Exterior Design

The exterior of the XC40 Recharge is as fun and sporty as the original XC40. With its sculpted body and vivid edges, it has a futuristic, fun appearance that is sure to turn heads in Sunnyvale. Available two-tone colors make the XC40 Recharge stand out even further. The XC40 Recharge is available in eight striking colors: Black Stone, Onyx Black Metallic, Thunder Grey Metallic, Bursting Blue Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Fusion Red Metallic, Crystal White Metallic, and Sage Green Metallic.


The XC40 Recharge features two motors, with the front and rear wheels each being powered by its own motor. Having two motors gives the XC40 Recharge plenty of power. Each motor generates 201 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque. That means that the XC40 Recharge gets 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque, a tremendous amount of power for a subcompact crossover. With this powerful dual-engine, the XC40 has a zero-to-60 miles-per-hour time of 4.7 seconds. Standard all-wheel-drive ensures great traction on just about any drivable surface, letting you easily take full advantage of the XC40 Recharge's exceptional powertrain.

All this power also comes with the convenience that an electric motor provides. The XC40 Recharge has an EPA-based estimated driving range of 208 miles on a fully-charged battery, and an EPA-estimated miles-per-gallon equivalent (MPGe) of 85 MPGe city, 72 MPGe highway, and 79 MPGe combined. Best of all, you don't have to wait too long for your vehicle to get recharged. With a fast charger, you can charge a depleted battery to 80 percent in just 40 minutes.


The XC40 Recharge has a generous suite of features. Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play Store are built in, letting you stay fully connected even when you drive. A built-in route planner alerts you to recharge your vehicle when there is still plenty of charge to spare, and automatically recommends when and where you can charge.

An Available Harman Kardon premium sound system uses strategically placed speakers, surround sound, and fine-tuning, creating an immersive, incredible audio experience. Experience music in your car like you've never heard it before!


Safety has long been vital to Volvo and the XC40 Recharge continues this tradition. The XC40 Recharge will help you keep your position on the road by subtly vibrating the steering wheel if you start to drift and steer you back into your lane if necessary. The blind spot information system (BLIS™) uses steer assist to make driving in heavy traffic less stressful. BLIS tracks if other vehicles are in your blind spot, alerts you if you change lanes with a vehicle in your blind spot, and steers you back into your lane if you don't respond. Cross traffic alert makes it easier to get out of a packed parking lot, warning you when there is an approaching vehicle and applying the brakes to prevent a collision.

The XC40 Recharge also takes advantage of the structure allowed by an electric engine to make the vehicle's frame as safe as possible. Its advanced body structure is designed to protect all of the vehicle's occupants in the event of a collision.
