What do you want to know about the C40 Recharge fully electric?

Will Volvo electric cars support the North American Charging Standard (NACS)?

Volvo Car electric vehicles will soon support the North American Charging Standard, enabling access to Tesla’s Supercharger network (anticipated to begin in 2024). This will complement the wide access of fast chargers currently available via the CCS (Combined Charging System) network available today. With this move, Volvo Cars continues to improve the electric vehicle experience for our consumers by unlocking access to an additional 12,000, and growing, public fast charging stations nationwide.

Is there a difference between the EC40 and C40 Recharge?

Later this year, our fully electric C40 Recharge will be renamed the EC40. With this new upcoming nameplate, this fully electric SUV will seamlessly fit with our other fully electric vehicles, the EX30 and the EX90.

How long can I drive before I need to recharge the battery on the fully electric C40 Recharge?

Your real-world range is affected by your driving style and other circumstances, such as outdoor temperature, weather, wind, topography and roads. Other factors that impact range include 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 at a comfortable temperature when you go.

What equipment do I need to charge my fully electric C40 Recharge easily and safely at home?

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 240-volt Level 2 charger.

How much does it cost to charge the battery of the fully electric C40 Recharge?

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to gas 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 fully electric C40 Recharge to charge at the times when the costs are the lowest, often at night.

Can I use the fully electric C40 Recharge for long-distance driving?

This fully electric crossover 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 150 kW DC fast charging station, it’s possible to charge the battery from 10 to 80 percent in approximately 28 minutes (or around 50-62 mile range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip.**

** Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

Which is the fastest way to charge my fully electric C40 Recharge on long journeys?

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 percent. This helps keep your charging times short because the last 20 percent of charging takes the longest time. So charging the battery from 10 to 80 percent at a 150kW DC fast-charger takes only around 28 minutes.* But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery up to 100 percent using the settings in the car’s center display.

* Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

How does the car help me to find the nearest charging station?

In countries where Google Maps includes charging stations, you can find public charging stations direct from the map in the car’s center display or via a smartphone app. From here you can also select preferred charging stations and get guidance.

Can the battery be replaced?

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

How does the battery impact safety in a collision?

The battery means there is approximately 1100 lbs 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 utilizing a range of innovative safety solutions, Volvo Cars’ safety engineers have designed the C40 Recharge to meet all these challenges.

Is the C40 Recharge only available as a fully electric vehicle?


What Google apps and services are built into the C40 Recharge?

The fully electric C40 Recharge has Google Maps, Google Assistant and Google Play built-in.

Does the Volvo C40 Recharge have Apple CarPlay?

Yes, Apple CarPlay is standard on the fully electric C40 Recharge.*

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

Is Digital services a subscription?

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.

When does the Digital services subscription start and how long does it last?

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.

Is all data required to run the Digital services package included?

Yes. All data is included for up to four years. This includes both for navigation and voice assistant, as well as downloading and running any type of apps (e.g. music streaming). After this period, the service can be extended as a subscription.

What is the load capacity of the fully electric C40 Recharge?

Smart battery design means all occupants have as much space as in an ordinary car. This also gives uncompromised versatility and smart storage solutions. The rear load compartment capacity is approximately 15 cubic feet 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.

How much can I tow with the fully electric C40 Recharge?

We believe you should be able to drive fully electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That’s why the fully electric C40 Recharge twin can tow up to 2000 lbs.

What warranty does Volvo Cars have on the battery?

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is eight years/100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.

How much maintenance and service is needed for the fully electric C40 Recharge?

The electric motors are sealed for life and maintenance-free. So compared to a combustion engine-propelled car, the fully electric C40 Recharge needs much less maintenance which may result in lower running costs.

How can I know that the car’s battery has been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way?

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 minimize 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.

What does it mean that I can start the order of the fully electric C40 Recharge online?

If you are happy with the order overview, you can fill in your personal details, choose a retailer of your preference and submit the order request. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with all the details and the retailer/welcome center will contact you within one working day to proceed with the final step for ordering your new car.

Can I book a test drive of the car?

Yes, please contact your local retailer and they will be happy to arrange a test drive.

Can I place an online order request for other models and powertrains?

Yes, you can start your order online for the fully electric XC40 Recharge and the C40 Recharge. If you are interested in a different model or a different powertrain, your local retailer will of course be happy to help make an attractive offer for this.

Is it possible to add additional packages, options or accessories after submitting the online order request?

Yes. After submitting the request form, the retailer/welcome center you selected will contact you. Before finalizing the order, you are welcome to add available packages, options and other accessories. Please note that this can increase the price.
