Starting the vehicle

To start the vehicle, one of its keys must be inside the vehicle.


Before starting:

  • Buckle your seat belt.
  • Adjust the seat, steering wheel and mirrors.
  • Make sure you can fully depress the brake pedal.
Make sure the key is in the vehicle.
Fasten your seat belt.
Depress the brake pedal.
Put the gear selector in position D or R.
The vehicle is now in drive mode.
Release the brake pedal.

If regenerative braking is activated, the vehicle will not move forward, but could begin rolling away if the ground is leaning in the same direction as the selected gear position.

If regenerative braking is deactivated, the vehicle will drive slowly in the selected direction if the accelerator pedal is pressed lightly.


  • Never use more than one inlay mat at a time on the driver's floor. If any other type of floor mat is used, remove the original mat from the driver's seat floor before driving. All types of mats must be securely anchored in the attachment points in the floor. Make sure the floor mat does not impede the movement of the brake pedal or accelerator pedal in any way, as this could be a serious safety hazard.
  • Volvo's floor mats are specially manufactured for your vehicle. They must be properly secured in the attachment points in the floor to help ensure they cannot slide and become trapped under the pedals.


The vehicle cannot be started if the charging cable is still plugged in. Make sure that the charging cable is removed and the charger cover is closed before starting the vehicle.
