XC40 Becomes Volvo's First Electric Vehicle

There is now a new alternative when it comes to your choice of beautiful and luxurious crossovers. Volvo has just unveiled its first all-electric option, the XC40 Recharge EV. This is the first in the electric wave of models Volvo plans to release in the next five years. New information is rapidly coming out about the exciting new electric crossover. So, Volvo Cars Lisle wants to get you up to speed on this great new option.

On the surface, it is the same exquisite XC40 you know and love. But beneath the surface, there is so much more to it. The hood houses a 78-kWh battery pack stationed under the passenger area. Two electric motors churn out 402 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque for a zero-to-60 pace of under five seconds. So, it provides a bit of pep in that pack. Not the type of power you would expect to find in subcompact SUV.

Real world expectations of the range of the XC40 sits around 200 miles in between charges. That is nearly five round-trip commutes from Joliet to Glendale Heights. It only takes about 40 minutes to get the battery of the XC40 Recharge to 80 percent capacity. You can do that while you are in the grocery store in Downers Grove, eating dinner out in Aurora or during a PTA meeting at your child's school in Naperville.

At its bones, the XC40 is still the crossover you love. The main difference you'll find in its appearance is in its custom grille. The unmistakable look of the Volvo grille is closed-off because it does not need to cool off an engine. You'll also find wheels that are unique to the Recharge model and EV-specific Volvo badging.

If going electric with your next SUV sounds like something right up your alley, then the XC40 Recharge is the crossover you need. Volvo Cars Lisle is eager to tell you all about this new electric option. Contact one of our associates to learn more about the XC40 Recharge and if it is the right crossover for you.
