The figures are based on EPA data obtained under specific testing conditions for C40 Recharge twin. The real-life driving range and energy consumption achieved under real conditions varies depending on driving behaviour and other external factors. Charging figures are based on preliminary target for DC fast charging (150 kW). Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

Express yourself. Contemporary design and a leather free interior set the tone inside the C40 Recharge.

What do you want to know about the C40 Recharge pure electric?

Yes, the car interior contains no leather whatsoever.

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

Yes. All data is included for up to four years. This includes both for navigation and voice assistant, as well as downloading and running any type of apps (e.g. music streaming). After this period, the service can be extended as a subscription.

Yes, up to four years of access to the services are included. After that you can buy a continuation of the subscription if you wish to continue using all the services included.

A subscription lasts up to four years. If the car is new, this period starts on the retail delivery date. The subscription is linked to the car, so in the event of the car being sold, any remaining subscription time is passed on to the next owner/user.

Your real-world range is 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. One way to improve range is to pre-condition your car during charging so it’s already at a comfortable temperature when you go.

The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at your home. The standard home charging cable with a household connector (120V Oulet) 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 7–14 km range per hour.

For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend an 11 kW wallbox. This installation can give you approximately 7-8 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent), or around 50–60 km 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 10 to around 80 per cent in approximately 37 minutes (or around 80–100 km range in 10 minutes). Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal.

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

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 pure 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 eight years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ 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.

This pure electric compact SUV is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery’s high capacity helps you to 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 10 to 80 per cent in approximately 37 minutes depending on battery (or around 80–100 km range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.*

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

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 pure electric C40 Recharge twin can tow up to 900kg.

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 11 kW wallbox.

You will find the fastest charging at a DC fast-charging station along the route. To charge as fast as possible, we recommend you to limit 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 10 to 80 per cent at a 150kW DC fast-charger takes only around 37 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.

* Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

In countries where Google Maps includes charging stations, you can find public charging stations direct from the map in the car’s centre display or via a smartphone app. From here you can also select preferred charging stations and get guidance.

The battery means there is 500 kg 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, Volvo Cars’ 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 pure electric C40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.

Over the 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 only 49,000km for that point to be reached, compared with 110,000km if you use electricity generated from the global average electricity mix. 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 carbon impact of our electric vehicles and a lifecycle assessment (LCA) of the C40 Recharge can be found here.

Volvo Cars is committed to full traceability, helping to ensure that our customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the raw material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly. The introduction of blockchain technology significantly boosts traceability within our 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 contribute to a material’s traceability from a mine to the car factory.

Volvo Cars works closely with our suppliers to increase the sustainability of our products and services, including through securing responsible supply chains and making efficient use of resources. 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. In this respect, we require our battery suppliers to support our commitment to have full transparency of our cobalt supply chain and to work towards full traceability.

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 the 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.
