The charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at home. The standard home charging cable with a household connector (3 pin plug) is primarily an auxiliary cable. Charging an empty battery to 100 per cent with this cable takes approximately 36–60 hours. For regular and considerably shorter charging times at home, we recommend a 3-phase 11 kW wallbox. This installation can give you approximately 7.5 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent). When charging at stations outside your home, you may charge the car using fast-charging DC stations. At a 150 kW DC charging station you can charge the battery from zero to around 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes. Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal. Please note: Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully-charged battery gives you a projected range of 250 miles* at mixed driving before you need to recharge. But your real-world range is also affected by your driving style and other circumstances such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Other factors that impact range are how much electricity you use for car functions such as heating and cooling of the car. One way to improve range, is to pre-condition your car during charging so it's already comfortable climatized when you go. You can also add a heat pump that saves valuable energy.

But on a daily basis, you will likely charge the battery whenever your car is parked (where charging is possible) – be it at home, at work or at the shops. So range should not be an issue for everyday driving provided that you have good access to charging.

*Range according to the realistic WLTP and EPA driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.

This pure electric compact SUV is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery's high capacity with a projected range of 250 miles* ensures you can 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 zero to 80 per cent in approximately 40 minutes – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.

*Range according to the realistic WLTP and EPA driving cycles under controlled conditions for a new vehicle. Real-world range may vary. Figures are based on preliminary target. Final vehicle certification pending.

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be considerably 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 XC40 Recharge Pure Electric to charge at the times when the tariffs are the lowest, often at night.

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. And depending on your home electrical service capacity, there's the option of either a 1-phase 16A “Blue Plug” cable or a 3-phase 16A “Red Plug” cable capable of up to 3.5 kW (1-phase) or 11 kW (3-phase) charging.

Please note: the availability of charging equipment may vary depending on market.

For DC fast-charging, our recommendation is to charge max 80 per cent. This helps keep your charging times short because it's the last 20 per cent of the charging that take the longest time to achieve. But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery with up to 100 per cent using the settings in the car's centre display.
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 by 2020, 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 Car's Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which includes the observation of human rights, including labour rights.
Over the average 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.
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 met all these challenges.
The electric motors are sealed for life and are maintenance-free. So compared to a combustion engine propelled car, the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.
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 413 litres above the load floor. The battery encroaches the space below the load floor, but this is to a large extent compensated by the front load compartment under the hood with space for charging cables and other stuff.
We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That's why the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric allows towing up to 1,500 kg/3307 lb.
