2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge with a whopping 402-hp and the instant torque delivery from two electric motors, make it an eco-friendly SUV with serious speed. Apart from the Electric powertrain, the XC40 Recharge is just as feasible and well designed as the gasoline-powered variant. The cargo area is roomy, cleverly furnished with storage cubbies, and has a premium look and feel making it a part of the EV-luxury niche. The Scandinavian Volvo is more good-looking and offers better build quality than the Tesla Model Y, but the driving range isn’t nearly as good. A plethora of desirable safety and convenience features are standard, which includes a semi-autonomous driving mode. Stylish from every angle and in-builts Volvo just flip all the tables in the market. Showed up as Coupe SUV, from bulky to beautiful, this ride is everything. The one to revolve the town without any tussle for gas.
There are not many changes from the 2022 model. While Volvo has given the XC40 Recharge a slight makeover for 2023 which includes a revised front bumper and grille borrowed from the fastback C40 Recharge model. The C40’s more angular LED headlamps also migrate to the XC40 this year. On the inside, the XC40 Recharge gains vegan-friendly vinyl upholstery.
Battery & Performance
All the XC40 Recharge models feature a setup of two electric motors, with one powering the front wheels and the second powering the rears. This gives it a full-time all-wheel drive. The powertrain pumps out a perky 402 horsepower and rockets the XC40 Recharge to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. The ride is compliant and the cruising demeanor is refined. Aggressive riders will find the Polestar 2 a better fit. For one-pedal driving, regenerative braking support is there, which is a desirable and convenient EV feature that is appreciated. A 75.0-kWh battery pack is standard, with an EPA range rating of 223 miles per charge. This range puts the XC40 Recharge on stage to compete with the Audi e-Tron and the Jaguar I-Pace. The charging capabilities are charging at DC fast-charging terminals as well as at-home chargers via a 240-volt outlet.
