The Volvo C40 has all the benefits of an SUV but with a lower and
sleeker design. It is based on the CMA vehicle platform and the first
Volvo model in history designed as pure electric only.
Offering the benefits of an SUV, but with a lower and sleeker design. The rear of the C40 Recharge features a striking rear-end design to go with the lower roof line, while the new front design introduces a new face for electric Volvos and includes headlights with state-of-the-art pixel technology.

Inside, the C40 Recharge provides customers with the high seating position that most Volvo drivers prefer, while it is available with a range of colour and deco options unique to the model. It is also the first Volvo model to be completely leather-free.
Like the XC40 Recharge, the C40 Recharge comes with one of the best infotainment systems on the market, jointly developed with Google and based on the Android operating system. It provides consumers with Google apps and services built-in, such as Google Maps, Google Assistant and the Google Play Store*.
Unlimited data enables superior connectivity and the C40 Recharge will receive software updates over the air. That means it will continue to improve over time after it has left the factory.
Sometimes quiet is the most powerful way to go, with zero tailpipe
emissions and less noise at all speeds. Powered by a high-voltage
battery and dual electric motors, our C40 pure electric is
pure progress for the road ahead.
The propulsion consists of twin electric motors, one on the front and
one on the rear axle, powered by a 78kWh battery that can be
fast-charged from to 10-80 per cent in about 40 minutes. It offers an
anticipated range of around 440 km.
To make the most of the
battery life in a pure electric car, we recommend AC charging the
battery up to 90 percent capacity for typical daily driving, and
preferably not letting the charge fall below 20 percent. The car can
offer plenty of range for daily trips, and you'll likely only need to
top up the charge throughout the week.
With the C40 the charging time can depend on the type of charging you are undertaking. For example:
40 min – 2 h: With DC fast charging (50–150kW)
8 – 10 h: With 11kW AC fast charging/wallbox.
