Volvo Cars has started production of its latest, all-electric model, the C40 Recharge, at its production facility in Ghent, Belgium.
The C40 Recharge is the second all-electric car from Volvo Cars and the last in a series of new all-electric cars to be launched in the coming years. By 2030, Volvo Cars intends to establish sales of exclusively fully electric cars, which is one of the most ambitious electrification strategies in the automotive industry. It also intends to become a climate-neutral company by 2040.
The Ghent plant, one of the company’s largest factories, represents a major step in Volvo Cars’ progress towards full electrification. It also produces the XC40 Recharge, an all-electric version of the award-winning compact SUV, or Volvo Cars’ first all-electric model.
Volvo Cars is significantly increasing the capacity of electric cars in operation in Ghent, to 135,000 cars a year, and it is already expected that more than half of the factory’s production in 2022 will be represented by fully electric cars.
The Volvo C40 Recharge is the latest manifestation of Volvo Cars’ ambitions for a zero-emission future. The company will present several additional electric models in the coming years and advocates that by 2025, 50% of global sales would be represented by fully electric cars, and then by 2030.
As part of the company’s new business strategy, the C40 Recharge can be purchased online through volvocars.com in selected markets around the world. Customers can place an online order comfortably from home or with the assistance of their sales advisor.
The C40 Recharge features all the benefits of an SUV, but with a lower and sleeker design, including headlights with the latest pixel technology.
The interior of the C40 Recharge provides customers with the high seating position preferred by most Volvo drivers, with all the color and decor options unique to this model. It is also the first Volvo model to be completely without leather elements.
Like the XC40 Recharge, the C40 Recharge is equipped with one of the best infotainment systems on the market, co-developed with Google and based on the Android operating system. Provides users with installed Google applications and services, such as Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.
Unlimited data allows for superior connectivity, and the C40 Recharge is designed to download software updates wirelessly. This means that over time, it will continue to improve even after it leaves the factory.
The drive consists of two electric motors, one on the front and one on the rear axle, powered by a 78 kWh battery. It can be quickly charged from 10 to 80% in approximately 40 minutes. The estimated range is about 440 km.
