Volvo to offer free electricity to plug-in hybrid buyers

This would mark the first step towards the automaker's goal of becoming a climate neutral company by the year 2040. Pricing hasn't been announced, but Volvo said it will reimburse owners for the equivalent of one free year of electricity, tracked and paid for through its connected app. Only a fully electric all-wheel drive with 300 kW peak power and a WLTP range of over 400 kilometres are mentioned. The 0-100 km/h time is said to be 4.9 seconds. So far there's no concrete information on pricing, but the vehicle should come in around $50,000 after electric tax incentives- considerably less than Tesla's all-electric SUV, the Model X, which after incentives and gas savings is priced at $73,315.

To answer the biggest question on every EV lover's mind, the XC40 Recharge has a claimed range of "more than 400km" between charges, and it can be charged to 80 percent in 40 minutes when plugged in to a fast-charger. Volvo Cars is the only carmaker to offer a plug-in variant on every model in its line-up.

The XC40 Recharge is easily identified from the front thanks to a covered front grille as less airflow is required for cooling purposes.

Volvo has unveiled the all-electric XC40 Recharge.

Hong Kong protest leader left bloodied in street attack
Representative Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican and a sponsor of the main Hong Kong bill, dismissed the threats from Beijing. Both Trump and President Xi Jinping have so far prevented the worldwide uproar over Hong Kong from scuttling their trade talks.

Police found handwritten notes by late singer Sulli
Sulli was active on social media and recently hosted a TV series where celebrities discussed their experiences with online abuse. K-pop singer Goo Hara, a close friend of the late star, was also sent to hospital a year ago after a suspected suicide attempt.

As we covered in early October, Volvo has also applied its safety-first ethos to the XC40 Recharge, ensuring passenger safety and battery integrity in the event of a collision via a new safety structure for the all-electric Volvo XC40. On the inside, it comes with an Android-powered touchscreen head-unit with Google Maps, Google Assistant, Play Store and Volvo On Call.

"We have said this several times before: for Volvo Cars, the future is electric", said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive officer of Volvo Cars.

Volvo plans to reduce both operational and vehicular emissions. Moving forward, Recharge will be the overarching name for all chargeable Volvos with a fully electric and plug-in hybrid powertrain.

It will be the first of five fully electric models the firm will launch in the next five years, and Volvo is aiming for EVs to account for half of its global sales by 2025, with the rest featuring a hybrid powertrain.
