The C40 Recharge is the first Volvo model designed as a native EV (that is, not adapted from a legacy fossil-fuel vehicle). The new EV, which “has all the benefits of an SUV but with a lower and sleeker design,” will go on sale in the US this year at a starting MSRP of $58,750.
The new C40 Recharge will initially be available in the Ultimate trim level, which incorporates every available feature, including the Android operating system, a fixed Panoramic Moonroof, Pixel LED lighting, Pilot Assist, Harman Kardon Premium Sound, 360° Surround View Camera and 20-inch wheels.
Online pre-orders for the C40 Recharge began in March. Production will begin in Ghent, Belgium this fall, and the first US deliveries are planned for the fourth quarter.
All 2022 Volvo EVs sold in the US will come with 3 years of complimentary charging (up to 250 kWh) on the Electrify America network.
Volvo Cars aims to make fully electric cars 50 percent of its global sales by 2025.
