Battery charging and driving range
How long can I drive before I need to recharge the battery on the full electric C40 Recharge?

Volvo Cars estimates that a fully charged battery of C40 Recharge could deliver a projected range of up to 530km as per WLTP in mixed driving conditions (or up to 683km range as per ICAT in mixed driving condition).*

Real-world range is affected by your driving style and external factors like the outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Range is also affected by how much electricity you use for car functions like heating and cooling. One way to improve range is to pre-condition your car during charging, so the cabin has a comfortable temperature when you go.

* The figures are derived from estimates and calculations performed by Volvo Cars and these outcomes are not guaranteed. The real-life driving range and energy consumption achieved under real conditions varies depending on driving behaviour and other external factors. Vehicle certification pending.

What charging times can I expect when recharging at home?

The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at your home. The standard home charging cable with a household connector is primarily an auxiliary cable. Charging an empty battery to 100 per cent with this cable takes approximately 8-76 hours depending on market.

For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox. This installation can give you approximately 7-8 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent), or around 50–60 km range per hour.

Please note: Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

What equipment do I need to charge my pure electric C40 Recharge easily and safely at home?

The standard-fitted home charging cable is primarily designed as an auxiliary cable for household applications. For considerably faster and more convenient charging at home, we recommend installing a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox.

How much does it cost to charge the battery of the pure electric C40 Recharge?

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to petrol or diesel. The lowered fuel cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car.

Can I use the pure electric C40 Recharge for long-distance driving?

This pure electric SUV is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery’s high capacity helps you to do so without worrying about range. If you need to charge during the journey, you can do so at an AC charging station or DC fast-charging station. At a 150 kW DC fast charging station, it’s possible to charge the battery from 10 to 80 per cent in approximately 27 minutes (or around 80-100km range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.*

*Please note: Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

Which is the fastest way to charge my pure electric C40 Recharge on long journeys?

You will find the fastest charging at a DC fast-charging station along the route. To charge as fast as possible, we recommend you to limit the car's charging level to 80 per cent. This helps keep your charging times short because the last 20 per cent of charging takes the longest time. So charging the battery from 10 to 80 per cent at a 150kW DC fast-charger takes only around 27 minutes*. But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery up to 100 per cent using the settings in the car’s centre display.

*Please note: Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

How does the car help me to find the nearest charging station?

In countries where Google Maps includes charging stations, you can find public charging stations direct from the map in the car’s centre display or via a smartphone app. From here you can also select preferred charging stations and get guidance.

Can the battery be replaced?

If the battery or a battery module needs to be replaced, this can be done just like any other technical part of the car.

How does the battery impact safety in a collision?

The battery means there is 500 kg of extra weight that needs to be addressed in an impact – for the car’s occupants as well as for other vehicles. The battery also needs separate protection to avoid harmful leakage after a collision. By utilising a range of innovative safety solutions, Volvo Cars’ safety engineers have designed the C40 Recharge to meet all these challenges.

Connectivity and infotainment
What Google apps and services are built into the C40 Recharge?

The full electric C40 Recharge has Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play built-in.

Does the Volvo C40 Recharge have Apple CarPlay?

Yes, Apple CarPlay is standard on the pure electric C40 Recharge.*

* Apple CarPlay can only be used in combination with iPhone model 5 or later. Apple CarPlay and iPhone are trademarks of Apple Inc.

Is Digital services a subscription?

Yes, up to five years of access to the services are included. After that you can buy a continuation of the subscription if you wish to continue using all the services included.

When does the Digital services subscription start and how long does it last?

A subscription lasts up to five years. If the car is new, this period starts on the retail delivery date. The subscription is linked to the car, so in the event of the car being sold, any remaining subscription time is passed on to the next owner/user.

Is all data required to run the Digital services package included?

Yes. All data is included for up to five years. This includes both for navigation and voice assistant, as well as downloading and running any type of apps (e.g. music streaming). After this period, the service can be extended as a subscription.

Cargo and towing capacity
What is the load capacity of the pure electric C40 Recharge?

Smart battery design means all occupants have as much space as in an ordinary car. This also gives uncompromised versatility and smart storage solutions. The rear load compartment capacity is 413 litres including the compartment under the load floor. The battery encroaches on the space below the load floor, but this is to a large extent compensated by the front load compartment under the hood, which offers space for charging cables and other items you don't need so often but still want to have easily accessible if the load compartment is full.

Maintenance, warranty and service
What warranty does Volvo Cars have on the battery?

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is eight years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.

How much maintenance and service is needed for the pure electric C40 Recharge?

The electric motors are sealed for life and maintenance-free. So compared to a combustion engine-propelled car, the pure electric C40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.

Sustainability of the C40 Recharge
Is the lifecycle carbon footprint of the full electric C40 Recharge less than an equivalent internal combustion engine vehicle?

Over the full lifecycle, the C40 Recharge pure electric’s carbon footprint will be lesser than a traditional internal combustion engine vehicle (ICE). The exact differences for the vehicle types depend on a lot of parameters, for instance the electricity mix when charging, the vehicle’s lifetime and driving behaviour. We are committed to full transparency when it comes to the carbon impact of our electric vehicles and a lifecycle assessment (LCA) of the C40 Recharge can be found here.
