If you’ve been pondering a move to an electric-powered vehicle, the time is now. Volvo’s XC40 Recharge - the new pure electric SUV - has arrived and it’s lighting up drivers’ passions and satisfying their need for innovation.
The first in a range of five new fully electric vehicles in the next five years, the XC40 Recharge is set to dominate the market thanks to an abundance of Scandinavian style, innovative technology and incredible electric performance that delivers zero tailpipe emissions.
A high density 78 kWh battery provides an incredible 249-mile driving range, but not at the expense of performance. This car is packed with power. In fact, the model comes with twin electric motors which produce an undeniable punch of 408hp that can achieve 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds. Recharging of the electric powertrain can be done at home easily or at a public DC fast-charging station and it is quick and easy. Plus the battery is boosted by regenerative technology which reuses the energy you create while braking.
It’s not just the power that is cutting edge though; the XC40 Recharge debuts Volvo’s brand-new Android-powered infotainment system. Unrivalled personalisation and incredible levels of intuitive control, the system embeds Google’s open-source Android platform, Android Automotive OS. This means Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play Store are all built-in.
Other impressive features include an additional 30-litre storage compartment under the front bonnet which uses the space where a standard engine would be, a sizable 1,500kg towing capacity for ultimate practicality, and a pre-climatising function to heat or cool your car remotely.
