Activating and deactivating recirculation

The climate system's recirculation function helps shut out smog, smoke, exhaust fumes, etc. by reusing the air in the passenger compartment.

Tap the temperature button in the middle at the bottom of the center display to open Climate view.

P6-XC40BEV-2037–Climate–Button recirculation

Tap the air recirculation button.

Air recirculation is activated/deactivated and the button lights up/goes out.


If the air in the vehicle is recirculated too long, there is a risk of fogging on the inside of the windows.


Recirculation cannot be activated when the max defroster is on.


If the system's air quality sensors detect contaminants in the outside air, the air intake closes and air circulation activates automatically.
