It will join the company’s other fully electric offering, the XC40 Recharge, which is based on the gas-powered XC40.
Volvo did an admirable job on the C40 Recharge’s styling, with some interesting taillights that stretch up into the rear D-pillars.
They generate 402 combined horsepower and 487 pounds-feet of torque — but it honestly doesn’t feel like it.
Even with the driver’s seat set as low as it can go, you cannot see the horizon line in the rearview mirror.
It has a standard 78-kilowatt-hour battery and DC fast-charging capability that Volvo says allows it to go from a 10% charge to 80% in about 28 minutes.
It didn’t work for the BMW X4 and X6, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLE Coupes, or the Infiniti QX55, and it doesn’t work for the C40 Recharge.
