The new XC40 Recharge is based on the same Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform as the regular XC40 SUV

Like the regular XC40, the XC40 Recharge is also built on the company's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform. Except for some of the visual markings that signify its electric nature, the rest of the elements are very similar to the XC40. Upfront, it gets a white-finished panel instead of a grille that houses the Volvo badge and the new alloy wheels are also new. Much like the Tesla cars, the XC40 Recharge also gets a frunk at the front that offers a small storage space of 31 litres.
