In pics: Volvo launches all-electric C40 Recharge SUV coupe
The Volvo C40 Recharge will be manufactured at the same plant in Ghent, Belgium as the XC40 Recharge and will use the same CMA platform.
Volvo has launched the new all-electric C40 Recharge - its first product to be offered as an electric only model and first to be sold exclusively online.
The C40 Recharge electric car is based on the CMA platform, much like the XC40 Recharge SUV. It is a slightly lower crossover than the XC40 Recharge SUV from which it derives, which allows it to gain in aerodynamic efficiency and reduce consumption of electricity.
C40 Recharge is the first car of the brand that does not offer leather and that introduces an infotainment system developed by Google based on the Android operating system.
Being permanently connected to the network will allow the Volvo C40 Recharge operating system to be updated remotely and incorporate more features.
