Geely owned Sweden-based Auto Manufacturer Volvo has finally pulled the wraps off its first all-wheel-drive Pure Electric SUV Volvo XC40 Recharge at the launch event held in Los Angeles, California.
The company has not announced given a word about the price of the vehicle or when it will be available in the US or any other country in the world.
Volvo XC40 Recharge specifications:
Volvo XC40 Recharge is a four-door SUV powered by a 78kWh battery pack that is placed underneath the passenger area and runs the dual motors in the vehicle that generates 408 horsepower which is much powerful than a small SUV.
It can go from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds, not a drag racing car just fast enough to give you an adrenaline rush. The company is targeting to provide a good-range of 200 miles (~321 kilometers) from the vehicle using different modes available in the car but official numbers are not available yet.
In the inside, it features Volvo’s new infotainment system powered by Google’s Android operating system which will provide over-the-air updates. It is integrated with Volvo On Call, the company’s digital connected services platform.
Volvo XC 40 comes with a fast-charger system that can charge the car from 0-80 percent in just 40 minutes.
Volvo has announced that the company will reduce its per-car lifecycle carbon footprint by 40 percent between 2018 and 2025. The company has also announced that it will announce a new electric vehicle every year and the future lineups will include hybrids BEVs which means we can expect the XC60 Recharge soon.
Volvo has changed its manufacturing process which now includes using recycled and renewable material and its suppliers are doing the same as one of its battery suppliers uses recycled cobalt for old batteries.
