Volvo Cars, a luxury automobile maker which is headquartered in Torslanda in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company manufactures and markets sport utility vehicles, station wagons, hatchbacks, sedans, and compact executive sedans.
Volvo Cars is going to introduce Volvo XC40 Recharge, an Electric SUV that is based on Volvo’s Common Modular Architecture. It has a 78kWh battery pack mounted under the cabin floor with electric motors on each axle.
When connected to a 150kW DC rapid charger, the “XC40 Recharge” can charge up to 80% in around 40 minutes. A full charge of the vehicle takes around 8 hours.
It has a maximum output of 402bhp and 660Nm of torque which the Volvo says is enough for a 0-62 mph time of 4.9 seconds. It offers a range of 259 miles due to the recent software update.
The electric powertrain of the Volvo XC40 Recharge is smaller than that required for a combustion engine. This creates an additional storage room of 31-liters under the bonnet which is compatible with carrying the charging cable.
The car has dual-zone climate control, a wireless smartphone charging pad, a 12.3-inch digital dash, and a 9-inch infotainment system which is powered by the new Google-developed software rather than Volvo’s in-house Sensus System.
Volvo XC40 Recharge expected launch date and price in India
Volvo XC40 Recharge is predicted to be launched in India on Jan 2022 in a price starting from ₹50.00 to 55.00 Lakh.
