Volvo Cars will launch the XC40 Recharge SUV, its first electric car in India, on July 26. The launch, which was earlier scheduled for last year, was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Volvo Cars recently took the covers off the XC40 Recharge, the electric avatar of its existing XC40 SUV, in India earlier this year. The XC40 Recharge will be be locally assembled in India, as announced by the Swedish carmaker earlier.

Local assembly of the Volvo XC40 Recharge could bring down the cost of the EV by some margin. Volvo is expected to open the bookings for the XC40 Recharge SUV later this month. The deliveries of the SUV will begin closer to the festive season this year. It will rival the likes of Kia EV6 among other premium electric cars in the market.
