Seating and cargo capacity

5 seats

All five occupants will appreciate the comfort of an ergonomically designed seat. The easily adjustable front seats make it easy to find the perfect seating position. Further enhancing the versatility of your Volvo, the rear seat is easy to fold individually into the load area floor so you can transport passengers and/or cargo without compromising either comfort or safety.

413 l load compartment space

With the rear seats up, the load compartment has enough space below the load cover for two suitcases 750mm long, 520mm wide and 310mm high.

Boost load compartment space to 1,205 l

Fold down the rear seats for optimal luggage capacity – and with a flat load floor and no lip to lift items over, larger objects are easier to load and unload. A foldable floor acts as a handy divider to hold shopping bags secure as well as enabling hidden, lockable underfloor storage.

Front load compartment

This convenient front load compartment provides smart extra storage in your pure electric Volvo Recharge. It's the perfect space to keep your charging cables easily accessible and well protected from dirt, dust and moisture. It also frees up valuable space from the rear load compartment. The front load compartment has two sections: an upper section for items such as charging cables or washer fluid bottles, and a lower section dedicated to storage of a puncture repair kit. The two sections are divided by an easily removable load floor.

Environmental Classification


Lifecycle carbon footprint

We believe in being transparent about the full carbon impact of our fully electric vehicles. So, we have conducted and published a lifecycle assessment (LCA) of our C40 Recharge twin. The LCA includes all carbon emissions involved in producing the vehicle (including supplier activities, manufacturing and logistics), as well as 200,000km of use. Over its lifetime, a C40 Recharge twin has a lower carbon impact than a petrol-powered Volvo XC40, irrespective of the charging electricity mix (global, EU or wind). However, the electricity source used when charging the C40 Recharge has a significant impact on its total carbon emissions. Whenever possible, we encourage you to charge using renewable electricity.
