Battery charging and driving range

Volvo Cars estimates that a fully charged battery could deliver a projected range of up to 500km (twin motor) or 460-515km (single motor) in mixed driving.* These preliminary figures are still undergoing certification and will be updated when certified range data are available.

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 preliminary and 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.

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.

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.

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. And for even lower costs, you can pre-set your pure electric XC40 Recharge to charge at the times when the tariffs are the lowest, often at night.

This pure electric compact 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 200kW 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 also note that charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition. Vehicle certification pending.

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 200kW 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 also note that charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition. Vehicle certification pending.

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.

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

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 XC40 Recharge to meet all these challenges.

Connectivity and infotainment

The pure electric XC40 Recharge has Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play built-in.

Yes, Apple CarPlay is standard on the pure electric XC40 Recharge.*

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

Yes, up to four 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.

Please note: Digital services is only available for XC40 mild hybrids and the pure electric XC40 Recharge.

A subscription lasts up to four 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.

Please note: Digital services is only available for XC40 mild hybrids and the pure electric XC40 Recharge.

Cargo and towing capacity

Smart battery design means all occupants have as much space as in an ordinary XC40. This also gives uncompromised versatility and smart storage solutions. The rear load compartment capacity is 419 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.

We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That’s why the pure electric XC40 Recharge twin can tow up to 1,800kg.

Maintenance, warranty and service

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is 8 years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.

The electric motors are sealed for life and maintenance-free. So compared to a combustion engine-propelled car, the pure electric XC40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.

Sustainability of the XC40 Recharge

Over the full lifecycle, the XC40 Recharge pure electric’s carbon footprint will be lower compared to both the XC40 plug-in hybrid and the XC40 mild hybrid. 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 pure electric XC40 Recharge can be found here.

Volvo Cars is committed to full traceability, helping to ensure that our customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the raw material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly. The introduction of blockchain technology significantly boosts traceability within our cobalt supply chain. Blockchain, in conjunction with inspection on mine sites, GPS tracking, entry and exit scanning, verified logistics providers, facial recognition, ID checks, and time tracking, all contribute to a material’s traceability from a mine to the car factory.

Volvo Cars works closely with our suppliers to increase the sustainability of our products and services, including through securing responsible supply chains and making efficient use of resources. We are committed to the responsible sourcing of minerals and metals, and fully support the OECD Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-affected and High-risk Areas. In this respect, we require our battery suppliers to support our commitment to have full transparency of our cobalt supply chain and to work towards full traceability.

Sustainability performance is a key consideration when assessing and selecting our suppliers. We monitor the performance of existing suppliers and follow up with third party audits. We also put requirements on our battery suppliers to minimise carbon emissions during the production processes, including through the use of renewable energy. All our suppliers have to agree to the Volvo Cars' Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which includes the observation of human rights, including labour rights.
