Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 34h30m 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 21h30m 9 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 10h45m 19 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 7h15m 28 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 7h15m 28 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%

All about the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric

No longer available

This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric was available from October 2021 until February 2022. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric.

A new model of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric (2021) is available: Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric (2022).

Pricing

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric had a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £47,500 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £48,300. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is 170 kW (228 hp). The maximum torque is 243 lb-ft. The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.4 seconds. The top speed is 99 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has a total capacity of 69 kWh. The usable capacity is 67 kWh. A range of about 200 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 140 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 295 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 7 hours 15 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 10 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 19 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 34 hours 30 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 136 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 116 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 140 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is about 335 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 121 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 479 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 227 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
