The XC40 Recharge will be available in a single fully-loaded trim, just like its petrol-powered counterpart. It will be offered with a 78kWh battery pack and a certified driving range of 418 kilometres (WLTP claimed). The all-electric Volvo will get a dual electric motor setup, rated at 408PS and 660Nm. It’s all-wheel drivetrain allows it to sprint from zero to 100kmph in just 4.9 seconds. With a 150kW fast charger, the electric SUV can be juiced up to 80 percent in just 40 minutes. 

Talking about the exterior and interior changes, the XC40 Recharge gets some EV-specific elements over the petrol-counterpart, like a closed grille and different alloy wheels. It will feature the Thor’s Hammer-style LED headlamps, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, wireles charging, a 12-inch digital driver’s display, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment, and a 14-speaker sound system.

The XC40 Recharge’s safety suite will include multiple airbags, a 360-degree camera and ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), with lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring.

Earlier leaked prices suggest that the Volvo XC40 Recharge will cost around Rs 75 lakh (ex-showroom). However, with local assembly, we’re expecting to be considerably more affordable and better value for money. It will find an indirect but price-related competition with the Kia EV6 and BMW i4.
