Charging time

The following charging times are approximate and apply when air conditioning or any other consumer is not affecting charging. Charging time may also vary depending on battery size. If charging time seems considerably longer, it should be investigated.


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

In order to improve charging performance during fast charging, the battery is preconditioned when the destination in Google Maps is set at a fast charging station.


  • It may take longer to charge the high voltage battery in cold or hot weather. Part of the charging current is then used to heat/cool the high voltage battery.
  • If preconditioning is selected, the charging time may be affected.
  • Fast charging at up to 200 kW10 power output is possible in good conditions for high voltage battery and charging station. The charging power is limited towards the end of fast charging.
  1. 1 Applies to charging using a 200-240 V socket.
  2. 2 Maximum charging current may vary depending on market.
  3. 3 The maximum charging power that the car can achieve is 11 kW.
  4. 4 From 0–100%
  5. 5 Standard range.
  6. 6 Extended range.
  7. 7 Maximum power that the charging station can supply.
  8. 8 Applies at 10–80% state of charge (SoC) provided that the temperature of the battery is approximately 35°C (95°F).
  9. 9 Does not apply to Morocco and Egypt, where it is 37 minutes.
  10. 10 Charging power may vary depending on battery variant and market.
