Volvo unveils the XC40 Recharge EV in India

Pre-bookings for the XC40 Recharge will open from June 2021 and deliveries will commence in October.

Volvo has unveiled the XC40 Recharge in India. The electric SUV will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU).

Pre-bookings for the XC40 Recharge will open from June 2021 and deliveries will commence in October.

The XC40 Recharge is based on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform. The car looks very similar to the XC40 crossover, except that it gets a blanked out front grille. It has a 31 litre storage space under bonnet, since it doesn't have a conventional engine.

The XC40 Recharge uses two 150 kW electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles. The combined output is 408 BHP and 660 Nm. Volvo claims that the car does 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, while its top speed is limited to 180 km/h.

The electric motors are powered by a 78 kWh battery that is claimed to offer a maximum range of around 418 km. The battery can be recharged from 10% to 80% in 40 minutes using a fast charger.
