Volvo Recharge models, namely the XC40 and C40 crossovers, receive updates on the styling and technical side.
The Swedish automaker has announced a refreshment of the Volvo XC40 Recharge. The Volvo C40 Recharge has also undergone some changes: it now adds a new single-motor, front-wheel-drive version.
The exterior styling of the compact 2023 XC40 Recharge is brought in line with a sleeker coupe-like C40 Recharge. To be more precise, it’s about a revised, resculpted front bumper, triangular headlights, a frameless grille. New wheel and color options will be available, as well as premium non-leather upholstery variants inside.
The signature Thor’s Hammer headlights are augmented with pixel LED light technology and can automatically adapt to traffic.
As for the Volvo C40 Recharge, it will offer the new aforementioned version with a smaller 69.0-kWh battery and a 269-mile/434-km range according to the WLTP test (approx. 240 miles by EPA); you’ll be able to charge the crossover from 10 to 80 percent in 32 min from a fast charger.
The new variants of the C40, XC40, other new models of Volvo will be available through an updated, easier offer concept. Customers will be able to select from different equipment levels and options that best suit their individual needs.
