2022 Volvo XC40 launch tomorrow : Check expected price, features and more
Volvo Cars India is all set to announce the price of XC40 Recharge, its first ever electric vehicle for the Indian market. Volvo will reveal the price of the XC40 Recharge tomorrow, July 26, during a virtual launch. The Swedish carmaker had earlier unveiled the XC40 Recharge electric SUV, but the scheduled launch was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The XC40 Recharge is the electric version of one of Volvo's most popular models in India. The carmaker will locally assemble the XC40 Recharge, which could lead to lower than expected price for the electric SUV.
Along with the launch, Volvo is also expected to open the bookings for the XC40 Recharge SUV. Expect the deliveries to start closer to the festive season this year. Volvo XC40 Recharge SUV will rival the likes of Kia EV6 among other premium electric cars in the market.

Expect the Volvo XC40 Recharge SUV to be priced in the range between ₹60 lakh and ₹70 lakh (ex-showroom). This will pitch it up against Kia EV6, also priced similarly. Hyundai Ioniq 5, which is expected to launch later this year, will also be one of the rivals for XC40 Recharge.
