Dual-Motor Capability

Rather than using a single electric motor, the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric uses a pair of 201-horsepower electric motors to deliver both rapid acceleration, smooth cruising, and greater range.

Regenerative Braking

Regenerative braking is one place where electric vehicles gain a huge advantage over combustion engines. When slowing or braking, forward momentum is transferred back into the battery to extend range while you're on the move.

A Powerful Battery

The 78kWh battery inside the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric offers over 200 miles of range and can be charged to 80 percent in under 40 minutes. An at-home charger is also available for added convenience, and the battery can operate climate controls without the electric motors being switched on, so it works to keep you comfortable as well.
