The XC40 has been a successful offering for Volvo here in India and the XC40 Recharge is looking at building on its strength. It has a claimed range of over 400 kilometres and a certified range of around 335 kilometres. This is largely thanks to a 78 kWh battery pack at its core.

The XC40 electric claims to hit 100 kmph in 4.7 seconds and - much like all Volvo cars being rolled out now - have a capped top speed of 180 kmph.

Globally, Volvo is looking at mounting a challenge to the dominance enjoyed by Tesla models and starts at a price point of $53,990 in the US market which makes it take Tesla Model Y head on. In India, it could be priced very competitively if compared to some of its rivals. Although the price structure here has not been revealed, it could be somewhere in the region of 60 lakh (ex showroom) and upwards.

And while the XC40 Recharge may well be the biggest highlight for Volvo in India this year, it is a packed 2021 for the company. It is confirmed that the car maker will also drive in the updated S90, XC60 as well as C40 Recharge in the Indian market.
