2023 Volvo XC40 Release Date

The 2023 Volvo XC40 will be available as an all-electric vehicle and a mild-hybrid SUV. We anticipate a slew of upgrades to the Volvo XC40 for this coming year, including two new powertrains, a redesigned steering wheel, and premium leather-free upholstery. The redesign promises to make this fantastic and economical vehicle even more compelling.

Whether you're interested in the excellent Volvo XC40 Recharge all-electric SUV or the mild-hybrid version that still uses gasoline, this page will be useful. We will discuss the specs of the respective vehicles, what we can expect from the interior, and more. As for the release date, we think we'll see the 2023 Volvo XC40 available in Fall 2022.

2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge

The 2023 Volvo XC40 pure electric vehicle will feature a 75-kWh battery pack mated to a pair of electric motors. One motor powers the front wheels and the other the rear set, lending the vehicle full-time all-wheel drive. This configuration outputs up to 402 horsepower. Electric cars can output instant torque, which differs from traditional automobile engines that have to spin up. This difference means you can leap off the starting line in the Volvo XC40, passing folks with ease.

The Volvo XC40 Recharge can help you and your family save at the pump with its incredible all-electric driving range. According to the EPA, it can go up to 223 miles on a single charge.1 You'll be able to run errands all over town without worrying about your battery. If you're ready to drive one of these slick vehicles today without waiting for the 2023 release, then it's time to lease a Volvo XC40 from 2022 with the same range.1

2023 Volvo XC40 Specs

The 2023 Volvo XC40 redesign will turn the formerly gasoline-only SUV into a hybrid. Volvo Cars is adding a battery-and-motor system to the gasoline engine that powered the 2022 version of this sleek vehicle. Drivers will find two options for the 2023 model year, the B4 and B5 powertrains. The B4 pairs a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with the battery-and-motor system. This configuration will make 194 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.

The B5 powertrain adds a supercharger to the B4 setup. This upgraded mild-hybrid SUV will get 247 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Both the B4 and B5 models of the 2023 Volvo XC40 will feature an eight-speed automatic transmission. B4 models come with front-wheel drive, while B5 versions have standard all-wheel drive. Both options will easily propel this SUV down the road, allowing you to pass anyone holding up traffic on the highway.

As a contrast, the Volvo XC60 is a size class up from the Volvo XC40. It still has two rows but offers more cargo space. The trade-off between the two lies in the fact that the Volvo XC40 is more maneuverable and competitively priced; the Volvo XC60 is also not available as an all-electric vehicle. If you'd like to learn more about the Volvo XC60, then check out this page where we compare the Volvo XC40 to the Volvo XC60.

Both versions of the Volvo XC40 feature an expansive suite of safety technology. Every model has automated emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning. We also expect that the top-tier trims will likely offer adaptive cruise control and an autonomous driving mode to keep you and your family safe on the road.

2023 Volvo XC40 Interior

While the new Volvo XC40 and Volvo XC40 Recharge differ in their powertrains, they share a great deal when it comes to their interiors. The 2023 Volvo XC40 facelift will affect both of these vehicles. In addition to luxurious yet leather-free upholstery, the new versions of this SUV will now have a brand-new Google technological interface. This technology will let you control navigation and music smoothly.

The 2023 Volvo XC40 will have a spacious interior, just like the 2022 model. You and your passengers will be very comfortable in the front or back rows, especially if you opt for higher-tier trims with features like heated seats. The vehicle's rear seats fold down nicely, allowing you to carry a lot of cargo if you find yourself having to haul a lot. The Volvo XC40 offers versatility and style in one sleek package.

2023 Volvo XC40 Trim Levels

The new version of the Volvo XC40 SUV will have a completely redesigned slate of available trims for the 2023 model year. Gone are the Momentum and Inscription designations. The new trims are:

  • Core: The base model of this redesigned vehicle is full of features and comforts. It boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, an eight-speaker sound system, an auto-dimming interior mirror, roof rails, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Despite its status as the entry-level model, it has a luxury vehicle's features lineup.
  • Plus: The most notable feature of this trim level is the new theme choice. You'll choose between Dark and Bright when you purchase a Volvo XC40 Plus. Dark models have black exterior trim and interior stylings, while the Bright models have chrome on the exterior and a lighter color palette in the cabin. Both versions of the car have a panoramic sunroof, front parking sensors, and a universal garage door opener.
  • Ultimate: The Ultimate trim also offers drivers a choice between the Bright and Dark styles. On the features side, it boasts an air purification system, 19-inch wheels, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera. This technologically advanced SUV is sleek, luxurious, and safe. All of the trims offer great value for your money, but the Ultimate is the choice for folks who really value comfort.
