Volvo electric cars

Everything you love about driving. Zero tailpipe emissions.

Designed fully electric. Ready for the future of driving

Elevated electric driving

We've looked over the horizon to develop a range of cars that elevate electrification. Instead of simply adapting what's come before, we design and engineer electric cars that deliver a new way to enjoy life on the road.

Sophisticated styling and dynamic performance

Volvo electric car exteriors take our sophisticated Scandinavian design style in a striking direction. Contemporary and aerodynamic exterior styling is paired with a dynamic and powerful electric driving experience. 

Renewable and recycled materials

The upholsteries and décor featured in our electric car interiors apply renewable and recycled materials in elegant new ways. Transformed into premium materials, they enrich the minimalistic interior architecture of our luxury cabins.

Innovative batteries. On the cutting edge of energy.

Advanced battery safety

Our commitment to safety extends to electric car batteries. That’s why we develop and produce the battery packs and systems used in our range of fully electric cars. Using Battery Management Systems, we also monitor and regulate how batteries function during normal operation.

Battery production and recycling

Batteries are the most carbon-intensive component in our electric cars. By managing the entire production value chain and recycling, we help ensure battery production is as circular as possible and avoid batteries going to a landfill at the end of their lives.

Eight-year battery warranty

New Volvo electric cars have an extended battery warranty valid for 8-years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. During the warranty period, we guarantee 70% state-of-health, an indicator of the battery’s energy storage capacity. That means a high level of performance, guaranteed.

Advanced safety features

Drive with peace of mind knowing your electric car is equipped with advanced innovations designed to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road.

Take the guesswork out of charging

With ChargePoint and their roaming partners EVgo, Shell Recharge, Flo, and EVConnect, among others, electric Volvo drivers can now access over 60,000 charging ports across the United States. Now you can find, start, track and pay for charging all within the Volvo Cars app.

What do you want to know about Volvo fully electric cars?

How do electric cars work?

Electric cars work by using a battery to store electrical energy that powers an electric motor. This motor converts the energy to propel the car's wheels. Electric cars do not rely on burning fuel to generate power. Instead, they capture and store energy through charging and regenerative braking.

How long does it take to charge at home?

Charging times depend on a few factors, including the charging equipment you use, the battery’s initial charge level, and the level you’re after.

We recommend keeping your battery charged above 20 % and only charging up to 90 %. This can help reduce charging times (0 to 10 % and 90 to 100 % take the longest) and help protect the battery health.

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.

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

Use the center display or the Volvo Cars app to search Google Maps for nearby charging stations. Filter by availability, charger speed, charging network, and price. When you’ve selected a destination, you’ll get turn-by-turn navigation.

In some car models, you’ll see the expected charge level on arrival, and your car’s battery will automatically be pre-conditioned. This ensures the battery is at the optimal temperature for efficient charging.

Is there a warranty for Volvo fully electric car batteries?

When you buy a new fully electric Volvo car, your battery is covered by a warranty for 8-years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, where the car and battery are maintained and operated according to the recommendations of Volvo Cars.

Can the battery be replaced?

The battery and battery modules can be replaced like any other technical part of the car.

How does the battery impact safety in a collision?

The battery adds around 1100 pounds of weight to our fully electric cars. This changes how a collision would impact the passengers in the car and the other vehicles involved. Batteries must also be protected to avoid harmful leakages after a collision. Utilizing a range of innovative safety solutions, engineers at Volvo Cars have designed fully electric cars that meet these challenges.

Is the lifecycle carbon footprint of a full electric Volvo car less than an equivalent internal combustion engine vehicle?

Over the lifetime of a vehicle, the carbon footprint of a battery electric vehicle (BEV) is less than a traditional internal combustion engine vehicle (ICE). However, the distance needed to be driven for a BEV to become less carbon intensive than an ICE vehicle is largely dependent on how the electricity that powers the vehicle is generated.If you charge your BEV with renewable electricity, you will need to drive less for that point to be reached, compared with if you use electricity generated from fossil fuels. We encourage you to power your electric vehicle with electricity from renewable sources.

We are committed to full transparency regarding the full carbon impact of our electric vehicles. A lifecycle analysis (LCA) is available for some of our fully electric cars. View the product description page for the fully electric Volvo car you’re interested in to learn more.
