We believe a car should be as intuitive to use as your smartphone. That’s why the pure electric XC40 Recharge pioneers embedded Google services. You get the familiar, well-proven Google Maps navigation functions and the supremely helpful Google Assistant voice-control. Plus useful in-car apps from Google Play store – all seamlessly integrated in your car. This technology also learns how you behave and can make suggestions to smooth out the day. From now on, your car is fully connected to your digital life – even without your phone.
Wherever you look in the cabin, there are smart storage solutions. Like a waste bin, numerous card holders, wireless phone charging, a foldable bag hook and a lot more. At the rear, there’s plenty of room for luggage and gear. And when you open the hood, you find a front compartment instead of a bulky combustion engine. It’s the perfect space to keep your charging cables easily accessible and well protected.
The pure electric XC40 Recharge can support you when driving. Pilot Assist, for example, keeps a set speed and distance to vehicles in front while controlling the steering to keep you centered in your lane. This is driving made safer, more enjoyable and more relaxed. Please note: Keep your hands on the steering wheel and remain alert while using the Pilot Assist feature.
Zero carbon emissions when driving
Driving on pure electricity means driving without emitting any tailpipe emissions at all. Nothing but the pure joy of freedom – without the environment having to pay the price.
The pure electric XC40 Recharge is designed to reduce environmental impact, including the use of sustainable material. For example, the interior carpeting is entirely made of recycled plastic. Our vision is that 25% of all plastics in our cars will be made from recycled materials by 2025. At the end of the car’s lifecycle, the battery and 95% of the complete car can be recycled – ensuring that limited resources can be reused again.
This feature makes it easy to share your car with others for a certain period of time. Wherever you are, you can give friends, family members and colleagues instant access to your pure electric XC40 Recharge via the Volvo On Call app. They open the car with their mobile phone and then drive away. Smart, easy and secure – and a big leap towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
Dual electric motor powertrain
Dual high-performance 402 hp front and rear electric motors – the pure electric XC40 Recharge gives you a supremely inspiring and refined drive. With fast take-offs, all-wheel drive stability and smooth, linear acceleration at all speeds. In near-silence and with zero carbon emissions when driving. Combined with one pedal drive, this makes for an intuitive and powerful drive with a feeling of full control – a car that seamlessly follows your intentions.
BLIS – blind spot warning with steer assist
We designed this technology to help you make the right decisions. If there’s a vehicle in your blind spot and you try to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist is designed to alert and gently steer you back into your lane.
Theft-prevention key fob
Park your pure electric XC40 Recharge with peace in mind. Advanced theft-protection technology helps ensure your car will be there the next time you need it. It even helps prevent thieves from capturing the radio signal from your remote key when you’re at home. When the key is not in motion, it will simply be impossible to copy any signal from it.

What do you want to know about the pure electric XC40 Recharge?
How long can I drive before I need to recharge the battery?
The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kWh. A fully-charged battery gives you a projected range above 200 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. You can also add a heat pump that saves valuable energy.
But on a daily basis, you will probably charge the battery whenever the car is parked where charging is possible – be it at home, at work or in the city. So range should not be an issue for everyday driving provided that you have good access to charging.
