Unveiled a few months ago, the new Volvo C40 Recharge details today its prices as well as range, to say the least reduced.
Remember, it was last March. After a few teasers and many rumors, Volvo lifted the veil on its all new C40 Recharge, which is none other than a coupe version of the XC40, already on the market for a long time and still very popular. Indeed, the front face is simply identical to the electric version of the SUV, with its very angular full grille and its optics once again showing the famous Hammer of Thor. It will therefore rather take a look at the rear to detect the difference, since this newcomer to the range adopts a silhouette of coupé more dynamic, with its roof and its window more inclined. On board, no major changes either, since the compact SUV then takes the presentation already well known within the Volvo range, with its touch screen in vertical position, integrating a signed operating system Android. Users can then use many services directly in their car, be it Google Maps or Google Assistant. For its part, the trunk volume has not yet been specified.
Unsurprisingly, this new Volvo C40 Recharge shares its undersides and more particularly its CMA platform (Common Modular Architecture) with its big brother, the XC40. Logic therefore that this newcomer also inherits a similar technical sheet, then embedding no less than two electric motors, one on each axle. The result is a combined power of 408 horsepower, which then allows the SUV to achieve 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.9 seconds. For its part, its 78 kWh battery allows it to travel approximately 420 kilometers, while recharging up to 80% is carried out in about forty minutes on a fast terminal. Manufactured in Ghent this autumn, the new Volvo C40 Recharge will arrive in dealerships immediately, for a price starting from € 62,250. Only one finish will then be available, called First Edition, including a nice standard endowment, which you can now discover below.
