The XC40 Recharge P8 comes with a state-of-the-art, fully electric all-wheel drive powertrain that offers a range of over 400 km on a single charge under the WLTP drive cycle and output of 408hp. The battery charges to 80 % of its capacity in 40 mins on a fast-charger system.
Like the XC40, the XC40 Recharge P8 is based on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), an advanced vehicle platform co-developed within the Geely Group. CMA provides Volvo with the necessary economies of scale for this segment.
The XC40 Recharge P8 is the first Volvo model equipped with a brand new infotainment system powered by the Android operating system. The new infotainment system offers customers unprecedented personalisation, improved levels of intuitiveness and new embedded Google technology and services, such as the Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play Store.
It is also the first Volvo that receives larger software and operating system updates over the air, placing Volvo Cars at the forefront of automotive connected services. The XC40 Recharge P8 will keep evolving and improving over time, rather than being at its peak when it leaves the factory.
The battery is protected by a safety cage embedded in the middle of the car’s body structure. Its placement in the floor of the car also lowers the centre of gravity of the car, for better protection against roll-overs.
Inside, an innovative approach to all-round functionality provides drivers with plenty of storage space, for example in the doors, under the seats and in the trunk. Not having an internal combustion engine means the car provides drivers with even more storage space than the regular XC40, via a so-called ‘frunk’ under the front hood.
