Volvo has announced the launch of its first electric vehicle, the XC40 Recharge, on its official website. The Volvo XC40 Recharge, which was recently featured on Volvo India’s website, is priced at Rs 75 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). The XC40 Recharge was first announced in March 2021, and pre-orders were opened in June 2021, but the launch was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and a shortage of semiconductors. Now that the model is listed on the Volvo India website, it appears that the XC40 Recharge will be released soon.
With a few minor differences, the electric SUV resembles its ICE counterpart in terms of design. On 19-inch alloy wheels, the Volvo XC40 Recharge electric SUV rides. It has a white-finished panel on the outside with the Volvo logo and LED headlamps.
A 12-inch digital instrument cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, two-zone climate control, leather upholstery, wireless phone charging, and a powered driver and passenger seat will be included in the India-spec XC40’s cabin.
The all-electric Volvo XC40 Recharge is based on Volvo’s Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), which also underpins the previous XC40 model. It is powered by twin electric motors rated at 150 kW each, producing 402 horsepower and 660 Nm of torque. Electric motors are powered by a 78 kWH lithium-ion battery that takes around 40 minutes to charge from 0% to 80% using a 150kW DC fast charger, according to the company.
The XC40 Recharge has a top speed of 180 kmph and a range of 418 kilometres, according to Volvo. According to the company, the electric SUV accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in just 4.9 seconds. When it comes to competitors, the Volvo XC40 Recharge will face off against the Audi e-tron, Mini Cooper SE, Mercedes-Benz EQC, and Jaguar I-PACE when it debuts.
