XC40 Recharge specifications

Seating and cargo capacity

undefined 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 1,295 l

Fold down the rear seats for optimal luggage capacity – and with a flat 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.

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 XC40 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, an XC40 Recharge twin has a lower carbon impact than a petrol-powered XC40, irrespective of the charging electricity mix (global, EU or wind). However, the electricity source used when charging the XC40 Recharge has a significant impact on its total carbon emissions. Whenever possible, we encourage you to charge using renewable electricity.
