The Volvo C40 Recharge starts at $58,750 before charges and taxes in the USA. It’s rather expensive. However, Volvo’s first pure electric car has some counterbalances to this negative. Will there be enough of them?
Back in March, Volvo showed the C40 Recharge for the first time. Design connoisseurs noted the appearance of the new Volvo, reminiscent of a coupe, could become its advantage. Indeed, the Volvo C40 Recharge looks fresher and more stylish than the unitary Volvo XC40 Recharge. The design of the Volvo C40 Recharge certainly attracts.
The second advantage of Volvo’s electric car is its practicality. MotorTrend experts investigated this issue. In particular, they drew attention to the luggage compartment under the hood.
The warranty should also be noted. Volvo provides it for the first 4 years of operation or 40,000 miles of the run.
And finally, there is a ‘bonus’ with the word “free”. All 2022 Volvo EVs in the United States will come with 250-kWh free charging in the Electrify America network. This service will be available for the first 3 years after purchase.
The main disadvantage is the price
The Volvo C40 Recharge U.S. price is the car’s weak point. The Swedish electric car will be more expensive than its direct competitors. Even the larger Tesla Model Y starts at $53,190 versus $58,750 for the C40 Recharge. The equally stylish Ford Mustang Mach E is gaining popularity and will cost from $43,995 at all.
The production of the C40 Recharge will begin this fall at the Volvo plant in Ghent, Belgium. The first cars will reach US shores in the fourth quarter of this year. Now you can pre-order.
