XC40 Recharge Pure Electric

This compact crossover is the first ever all-electric model from Volvo and it is just the beginning of what we have to offer. With over 200 miles of range, 402 horsepower, and the ability to charge to 80 percent in just 40 minutes, it proves to be a bright first step in the future of Volvo cars.

How Does a Pure Electric Car Work?

With a plug-in battery and no gasoline on board, a pure electric car might seem unrealistic - until you experience what Volvo has to offer.

Dual-Motor Capability

Rather than using a single electric motor, the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric uses a pair of 201-horsepower electric motors to deliver both rapid acceleration, smooth cruising, and greater range.

Regenerative Braking

Regenerative braking is one place where electric vehicles gain a huge advantage over combustion engines. When slowing or braking, forward momentum is transferred back into the battery to extend range while you're on the move.

A Powerful Battery

The 78kWh battery inside the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric offers over 200 miles of range and can be charged to 80 percent in under 40 minutes. An at-home charger is also available for added convenience, and the battery can operate climate controls without the electric motors being switched on, so it works to keep you comfortable as well.

How long can I drive before I recharge the battery?

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric offers over 200 miles of range on a single charge, however terrain, towing, cargo, and other factors may affect that total. The good news for you is that the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric can anticipate range based on your planned route, so using Google Maps even for destinations you are familiar with will help you better understand your range expectations.

Your range will vary depending on driving conditions, how you drive and maintain your vehicle, battery-package/condition, and other factors. **Fast charging DC up to 150 kW. Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

What charging times can I expect when charging at home?

With several at-home charging solutions available, charge times have a wide range. The most basic at-home charger will take roughly 24 hours, while the Volvo Wallbox will charge from empty to 80 percent in around 5.5 hours.

How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

This is truly dependent on where you are located so it is hard to know precisely, however it is typically less expensive per mile than gasoline. You can even supercharge your savings by charging at off-peak times like overnight.

Can I use a pure electric car for long distance driving?

With over 200 miles of range and fast-charging that gives you 80 percent of full range in just 40 minutes, the new Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is easily capable of handling your long-distance journeys.
