A fully charged battery gives you a projected range of up to 261 miles* in 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 road condition. Other factors that impact range include how much electricity you use for car functions such as heating and cooling of the car, utilization of the one pedal drive feature.

The C40 Recharge is perfectly suited for comfortable long-distance driving. And the battery’s projected range in excess of 200 miles**helps you 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 per cent in approximately 37 minutes (or around 80-100 km range in 10 minutes) – just enough time to rest or have a meal during the trip. * The figures are based on WLTP data obtained under specific testing conditions.

You will find the fastest charging at a DC fast-charging station along the route. To charge as fast as possible, we recommend limiting the car's charging level to 80 per cent. This helps keep your charging times short because the last 20 per cent of charging takes the longest time. So, charging the battery from 10 to 80 per cent with a 150kW DC fast charger takes only around 37 minutes. But if needed to reach your destination or the next charging station, you can choose to charge the battery up to 100 per cent using the settings in the car’s centre display

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 charging time depends on the charging equipment you use and the electric installation at your home. For regular charging at home,. We recommend a Level 2 home charger with 50 amps of power from a dedicated single phase 240-volt circuit with a two-pole circuit breaker rated at minimum of 70 amps (or 60 amp circuit with max load of 48 amps) This installation can give you approximately 8 hours charging time (from empty to 100 per cent), or around 25 miles of range per hour. When charging at stations outside your home, the most probable situations are that you will top the battery during shorter periods of time, for example from 40 per cent to 80 per cent (11 kW AC gives around 25 miles of range per hour). And on longer trips, you may charge the car using fast-charging DC stations. At a 150 kW DC charging station, you can charge the battery from 10 to around 80 per cent in approximately 37 minutes (or around 50-60 miles of range in 10 minutes). Just enough time to take a rest and have a meal. The standard home charging cable with two household connectors is a dual mode level 2 charging cable approximately 14 feet in length (4.5 meters) capable of 240-volt and 40-amps of charging. The charging of the car is monitored by two-way communication between the car and the control box. When the cable is connected to the car, self-test diagnostics are performed to ensure that the cable is properly connected and that the car is ready to receive power before charging starts. The control box is integrated in the charging cable and plugged into an ordinary power socket. The cable is supplied with an adapter to enable Level 1 and Level 2 charging. Level 1 charging adaptor fits the common 120-volt 3 prong wall outlet (NEMA 5-15R) with 12 amps of current. These outlets do not carry sufficient current to deliver appropriate levels of rate of charge and are intended to “top off” the charge when travelling visiting friends or relatives. Charging an empty battery to 100 per cent with this cable takes in excess of 50-72 hours, at a charge rate of about 1.4 kW or 5 miles of range per hour. Please note: Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as electrical capacity of location, outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

The standard home charging cable with two household connectors is a dual mode level 2 charging cable approximately 14 feet in length (4.5 meters) capable of 240-volt and 40-amps of charging. When connected to a properly installed 50 amp NEMA 14-50 plug wired to an electrical panel that supports a 240-volt dedicated circuit with non-GFCI two-pole circuit breakers.

For considerably faster and more convenient charging at home, we recommend installing a 240-volt single -phase 11 kW home charger

The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to petrol. The lowered fuel cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car. And for even lower costs, you will be able to set your full electric C40 Recharge to charge during off-peak times when the electricity costs are the lowest, often at night.

The Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is 8 years or 100,000 miles (160,000km), whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with our recommendations.

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

The battery means there is 1100 lbs (500kg) 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, our safety engineers have designed the C40 Recharge to meet all these challenges.

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

This new headlight technology has 84 Pixel LEDs in each headlight and can help you avoid dazzling other drivers while lighting up the road ahead efficiently. When unlocking the car, these headlights will also perform a welcoming light sequence together with the LED rear lights.

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 14.5 cubic ft (413 litres) 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.

We believe you should be able to drive pure electric without compromising on everyday versatility. That’s why the C40 Recharge can tow up to 1,800 kg.

Over the lifetime of a vehicle, the carbon footprint of a fully 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 power the vehicle is generated. If you charge your BEV with renewable electricity, you will need to drive only 49,000km for that point to be reached, compared with 110,000km if you use electricity generated from the global average electricity mix. Where possible, we encourage you to power your electric vehicle with electricity from renewable sources.

We are committed to full transparency when it comes to the carbon impact of our electric vehicles and a lifecycle analysis (LCA) of the C40 Recharge can be found here.

We are committed to full traceability and transparency of our battery supply chain, helping to ensure that our customers can drive electrified Volvos knowing the material for the batteries has been sourced responsibly. We were the first automotive manufacturer to introduce blockchain technology across our entire 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 significantly boost the traceability of cobalt from the mine to the car factory. 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. We require our battery suppliers to fully support this commitment. 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 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.
