Volvo Cars is introducing a range of updates to its entire car line-up including an exterior refresh of the fully electric XC40 Recharge and a single-electric-motor variant of the pure electric C40 Recharge.
The new single-motor C40, with power to the front wheels, expands the company’s range of fully electric variants to four, further paving the way towards its ambition of selling only fully electric cars by 2030.
The single-motor C40 Recharge comes with a 69kWh battery and an anticipated range of up to 269 miles (434km) on a single charge. The battery can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent capacity in approximately 32 minutes on a fast-charging system.
In the UK, the new trim level naming structure comprises Start (XC40 T2 only), Core, Plus and Ultimate. Depending on the model, certain trim levels are also offered in a dark theme, with gloss black exterior detailing, or a bright theme, complete with chrome exterior trim.
