Volvo has confirmed that by the year 2030, all of its vehicles will be electrified. Additionally, the company has stated that it will solely provide electric cars in India. The Volvo C40 Recharge coupe SUV will be the company’s next electric vehicle, and it is expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year. The XC40 Recharge and the Volvo C40 share a common architectural foundation. The C40 Recharge will be assembled at the company’s production facility in Bengaluru before being shipped to our shores via the CKD route. With the launch of the C40 Recharge, the automaker will gain more market share in the luxury EV sector.
Volvo C40 Recharge Interior:
The interior of the forthcoming Volvo C40 Recharge is the same as the XC40. But it has a unique set of distinctions. Because the automaker chooses to keep the C40 Recharge eco-friendly, it is the first vehicle from the brand to do without leather inside. It sports an extensive infotainment system in portrait orientation from the XC40 Recharge.
Volvo C40 Recharge: Performance
There are two powertrain choices available globally. The single motor configuration promises a maximum output of 231 hp and 330 Nm and a stated range of 430 km with a 67 kWh battery pack. The maximum outputs of the dual-motor combination are 408 horsepower and 660 Nm. It has a claimed range of 433 kilometres and employs a 75 kWh battery pack.
Volvo C40 Recharge: Design
When looking directly at the front of the Volvo C40 Recharge, the XC40 Recharge resembles it very much. It has angular headlamps with LED DRLs that resemble Thor’s hammer. The SUV also has huge 5-spoke alloy wheels, and ORVMs installed on the doors. Contrary to the XC40’s boxy look, it boasts an interesting coupe-like profile. For aesthetic purposes, the roofing slopes downward at the back.
