2020 Volvo XC40 Recharge all-electric model revealed

Volvo introduced the XC40 Recharge, the company’s first-ever fully electric car and the first model to appear in its new Recharge car line concept. 

The XC40 Recharge is the first of a range of fully electric Volvos. The new model also introduces its new infotainment system powered by Google’s Android operating system.

Over the next five years, Volvo Cars will launch a fully electric car every year, as it seeks to make all-electric cars 50-per cent of global sales by 2025, with the rest hybrids.

The XC40 Recharge fully electric all-wheel drive powertrain offers a range of over 400 km (WLTP drive cycle) on a single charge and output of 408hp. The battery charges to 80-percent of its capacity in 40 mins on a fast-charger system.

The Android-powered infotainment system is fully integrated with Volvo On Call, the company’s digital connected services platform. Via Volvo On Call plug-in hybrid drivers can track how much time they spend driving on electric power.

Volvo Cars aims for plug-in hybrid cars to make up 20-percent of total sales in 2020. They are currently the only carmaker to offer a plug-in variant on every model in its line-up.

Whether the XC40 Recharge will arrive in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC markets is still not known, but it definitely won’t be anytime soon.
