XC40 Recharge Pure Electric plugs into showrooms

Enjoy both power and responsible driving with the first fully electric Volvo that becomes a new flagship for the XC40 SUV range – and a standard-bearer for the brand’s future.
The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric, Volvo’s first ever fully electric vehicle, is now available to order in Australia.
The Recharge Pure Electric is available in a single, top-level specification that makes it the most comprehensively equipped model grade, befitting its status as the new flagship of Volvo Cars’ hugely successful XC40 compact luxury SUV range.
An impressive drivetrain specification also accompanies the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.
The vehicle combines a 78kWh battery with dual electric motors for all-wheel drive and outputs of 300kW and 660Nm that make the Pure Electric the fastest and most powerful model in the XC40 line-up.
It can accelerate from 0-100km/h in less than five seconds.
The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric offers an emissions-free driving range of up to 418km*.
A dedicated wallbox device is recommended for convenient charging at home, while, when out travelling, the battery can be charged up to 80 per cent in just 40 minutes using fast charging**.

Even with just a 50 per cent charge, the Pure Electric has an estimated range of more than 200km**.
And to help you enjoy a more relaxed journey, the vehicle’s integrated route planner can notify you of a need to charge before power runs low. It also recommends when and where to charge.
Two exclusive colours are available for the fully electric XC40: Sage Green and Crystal White. Both are no-cost alternatives to a range of metallic paints that are standard.
Standard exterior features for the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric include a panoramic glass sunroof, tinted rear windows, LED headlights, and 20-inch 5-double-spoke Black Diamond Cut alloy wheels.

Inside, the Pure Electric’s standard specification is elevated with heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, power folding rear headrests, and a 360-degree surround-view camera.
The upholstery is finished in charcoal accented leather, and additional cabin embellishments include Cutting Edge décor inlays, high-level illumination, sports pedals, and ‘Recharge’ treadplates.
Carpeting made entirely from recycled plastic showcases the use of sustainable materials that help reduce the Pure Electric’s environmental impact.

The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric features an advanced infotainment system that is presented via a distinctive, 9.0-inch portrait-format touchscreen and features include fully integrated Google Maps, Google Assistant*** with hands-free voice control, real-time traffic information, digital radio, and a superb-sounding Harman Kardon audio system.
The Pure Electric is also designed to start receiving automatic over-the-air updates. Once available, you’ll enjoy a car that gets better all the time and is always up to date.
There’s also all the same ingenious practicality that has made the Volvo XC40 a multi-award-winning SUV.
In addition to smart storage solutions for drinks bottles, gym bags, smartphones, laptops, take-away food and much more, the Pure Electric takes advantage of the absence of an internal combustion engine to provide a front ‘frunk’ compartment for your charging cables.
The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is the future of Volvo that you can drive now. From 2030, every Volvo sold will be a fully electric vehicle.
