The new Volvo XC40 Recharge | Revolutionary SUV from Volvo

Volvo have come up with a brand-new feature packed, upgraded Volvo XC40 Recharge. Today in this article we will go through the new XC40 Recharge, its specifications, advance features, price and its performance too.

Volvo Cars – a Swedish multinational luxury vehicle manufacturer with its headquarters in Torslanda, Gothenburg is one of the leading car manufacturers. Mainly it is famous on its SUV segment as its SUV are said to be more compact, powerful and rigid on its category.

Volvo have recently announced its new upgraded SUV the brand-new Volvo XC40 Recharge which is full of advance features with its rigid, compact body design attractive enough to invest on it.

Electric Motor of Volvo XC40 Recharge

Combined with all-wheel drive, the EV is equipped with a twin engine that produces 408 hp and 660 Nm. According to WLTP (World Harmonized Light Duty Vehicle Testing Process), it has a range of 418 km. The new XC40 Recharge models consists of two electric motors, one to drive the front wheels and the second to power the rear wheels, providing full-time for four-wheel drive experience. The powertrain develops 402 hp and propels the XC40 Recharge to 60 mph in as minimum as 4.3 seconds.

Battery of Volvo XC40 Recharge

A 75.0 kWh battery is the standard battery pack on new Volvo XC40 recharge which has given the XC40 an estimated range of 223 miles per full charge. That promise of range puts the XC40 Recharge in a position to compete with the Audi etron and Jaguar I Pace, but puts it at a disadvantage against the Model Y, which is capable of more than 300 miles per charge.

The XC40 Recharge will be able to charge on DC fast charging stations available on different places as well as on home wall chargers through a 240-volt outlet.

Infotainment and connectivity of Volvo XC40 Recharge

Volvo XC40 Recharge provides a new generation of software developed in collaboration with Google’s Android Automotive, rather than using Volvo’s current Sensus Connect infotainment system. The Volvo version suffers from small on-screen buttons that are difficult to press while driving. The standard 12.3- inch digital instrument cluster offers multiple customization options. Despite its collaboration with Google, the new infotainment system will ultimately offer connectivity options for both Android and Apple iPhone devices. A wireless smartphone charging pad is also provided.

Interior, Comfort and Cargo capacity of Volvo XC40 Recharge

The XC40 Recharge’s cabin offers everything we love about the standard XC40, including thoughtful storage, a comfortable driving position, and roomy first and second rows. During the transition to an EV powertrain, the XC40 hasn’t lost any cargo space, so we’d expect the Recharge model to accommodate the same amount of luggage space as the gas-powered version. In our tests, the XC40 accommodated 23 trunks with the rear seats folded. In addition, the absence of a 4-cylinder engine under the hood frees up space for the front trunk (frunk), which is ideal for storing the XC40 Recharge’s charging cables.

Safety and driver assistance functions

Volvo will offer a range of high-tech driver assistance features as standard, including automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. For more information on the XC40 Recharge crash test results, visit the websites of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Key safety features of Volvo XC 40 Recharge includes:

-Automatic Braking (EMERGENCY BRAKING) as standard with pedestrian and cyclist detection

-Standard lane departure warning with lane assist

-Adaptive cruise control which comes standard with semi-autonomous driving mode and make driver easier to cruise on long lengthy roads.

Pricing of XC40 Recharge

XC40 Recharge have three different models and each models are slightly upgraded version of its lower one. The pricing of XC40 Recharge are:

Models Price Tag
TWIN $53,000
TWIN PLUS $57,000
TWIN ULTIMATE $60,000

The XC40 Recharge comes in three versions, but we’ll go for the charged Twin Ultimate model, which isn’t much more expensive than the mid-range Twin Plus and comes with a bunch of extra equipment. Twin Ultimate features unique 20-inch wheels, automatic high beams, a Harman/Kardon stereo system, adaptive cruise control, and a semi-autonomous driving mode.

Overview of Volvo XC40 Recharge

With a whopping 402hp of power and instantaneous torque of two electric motors, the Volvo XC40 Recharge 2023 is an eco-friendly SUV with blazing fast speeds. In addition to the electric powertrain, the XC40 Recharge is as practical and thoughtfully designed as a petrol model, with ample cargo space, smart storage space and a premium look suitable for the electric vehicle segment (Luxurious).

The Volvo looks better and offers better build quality than the Tesla Model Y, but its range isn’t as impressive.

A host of desirable convenience and safety features are standard, including a semi-autonomous driving mode, but we weren’t convinced by Volvo’s new Google-based infotainment interface. Still, we think the XC40 Recharge is a good choice for most buyers who want to go electric in a tasteful way.

Looking at all the features packed on the all new VOLVO XC40 Recharge, we can say that it will be one of the best seller on the European country whereas it won’t be sold in huge number in Asian country like Nepal, India and so on as other electric SUV like Audi E Tron MG ZS EV & TATA Nexon are the one which are on budget segment with great features.
