What do you want to know about the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric?

How long can I drive before I need to recharge the battery?

The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully-charged battery gives you a projected range above 200 miles* at mixed driving before you need to recharge. But your real-world range is also affected by your driving style and other circumstances such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Other factors that impact range are how much electricity you use for car functions such as heating and cooling of the car. One way to improve range, is to pre-condition your car during charging. You can also add a heat pump that saves valuable energy.

But on a daily basis, you will probably charge the battery whenever the car is parked where charging is possible - be it at home, at work or in the city. So range should not be an issue for everyday driving provided that you have good access to charging.

*THIS IS NOT BASED ON EPA TESTING. 200-mile combined driving range rating. Based on EU WLTP testing under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Your range will vary depending on driving conditions, how you drive and maintain your vehicle, battery-package/condition, and other factors. **Fast charging DC up to 150 kW. Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

What charging times can I expect when recharging at home?

The charging time for the upcoming XC40 Recharge Pure Electric depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at home. The standard charging cable with a household connector is primarily an auxiliary cable and not recommended for regular charging. Charging an empty battery to 80% with this cable takes approximately 24 hours depending on market. For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend you use 3.5 kW or 11 kW charging cables. These cables give charging times of approximately 18.5-5.5 hours respectively. But for the most efficient and integrated home charging solution, we recommend the Volvo Cars Wallbox. This powerful 11 kW, 32A installation will give you approximately 5.5 hours charging time (from empty to 80%) or 35 mile range per hour. More information on purchasing the Volvo Cars Wallbox and arranging in home installation will be available shortly. When charging at stations outside your home, the most probable situations are that you will top off the battery during shorter periods of time, for example from 40% to 80% (11 kW AC gives around 35 mile range per hour). And on longer trips, you may charge the car using fast-charging DC stations. At a 150 kW DC charging station you can charge the battery from 10% to around 80% in approximately 40 minutes (or around 50 miles range in 10 minutes). Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal. Please note: Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

How much does it cost to charge the battery of the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric?

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to gasoline. The typically lower operating cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car. And for even lower costs, you can can arrange for charging when energy rates are the lowest, often at night.

Can the battery be replaced?

If the battery needs to be replaced, this can be done just like any other technical part of the car.

How much can I tow with the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric?

We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That's why the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric allows towing up to 2,000 lb.

The Electric Powertrain

The electric powertrain that motivates the new Volvo XC40 Recharge offers both impressive power and great range, a combination that is proving difficult to come by in most current electric vehicles. Power output is strong at 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque, and the all-wheel drive system puts that power to the ground with great effect. You'll go from sitting still to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds at full tilt, impressive figures for even a compact SUV to achieve. That all-wheel drive system can help you out when the snow flies around Fort Washington as well, by reducing torque and redistributing power to the wheels with more grip, you'll be able to get through even deep snow with confidence.

Charging and Range

Of course, one of the big questions that always surrounds a new EV is how practical it will be for day to day driving. In short, the new Volvo XC40 Recharge is a great choice for your daily commute. It can handle your longer road trips as well, with a range of over 200 miles from a full charge. Even better, you can recover up to 80 percent of your battery life with just 40 minutes on a fast charger, so even on a long road trip you can keep the journey going with a quick sit-down lunch or dinner while your battery recharges.

Additional Cargo Space

The new Volvo XC40 Recharge doesn't use the space under the for an engine compartment, so you'll have that space available for a bit of additional storage when you need it. Perfect for keeping a few extra bags without cluttering up the rear cargo space, this front trunk can easily hold up to three carry-ons, your weekly shopping, or a gym bag. The hydraulic hinges hold it open so you can easily load and remove your cargo, but it is light enough to easily pull down with one hand when you're done.

This additional front trunk brings total cargo space in the new Volvo XC40 Recharge up to nearly 18 cubic feet, and that's before you fold the rear seats down to expand that cargo area as well.


Of course, the new Volvo XC40 Recharge is still a Volvo, so it comes packed with the latest safety technology to help you along the way. The forward collision alert system works in a wide variety of situations by detecting vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and even animals on the road ahead of you. There is an oncoming traffic sensor that will warn you against making left turns as another vehicle approaches, even if you can't yet see the vehicle in question. And with blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and a surround-view monitor helping you in tight spaces, you'll have more awareness of the things your mirrors can't tell you about the world around you.


The new Volvo XC40 Recharge offers plenty of comfort for your travels as well, with premium upholstery that is both supportive and provides ventilation to keep you comfortable as you drive. Power-adjustable seats make it easy to find your ideal driving position, while dual-zone automatic climate control offers an easy way to keep your passengers happy.
