The 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge Won’t Come Cheap
The C40 Recharge rides on the same platform as boxier XC40 Recharge, but only offers a two-motor, all-wheel drive electric powertrain. The two motors, one for each axle, make 402 hp and 486 lb-ft combined, good for a 0-60 mph sprint time of 4.7 seconds. Its battery is just slightly larger than the XC40’s at 78 kWh. Volvo says it can charge 80% in 40 minutes on a fast charger.
Volvo notes that with the XC40 Recharge it reduced its trims to just Plus and Ultimate. The new C40 will only be offered in the Ultimate level, with almost everything the company makes. That includes the Android operating system with Google, a fixed panoramic moonroof, 84-pixel LED lights, Pilot Assist (assisted driving), Harman Kardon premium sound, surround view camera and unique 20-inch wheels.
