Fully Electric XC40 Sold out for 2021
Australian customers have embraced Volvo’s first ever fully electric vehicle, the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.
The first ever fully electric Volvo has achieved unprecedented success in Australia, with its 2021 allocation sold out prior to its launch.
Local customer response has been remarkable since Volvo Car Australia announced pricing and specifications for the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric mid-year.
Australians can be part of this phenomenon by placing their order now to secure a vehicle from the next round of deliveries arriving in early 2022.
The Recharge Pure Electric – the flagship model in the range of Volvo Cars’ highly successful compact SUV – is a milestone vehicle. Volvo Cars’ industry-leading electrification strategy will see its product line-up transition to all-electric vehicles from 2030.
The vast majority of vehicles in the Volvo Car Australia range are already powered by either mild-hybrid or plug-in hybrid drivetrains.
The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is powered by a 78kWh battery that feeds two electric motors producing 300kW and 660Nm combined. The all-wheel-drive compact luxury vehicle offers a generous maximum range of up to 418kW*.
It is also the first Volvo equipped with the company’s next-generation infotainment system.
Sales of the XC40 have increased by 56 per cent compared with this time last year. It is the best-selling Volvo locally so far in 2021 and continues to be one of the most popular vehicles in the compact luxury SUV segment.
Significant growth for all Volvo SUVs has placed Volvo Car Australia on course to set an annual sales record, in excess of 10,000 units.
Volvo is the fastest-growing luxury car brand in Australia.
