The Volvo C40 Recharge is powered by two electric motors, one on each axle, for a combined power output of 402 bhp and 660 Nm of torque. The electric coupe SUV can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 180 kmph. Power goes to all four wheels via all-wheel drive (AWD). While Volvo sells a rear-wheel drive version globally, India gets the higher-spec version of the model. 

 

 The C40 Recharge looks identical to the XC40 Recharge in design. The Thor’s Hammer LED DRLs and closed-off grille look familiar, but the big change is the receding roofline from the B-pillar onwards. The rear also sports a raked windscreen aimed to give a stylish look to the electric SUV. The model also gets a redesigned tailgate and taillights that are slimmer and have a wraparound effect with new reverse lights.

The cabin remains identical as well, with a well-appointed layout comprising all the bells and whistles. The model gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, heated and ventilated front seats, vegan interiors, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and wireless charging. The infotainment system runs an Android-based infotainment system with direct access to Google Maps and Assistant and several apps from the Play Store. 
 

There’s also a 360-degree camera, ADAS tech with autonomous driving, dual-zone climate control, and a Harman Kardon sound system. The boot capacity is down from 452 litres on the XC40 Recharge to 413 litres on the C40 Recharge. 

 

Volvo claims a range of 530 km on a single charge from the 78 kWh battery pack. The battery can be charged in 8 hours using an 11 kW AC charger or in 27 minutes from 10-80 per cent using a DC fast charger. The Volvo C40 Recharge takes on the BMW iX1, Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Mercedes-Benz EQB, and more in the segment.
