The latest update for the Volvo XC40 Recharge comes just a few weeks after the automaker pulled the covers off its new EX90 flagship electric SUV. What's more interesting is that the automaker has updated its C40 Recharge as well, which is expected to launch in India sometime in 2023. The C40 Recharge shares several components with the XC40 Recharge, and the updates on both cars are identical.

Volvo Car India currently sells one electric car in the country, in the form of the XC40 Recharge, which is available in the dual-motor P8 variant here. There is no official word yet if the updated XC40 Recharge will also make its way to India.

The luxury car marquee has decided to phase out its existing plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) in favour of electric vehicles. The XC40 Recharge being one of the most affordable luxury EVs, could play a crucial role in that strategy.
