Information on charging in the centre display

From the centre display it is possible to set the State Of Charge (SOC), unlock the charging cable, set amperage and schedule charging.

To access the charging view in the car's centre display, tap on iCup-2037-Settings symbol and then on Charging. The charging view in the centre display is also activated when charging is started.


Volvo strongly recommends against charging the car with an alternating current of 100–120 V in combination with an amperage below 10 A.

Setting the charge limit

  2. P5-Icon red circle 2Charge limit – Swipe to set a limit for the State Of Charge (SOC) at which the charging should be ended. The set value remains the same until it is changed again in the centre display.


Follow the recommendations regarding handling the high voltage battery in order to optimise its service life and performance.

Schedule charging

When charging with alternating current, it is possible to schedule charging and set start and stop times for when charging should take place. The scheduling is then repeated automatically at the same time each day.

iCup-22w22-BEV-Scheduled charging overview

Select ChargingSet timer in the centre display and then activate the scheduling with Schedule charging. Use the controls at iCup-22w22-BEV-Starting time scheduled charging and iCup-22w22-BEV-Ending time scheduled charging to set the desired start and stop time for charging.

Use the control at Schedule charging to deactivate scheduling of charging.

It is also possible to deactivate the charging schedule by:
Plug the charging cable into the car – the LED lamp by the car's charging input socket will illuminate in blue when the car is set to charge according to the set schedule.
Unplug the cable and immediately plug it back in (within 3 seconds).
The LED lamp by the car's charging input socket flashes/illuminates in green and the car is charged. The scheduled charging is now deactivated. To reactivate it, follow the instructions above.


The charging input socket's LED lamp indicates status for charging the high voltage battery and not whether the car is consuming power, such as when the climate control is in use. Even if the LED lamp indicates that charging has finished, or that scheduled charging is activated, the car may still draw current from the socket. To avoid affecting the car's range, current is firstly drawn from the socket and not the battery in order to supply any additional load from the car (such as parking heater, etc.).

Locking and unlocking the charging cable

Tap on Unlock cable in the centre display to unlock the charging cable and end the charging in progress. You can lock the cable into the charging input socket by tapping on Lock cable in the centre display. Charging is then resumed automatically when charging via wall socket/charging station (AC charging). Charging will not be resumed automatically during fast charging (DC charging).

Setting the amperage

iCup-23w08-Current limit
  1. P5-Icon red circle 1Set amperage.

When charging with alternating current1, it is possible to limit the maximum amperage the car can be charged with.

Select Charging and the arrow at Current limit (amps). Tap on + to increase the amperage or - to reduce the amperage2.

When charging with more than 1-phase, the set amperage per phase3 is shown in the driver display.


The amperage may be limited by the charging station, charging cable, or the car's high voltage system. There is no guarantee that the car can be charged with the specified amperage if it is higher than permitted by the charging station or charging cable.
  1. 1 Refers to charging via charging station (mode 3) and charging via wall socket (mode 2).
  2. 2 The set amperage applies per phase from the alternating current source.
  3. 3 Applies to certain markets.
