Meet the Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric SUV

Volvo's All-New Pure Electric Crossover is Coming Soon to Volvo Cars Princeton

Gasoline has carried cars far in the 130+ years since the first production automobile hit the streets. Still, the internal combustion engine's inherent efficiency limitations and collective greenhouse gas emissions have demonstrated the need for an alternative fuel source. Fortunately, the automotive landscape is evolving, with battery technologies continually improving and hybrid/EV popularity swiftly expanding with each new year. Automobility's destiny is electric, and Volvo is leading the way in the luxury segment with its Recharge lineup of plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and pure-electric (EV) cars and SUVs.

The transition to a more sustainable automotive future is a natural evolution for Volvo. And with the Recharge lineup, the automaker aims to field a lineup that is 50% EV and 50% PHEV by 2025. Volvo's initial pure-electric model was the XC40 Recharge small luxury crossover. And coming soon for 2022, the all-new Volvo C40 Recharge will be Volvo's first model not offered with a gasoline powertrain.

The 2022 C40 Recharge is scheduled to begin sales in late-2021/early-2022, but Trenton-area drivers near Morrisville, PA, and Hamilton, NJ, can reserve one for themselves today at Volvo Cars Princeton, in Lawrenceville.

Volvo C40 Recharge: Performance, Range, and Charging

Pop the Volvo C40's front hood, and you'll find…extra storage space-great for keeping items like a charging cable. Instead, the Volvo C40 is set in motion by a pair of electric motors, one on each axle, generating a combined AWD output of 402 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. And if you mash the accelerator pedal, the C40's near-instantaneous torque delivery will carry you from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.7 seconds.

To power the electric motors, the Volvo C40 employs a 75-kWh battery pack, giving the fastback crossover an estimated emissions-free driving range of 210 miles. With a Level 2 (240-volt, 11-kW) charger, the C40 Recharge can refill its battery from empty to full overnight (approx. 8 hours), adding around 25 miles of range per hour. And using 150-kW fast charging equipment, like what's often found at highway rest stops, you can add 50-60 miles per 10 minutes and charge the battery 80% in only 40 minutes.

Additionally, all 2022 Volvo pure-electric models come with 250 kWh of free charging on the Electrify America network. And when you've used the full 250 kWh within the first three years, Volvo will then cover Electrify America Pass+ membership fees for one year.


Volvo C40 Recharge: Accommodations and Versatility

Like all Volvo models, the C40 Recharge offers a luxurious interior that prioritizes refinement. The upscale cabin features a Swedish-minimalist-inspired aesthetic, with a streamlined layout, premium materials, seamlessly integrated technology, and intriguing design elements like backlit door and dash topographical panels and a standard panoramic glass sunroof. You don't even need a start button, as the C40 automatically senses when the key fob is in the car, allowing you to simply shift into drive and go. Additionally, the Volvo C40 utilizes a wide range of sustainable materials and is 100% leather-free.

The 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge provides spacious accommodations for five, with plenty of headroom and legroom no matter where you sit. Behind the rear seats, the C40 retains 14.6 cubic feet for your luggage or groceries. And with the second row folded down, the available cargo space expands to 47.4 cubic feet.

Volvo C40 Recharge: Technology and Safety

Google's innovative Android Automotive operating system replaces Volvo's Sensus system in the C40's 9-inch vertically-oriented central touchscreen. The new OS enables over-the-air updates, ensuring you always have access to the latest software. Plus, Google Assistant allows you to safely and intuitively operate many features and functions via "Hey, Google" voice commands. iPhone users needn't worry, as they're fully supported as well. The new infotainment system features the latest iteration of Apple CarPlay.

The Volvo C40 also comes standard with a full suite of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies, including:

  • Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system with adaptive cruise control and lane-centering
  • Volvo City Safety collision mitigation
  • BLIS™ (Blind Spot Information System) with Steer Assist
  • Lane Keeping Aid
  • Road Sign Information
  • Steering-adaptive Pixel LED headlights with automatic high beams
