Volvo Australia confirms local pricing and specification for the new XC40 Recharge Pure Electric SUV ahead of a third-quarter Australian launch.
Volvo’s first all-electric vehicle, the new XC40 Recharge Pure Electric SUV, is heading to Australia later this year at $76,990 plus on-road costs.
The model will be available in one specification, including twin 150 kW electric motors on the front and rear axles for all-wheel drive and a total combined output of 300kW and 660Nm. The claimed 0-100kph time is 4.9 seconds.
Driving range is 418km thanks to a 78kWh lithium-ion battery pack under the floor. Recharging times via DC fast charging will take the battery from zero to 80 per cent charge in around 40 minutes.
Inside is an emphasis on Scandinavian minimalist design using aluminium accents and contrast stitching in the leather accented seats. Unlike other Volvo XC40 models, the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has no start-stop button. Once it is unlocked, you simply sit in the seat and drive.
