The new Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric is available to order in Germany. The first model available is a high-quality, unique model called "First Edition", which Volvo advertises with 57,800 euros (this is the price without government incentives).

Alternatively, Volvo offers the C40 Recharge Pure Electric with a flexible lease at 769 euros per month. If the customer signs for a full three years lease, the price is 699 euros per month. A deposit is not required.

The unique feature: The "Care Service Package" is included for three years. This package contains a recharge insurance plan (consisting of motor vehicle liability and fully comprehensive insurance), as well as the costs for service, maintenance and wear and tear. As a result, the variable costs per month are correspondingly lower - which, however, makes it difficult to compare prices with other models when making a purchase decision.

In other European countries, Volvo had already opened the orders about four weeks ago. In the Netherlands, the Volvo C40 Recharge is available from 57,000 euros or 779 euros per month with a lease. In Norway, the C40 Recharge is available from 54,000 euros as a purchase price or 663 euros as a lease.

The new Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric is offered exclusively with a 12.3-inch digital cockpit and the 9-inches central display, which controls the Android-based infotainment system, among other things. In addition, the First Edition includes a Harman Kardon sound system, two-zone automatic air conditioning, a wireless smartphone charging cradle, a heated steering wheel and heated and electrically adjustable front seats.

The Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric has two electric motors with 150 kW each ensure a system output of 300 kW and comes with AWD (four-wheel-drive) as standard. The battery has a gross capacity of 78 kWh, which is enough for 420 kilometres of autonomy according to WLTP. The electric SUV goes from 0-100 in 4.9 seconds. The top speed of the C40 is limited to 180 km / h.

The new Volvo C40 Recharge electric SUV has AC charging up to 11 kW and DC charging up to 150 kW. So when you're on the road, you can fast-charge your Volvo electric SUV from 10 to 80 % in about 33 minutes.

The C40 Recharge has a built-in SIM card that allows the SUV to be permanently connected to the internet. In addition, Volvo offers unlimited data usage for the use of the car's features, and the C40 Recharge will be able to receive updates over the air (OTA).

According to Volvo Cars, the C40 Recharge gives customers all the benefits of an electric SUV but comes with a more economical and slenderer crossover design.

With the Volvo C40 Recharge, you don't have to choose between smooth or efficient driving. Instead, take a seat, choose the right gear and off you go. There is no start button, and you drive with just one pedal. Experience the refined power of two electric motors and four-wheel drive, with zero emissions.
