Volvo introduced its first-ever electric model for India a year ago, it was the XC40 Recharge which was expected to go on sale in October 2021. However, the launch of the electric SUV was delayed, as Volvo decided to import the car as a completely knocked down unit. Generally, the cars can also be imported as a CBU (completely built-up) unit.

Now, Volvo has finally declared that the XC40 Recharge is set to hit the Indian markets and it will be launched on 26 July 2022. Moreover, Volvo India also informed that it will host the launch event through its version of the metaverse, VolvoVerse.


Volvo XC40 Recharge Electric SUV: Specs 

Volvo XC40 Recharge is an electric motor drivetrain that develops a combined output, which means from both the axles – 405 bhp and 660 Nm of peak torque. It also transfers the power to all wheels via a single-speed transmission and offers a good acceleration of up to 100 mph from a standstill in 4.9 seconds. The EV comes with a 79 kWh battery that helps translate to a range of around 400 km.

Last year, Volvo launched the Volvo XC60, Volvo S90, and Volvo XC90 petrol with a 48V mild-hybrid system with an all-petrol portfolio and phased out all diesel models.

The Volvo XC40, Volvo XC60, Volvo S60, and Volvo S90 are among the bestselling models of Volvo Car India. The company began with the local assembly in India in 2017. At present, the company is busy assembling at the Bangalore plant the flagship XC90, XC60, XC40, and the S90 with the XC40 Recharge being the latest to join. Since the cars are sourced locally, the electric SUV is to be priced competitively against its rivals, the Kia EV6, and Hyundai IONIQ 5, yet to be launched.
