The new Plus variant is positioned as an entry-level variant.


The XC40 Recharge Plus is equipped with a single motor powering the rear wheels, generating a peak output of 238 bhp and 420 Nm of torque. Accelerating from 0-100 kmph in 7.3 seconds, the Plus variant trails behind the ‘Ultimate’ variant’s 4.8-second 0-100 kmph sprint time, while both variants share a top speed of 180 kmph.


Despite featuring a smaller 69 kWh battery pack compared to the Ultimate’s 78 kWh, the XC40 Plus boasts a range of up to 475 kilometres on a single charge, as per WLTP cycle standards. Moreover, this new variant also undercuts the Ultimate trim by nearly Rs 3 lakh. However, it also misses out on some features.

It undercuts the higher variant nearly by Rs 3 lakh.


Prominent differences in equipment include the absence of fog lamps, 'Pixel LED' headlights (replaced with standard LED headlights), 360-degree cameras (substituted with a reverse camera), and power child safety locks. Additionally, side parking assist and the 13-speaker Harman Kardon sound system are replaced by an eight-speaker setup.


Volvo recently announced changes to its vehicle naming and nomenclature system. The biggest change under this revised scheme is discontinuing the ‘Recharge’ sub-brand from its all-electric and plug-in hybrid model line-up. Overseas, the XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge will now be branded EX40 and EC40 respectively. The new naming scheme will be implemented across all global markets for Volvo, though for now Volvo Cars India will continue to use the existing names for the XC40 and C40 EVs.
