The full electric C40 Recharge has Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play built in.

A fully charged battery gives you a projected range of up to 420km/210 miles* in mixed driving before you need to recharge. But your real-world range is also affected by your driving style and other circumstances, such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Other factors that impact range include how much electricity you use for car functions such as heating and cooling of the car.

* Range is calculated according to the realistic WLTP and EPA driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.

With Google Maps built in, you can get useful information for your electric vehicle. You can find your car’s battery level on arrival, get important battery alerts, and find compatible charging stations directly from your car’s centre display or via a smartphone app.

The C40 Recharge is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery’s projected range of up to 420km/210 miles* helps you do so without worrying about range. If you need to charge during the journey, you can do so at an AC charging station or DC fast-charging station. At a 150 kW DC fast charging station, it’s possible to charge the battery from zero to 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes (or around 80-100 km range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.

You will find the fastest charging at a DC fast-charging station along the route. To charge as fast as possible, we recommend limiting the car's charging level to 80 per cent. This helps keep your charging times short because the last 20 per cent of charging takes the longest time. So, charging the battery from zero to 80 per cent with a 150kW DC fast charger takes only around 40 minutes. But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery up to 100 per cent using the settings in the car’s centre display.

The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at your home. For regular charging at home, we recommend a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox. This installation can give you approximately 8 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent), or around 50-60km range per hour. When charging at stations outside your home, the most probable situations are that you will top the battery during shorter periods of time, for example from 40 per cent to 80 per cent (11 kW AC gives around 50-60 km range per hour). And on longer trips, you may charge the car using fast-charging DC stations. At a 150 kW DC charging station, you can charge the battery from zero to around 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes (or around 80-100 km range in 10 minutes). Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal. The standard home charging cable with a household connector is primarily an auxiliary cable. Charging an empty battery to 100 per cent with this cable takes approximately 40-72 hours depending on market, at a charge rate of about 7-14km range per hour.

Please note: Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

The standard-fitted home charging cable is primarily designed as an auxiliary cable for household applications. For considerably faster and more convenient charging at home, we recommend installing a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox.

Please note: the availability of charging equipment may vary depending on market.

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to petrol or diesel. The lowered fuel cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car. And for even lower costs, you can pre-set your full electric C40 Recharge to charge at the times when the tariffs are the lowest, often at night.

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is 8 years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with our recommendations.

If the battery or a battery module needs to be replaced, this can be done just like any other technical part of the car.

The battery means there is 500kg of extra weight that needs to be addressed in an impact – for the car's occupants as well as for other vehicles. The battery also needs separate protection to avoid harmful leakage after a collision. By utilising a range of innovative safety solutions, our safety engineers have designed the C40 Recharge to meet all these challenges.

The electric motors are sealed for life and maintenance-free. So, compared to a combustion engine-propelled car, the full electric C40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.

This new headlight technology makes it possible to drive with full beam all the time. When the car’s camera detects other vehicles, each headlight unit's 84 Pixel LEDs can shade out up to five vehicles at the same time. This can help you avoid dazzling other drivers while lighting up the road ahead efficiently. When unlocking the car, these headlights will also perform a welcoming light sequence together with the LED rear lights.

Smart battery design means all occupants have as much space as in an ordinary car. This also gives uncompromised versatility and smart storage solutions. The rear load compartment capacity is 413 litres including the compartment under the load floor. The battery encroaches on the space below the load floor, but this is to a large extent compensated by the front load compartment under the hood, which offers space for charging cables and other items you don't need so often but still want to have easily accessible if the load compartment is full.

We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That’s why the C40 Recharge can tow up to 1,500 kg/2,000 lb.

Over the average lifetime of a vehicle, the carbon footprint of a fully electric vehicle (BEV) is less than a traditional internal combustion engine vehicle (ICE). However, the distance needed to be driven for a BEV to become less carbon intensive than an ICE vehicle is largely dependent on how the electricity that power the vehicle is generated. If you charge your BEV with renewable electricity, you will need to drive less for that point to be reached, compared with if you use electricity generated from fossil fuels. Where possible, we encourage you to power your electric vehicle with electricity from renewable sources.

We are committed to full transparency when it comes to the full carbon impact of our electric vehicles and a lifecycle analysis (LCA) of the C40 Recharge will be available later in 2021.

We are committed to full traceability and transparency of our battery supply chain, helping to ensure that our customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly. We were the first automotive manufacturer to introduce blockchain technology across our entire cobalt supply chain. Blockchain, in conjunction with inspection on mine sites, GPS tracking, entry and exit scanning, verified logistics providers, facial recognition, ID checks, and time tracking, all significantly boost the traceability of cobalt from the mine to the car factory.

We are committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals and metals and fully support the OECD Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-affected and High-risk Areas. We require our battery suppliers to fully support this commitment. Sustainability performance is a key consideration when assessing and selecting our suppliers. We monitor the performance of existing suppliers and follow up with third party audits. We also put requirements on our battery suppliers to minimise carbon emissions during production processes, including through the use of renewable energy. All our suppliers have to agree to the Volvo Cars' Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which includes the observation of human rights, including labour rights.
