C40 Recharge specifications

A white Volvo C40 Recharge crossover standing still on grey floor in a studio.

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 1,205 l

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

Range and charging

Pure electric range

The range above shows the official WLTP certified data for the selected motor for combined driving. Actual range in real world conditions can vary depending on driving style, temperature, use of the vehicle’s climate system and other factors such as elevation, wind, rain and road surface.

Figures are preliminary, final vehicle certification pending.


Fast charging

Typical time to charge from 10 to 80 per cent with 150kW DC fast charging (CCS2).


Home charging

Typical time to charge from 0 to 100 per cent with 11kW AC fast charging (Type 2) 3-phase 16A.*

Charging ports

The C40 Recharge has a combined charging socket with both AC and DC inlet ports.

Charging equipment included

11 kW onboard charger (Type 2).

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 C40 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, a C40 Recharge twin has a lower carbon impact than a petrol-powered Volvo XC40, irrespective of the charging electricity mix (global, EU or wind). However, the electricity source used when charging the C40 Recharge has a significant impact on its total carbon emissions. Whenever possible, we encourage you to charge using renewable electricity.
