Volvo Recharge

Our range of pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars.

Recharge powertrains

Pure electric

Sometimes quiet is the most powerful way to go, with zero tailpipe emissions and less noise at all speeds. Powered by a high-voltage battery and dual electric motors, our XC40 Recharge pure electric is pure progress for the road ahead.

Plug-in hybrid

Less petrol, more purpose. In our Recharge plug-in hybrids, an electric motor and combustion engine team together for a choice of pure electric mode, power mode and hybrid mode, giving you total driving control and lower tailpipe emissions.

Our plug-in hybrids

Regenerative braking

Energy created when braking is harnessed and stored in the car’s battery for future use, allowing you to drive more sustainably and economically.

Power on command

All our plug-in hybrid models deliver a powerful, responsive drive with smooth, quiet acceleration. You can also choose from multiple driving modes to fine tune your ride.

What do you want to know about Volvo Recharge?

We have been innovating in the field of electric powertrains since the 1970s. For us this is a natural progression in terms of technology and a clear statement of our commitment towards sustainable mobility and the reduction of emissions. Our ambition is to reduce our carbon footprint by 40% per car by 2025 compared to 2018. And to be climate neutral by 2040.

Electrified powertrains offer a range of benefits – from reducing tailpipe emissions during driving and likely lower operating costs, to delivering a more refined drive and responsive acceleration feel on take-off.

As from 2019, all our models are available with Recharge plug-in hybrid powertrain technology.

All battery electric cars undergo the same tests as petrol or diesel cars. In Europe, Euro NCAP has long been the benchmark for car safety. Test have also become even tougher with new demands on, among other things, auto brakes. At Volvo, all cars in the entire model range have received the highest marks in their respective tests. And with the advanced safety technology of the XC40 Recharge pure electric, we introduce one of the world’s safest electric cars.
