the side of the vehicle, our system can assist you in parking confidently even in tight spaces. 

Reverse with confidence

When reversing with a limited view, cross-traffic alert with auto brake assists the driver. The system can detect vehicles approaching from behind and, if necessary, apply the auto brake.

Ease stress in busy traffic

When changing lanes, our blind spot information system (BLIS) provides active assistance. If there is a risk of a collision with another vehicle in the adjacent lane, BLIS can adjust steering subtly to keep you, your car, and your loved ones exactly where you want to be.

Stay in lane

If you unintentionally start to drift out of your lane, your Volvo can send a subtle vibration through the steering wheel to help guide you back to the centre.

Avoid collisions

Our intelligent safety assistance technology can help you detect and avoid other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals at any time of day or night. It accomplishes this by first warning the driver and then automatically braking if the driver fails to respond.

Protective body structure

Advanced body structure and a unique battery safety cage are designed to protect all occupants in the event of a collision, as well as the occupants of other vehicles.

EV Motor, Power, and Performance

All XC40 Recharge models will be equipped with two electric motors, one driving the front wheels and the other the rears, providing full-time all-wheel drive. The engine produces 402 horsepower and propels the XC40 Recharge to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds on our test track. During our test drive, we noticed a smooth ride and refined cruising manner; aggressive drivers may prefer the Polestar 2. We like that regenerative braking allows for one-pedal driving, which is a desirable and convenient EV feature.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

The XC40 Recharge comes standard with a 75.0-kWh battery pack, and the EPA estimates a range of 223 miles per charge. With that range promise, the XC40 Recharge can compete with the Audi e-Tron and the Jaguar I-Pace, but it falls short of the Model Y, which can travel more than 300 miles on a single charge. The XC40 Recharge will be able to charge at both DC fast-charging terminals and 240-volt home chargers.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Instead of Volvo’s current Sensus Connect infotainment system, the XC40 Recharge features a new generation of software developed in collaboration with Google’s Android Automotive. The Polestar 2 offers a similar infotainment system, which we found to be intuitive and snappy in its functionality, but the Volvo version suffers from small onscreen buttons that are difficult to operate while driving. A standard 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster offers several customization options. Despite the collaboration with Google, the new infotainment system will eventually support both Android and Apple iPhone devices, as well as a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Volvo provides a comprehensive warranty package on its new vehicles, including a three-year or 36,000-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance plan.

  • The limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles
  • Battery components are covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles
  • Complimentary scheduled maintenance is covered for 3 years or 36,000 miles



The XC40 Recharge is as practical and stylish as the gasoline-powered version on which it is based, and its electric powertrain adds to its eco credentials.
