Unprecedented Design

The Volvo C40 is the first vehicle from Volvo Cars to be available exclusively as an electric vehicle. The brand's other electric vehicle is the Volvo XC40 Recharge SUV, but that vehicle also comes in a version with a conventional combustion engine.

The Volvo C40 Recharge will be similar to the Volvo XC40 but will employ more coupe-like styling. This means it will have the capability of an SUV but will have a low and sleek design aesthetic that makes it look more like a lifestyle vehicle. We know this vehicle will turn heads with its low roofline, unique taillights, and aerodynamic spoiler.


The front of the Volvo C40 Recharge will look entirely different than anything we've seen from the brand before. It has a new face, including headlights with brand new pixel technology. The doors have concave angles. The black roof will provide a great contrast to whatever exterior color you choose. The rumored colors are Silver Dawn, Crystal White, Sage Green, Thunder Grey, Black Stone, Fjord Blue, and Fusion Red. No matter what you choose, this sleek and unique crossover will look just as cool as the Batmobile.

Power & Range

Volvo Cars is known for making their electric vehicles and Volvo plug-in hybrids incredibly high powered. This negates any doubts that driving green means driving weak or slow. Twin electric motors can be found in the front and rear of the Volvo C40 Recharge. The power will come from a 78kWh battery and will provide 408 horsepower. That is more than you can say for many turbocharged, gas-powered SUVs. You will feel the acceleration the second you press the pedal. Automotive experts who tested the Volvo C40 Recharge 0-60 time say it takes less than five seconds. Vroom vroom!

This SUV can also receive over-the-air updates that tell you information about your 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge range. The current estimates for the range are about 210 miles, but those aren't official yet. Charging is simple with the wide network of electric car charging stations. You can always charge with a regular wall outlet or installed charger at home. If you choose to use a DC Fast-Charging station, you can get 80% charged in just 40 minutes.
