This is the first look at the all-new 2021 Volvo XC40. The all-electric SUV will be on sale in late 2020 as a model for 2021. Based on the compact XC40 SUV, the recharge variant should offer everything. The price starts at less than $ 50,000, which is good for fans around the world. Instead of the quad turbine engine, the recharging uses the electric powertrain and will produce 402 hp.
The driving range will also be impressive, between 200 and 300 miles. The charging variant will differ in appearance from the regular XC40, but the interior is largely preserved. This model will compete with models such as Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-Tron and Hyundai Kona EV.
2021 Volvo XC40 charging different from the regular model?
In addition to replacing a conventional gasoline engine with a fully electric motor, the recharge version looks different. The upcoming 2021 Volvo XC40 comes with a unique interface. For starters, the front grille has disappeared and a flat surface is now available. The reason is simple because there is no cooling engine, so the network has no real function. In addition, no drive means more storage space for this crossover. As with Tesla models, “frunk” will be available in advance.
Inside, you can expect a new infotainment system with Google Android. This makes Recharge the first car to partner with such a Google. In addition, you get the Google Store, Google Assistant, and Google Maps integrated. On the other hand, if you are using an Apple iPhone, don’t worry. The system will also include CarPlay phone integration. We still do not know what level of autonomy will be available.
2021 Volvo XC40 Full electric powertrain, acceleration and drive
Unlike the regular XC40 with a four-cylinder turbo engine, this version uses fully electric driving lines. The all-new 2021 Volvo XC40 will produce 402 hp. This is a big power for a compact SUV. In addition, the Swedish automaker offers a standard SUV system. According to Volvo, XC40 recharging is as efficient as it is fast. Additionally, this model will run at speeds from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. As for driving range, the XC40 Recharge offers 250 miles.
Converted to kilometers, that’s about 400. The EPA hasn’t yet rated this model, so it’s just the promised numbers from Volvo. In fact, these numbers are usually lower. Suppose 200 miles of combined driving is real, comparable to the new Audi e-Tron electric crossover SUV. It takes about 40 minutes to 80 minutes for the new Volvo to charge on a fast charging system.
2021 Volvo XC40 price and arrival date
How much will the V2021 Volvo XC40 cost? According to countless reliable sources, the cost of these SUVs does not exceed $ 50,000. At this price, the recharge model costs less than its competitors such as Jaguar I-Pace and Audi e-Tron. The Swedish manufacturer will release its new model later this year as the 2021 model.
Finally, Volvo said the company will launch at least one electric model every year. This reduces Volvo’s climate footprint by 40 percent and makes the car manufacturer completely climate neutral by 2040.
