Volvo were one of the first manufacturers to make a bold commitment to designing all their new cars as hybrids, plug-in hybrids and electric cars from 2019.

Volvo have had a number of plug-in hybrids available for some time, but the XC40 Recharge is the brand’s first venture into an all electric drivetrain. Lots of SUV body type EVs have been released in the last year. The Hyundai Kona, Mercedes EQC and Audi E-tron (to name just a few) joined the Tesla Model X which had been in a lonely electric SUV category of it’s own until 2019! So the XC40 Recharge is in good company.
The XC40 Recharge has an official WLTP rating of 264 miles range. We anticipate this EV will achieve a “real-world” driving range of around 230 miles per charge. If you’re curious about EV range take a look at our helpful guide: “Electric vehicle range: everything you need to know”
