The XC40 Recharge also features an Android-powered infotainment system that integrates with Volvo's On Call digital connected services platform that tracks electrified drive time.

The XC40 Recharge is Volvo's first fully-electric vehicle, and the first auto to appear in the automaker's "Recharge" vehicle line.

After posting endless teasers, Volvo Cars has finally pulled the wraps off its first full-electric vehicle - the XC40 Recharge.

As for charging, typical Level 1 and Level 2 options will be built in. Based on the 2018 European vehicle of the Year victor, the XC40 Recharge has a total system output of 296bhp and a claimed range of more than 249 miles.

The XC40 Recharge and the Recharge vehicle line are also tangible proof points of the company's ambitious new action plan, also launched today, which represents concrete actions in line with the Paris climate agreement and supports Volvo Cars' ambition to become a climate-neutral company by 2040.

Times earlier this month. "We think it will be hard.to grow much more in the USA , and we suspect pricing power is limited". Still, the company said in its forecast that it expected its growth in subscribers would slow down year over year.

In order to achieve this massive 40% (per car) CO2 footprint reduction by 2025, Volvo is looking to fight on multiple fronts, with one goal being to generate 50% of its global sales from fully electric cars by 2025, which in turn would result in a 50% reduction in tailpipe carbon emissions per auto between now and that same year.

The new Volvo XC40 Recharge SUV gets two 150 kW electric motors mounted on the front and rear axle that produce about 402 bhp and 659 Nm of peak torque. Besides, the unspecified battery should be able to be charged 80 per cent in 40 minutes at a fast-charging station.

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. Volvo aims to reduce its carbon footprint by 40 percent by 2025 and go carbon neutral by 2040.

To help achieve that, Volvo's all-electric vehicle sales goal is an ambitious 50% of global sales by 2025, with the rest of sales to be plug-in hybrids.

"We have said this several times before: for Volvo Cars, the future is electric", Håkan Samuelsson, chief executive at Volvo said. In order to meet the already growing demand for PHEV models, the Swedes want to triple production capacities for electrified vehicles. Prices for the XC40 Recharge are not yet quoted by Volvo.
