A remarkable number of reservations were made for the C40 Recharge within one month of its debut, according to the Swedish luxury automobile manufacturer. The company has recently introduced its first ground-up electric vehicle (EV) in India, the C40 Recharge, which was launched in September.
The XC40 is to be offered exclusively in its all-electric version following the enthusiastic response to Volvo’s electric cars in India. In addition, Volvo has announced a special “Festive Delight Offer” for purchasers of the XC40 Recharge. The company stated that this offer is valid for a limited time and while supplies last.
To reach 35 percent of EV sales next year, Volvo plans to launch the C40 Recharge. In the first half of 2023, XC40 Recharge generated 25 percent of the company’s sales.
Featuring a sloping roofline and a two-part spoiler, the C40 Recharge is designed in the style of a coupe. A Pixel LED headlight and split LED taillight are included. Interior features include a 9.0-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and wood inlays on the dashboard, as seen in the XC40 Recharge. Additionally, the C40 Recharge comes with an onboard e-SIM and Android-based infotainment.
Compared to the XC40 Recharge, the C40 Recharge has a smaller boot with 413 liters as opposed 452 liters. There is no change to the trunk space, which remains 31 liters. As part of Volvo’s commitment to reduce animal cruelty and carbon emissions, the C40 Recharge has a leather-free interior.
