Volvo Cars have announced the production launch of the new C40 Recharge in Ghent, Belgium, making it Volvo's latest all-electric model.
The announcement entails the production of the C40 Recharge- Volvo Cars' second all-electric car. The car manufacturer stated that it is the latest model in a series of all-new 100% electric cars to be launched in the coming years. The statement follows Volvo's commitment to being a fully electric car company by 2030. Following this commitment, Volvo Cars have also stated to aim to be a climate-neutral company by 2040.
The C40 Recharge will consist of twin electric motors, one on the front end of the electric car (EV) and one on the rear end. The twin motors will be powered by a 78kWh that will provide a fast charge of 10% to 80% in a total time of about 40 minutes - and the range is anticipated to offer around 273 miles (440 km).
Looking at the C40's interior, the seat material is said to feature 100% leather free components, a first for Volvo's cruelty-free approach. Customers will have the preferred high seating arrangement in its interior, with new colour options produced uniquely to the model.
Like the XC40 Recharge, Volvo's first all-electric model, the C40 Recharge will come with the same infotainment system, developed with Google and Android's operating system. The system will provide the EV user with built-in Google apps such as Google Maps and Google Play. In addition, the C40 Recharge will include up to date data, resulting in more robust connectivity and is designed to receive automatic software updates. This means the model will continue to receive updates and improvements even after the vehicle leaves the factory.
The all-new C40 Recharge is now available to order online via their website. Upon all orders, customers will benefit from a convenient care package offer that includes warranty, servicing, roadside assistance, home charging options and supposedly, even insurance options. The UK Care by Volvo will be under a subscription and start from £729 a month.
UK deliveries are expected to commence from summer 2022 when interested buyers can test drive the EV at any local Volvo retailer. More information is available at https://www.volvocars.com/uk/cars/c40-electric/.
