The all-new Volvo XC40 Recharge has landed in Santa Rosa, and it introduces the Bay Area to Volvo’s first mass-market electric vehicle. At Smothers European, we know there are a lot of things you want to know about the first Volvo EV to hit Sonoma County, and we’re here to help you find the answers you need before you pay us a visit.

How Far Can I Go With the New Volvo XC40 Recharge?

The range from a full charge with the Volvo XC40 Recharge is rated at over 200 miles, meaning you can easily make your daily drives all week without having to worry about plugging in. However, if you’re taking on an extended road trip, read below to see how the XC40 Recharge makes it easy to keep things moving forward.

How Quickly Can I Recharge The Volvo XC40 EV?

The 2020 Volvo XC40 Recharge will allow you to go from 10 percent to 80 percent of battery life with just 40 minutes on a fast charger. That means that even your longest road trips are a breeze! Just find a fast charging station while you grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and the Volvo XC40 Recharge will be ready to keep you on the road for another three-plus hours at typical highway speeds.

Is the Volvo XC40 Recharge Fun to Drive?

In a word, yes. The Volvo XC40 Recharge uses a 402-horsepower electric power unit to push you from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. That’s serious acceleration for any compact crossover, and is on par with some popular sports cars. Even better, the batteries are mounted low in the frame and there is no bulky engine up front, so the Volvo XC40 Recharge has a low and centered center of gravity. That allows it to stay planted in the corners no matter how hard you chuck it in.

Can the Volvo XC40 Recharge Tow?

You will be pleased to know that this compact Volvo electric crossover can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. For context, a 16-foot fiberglass boat with a trailer will weigh in at around 1,800 pounds, but it is always important to know the precise weight of your trailer before hooking up.
