C40 Recharge ... the second electric car from Volvo

Swedish automaker Volvo has revealed its next electric vehicle, the C40 Recharge, which is Volvo's second battery-powered electric vehicle after the XC40 has been recharged.

Compared to the XC40 Recharge, the C40 Recharge is slimmer on the same modular platform as the company's first electric vehicle and will go into production at Volvo's Belgian plant in the fall of 2021.

Volvo said: The C40 Recharge has all the benefits of an SUV, but it has a lower, more elegant design, lower roofline and more recline in the rear of the XC40 Recharge.

The biggest difference is the size, as the new car is three inches shorter than its predecessor, and while the company doesn't classify it as a sedan, it appears to have some similarities with the Volvo V40.

The introduction of C40 Recharge brings Volvo closer to its goal of having half the mileage in electrification by 2025.

Volvo today announced that it will be fully electric by 2030 while reducing its lifecycle carbon emissions - the carbon dioxide emissions a vehicle produces over its life cycle, while also reducing its life cycle carbon emissions - the car's CO2 emissions as its service path. Bearing in mind manufacturing and use - by 2015 each vehicle will reduce CO2 emissions by 40%. Same year

According to EPA standards, the C40 has an estimated range of 340 kilometers. Volvo said that the product range will be expanded with the update of the pneumatic software.

The automotive infotainment program is supported by Android Automotive. This means that popular apps (like Google Maps and Google Assistant are used as standard features).

The car is powered by two electric motors, one in the front and the other in the rear, and there is a 78 kW battery (75 kW available) to power the twin-engine powertrain, with a total of 402 hp, and it lasts 4.7 seconds, from 0 to 100 km / h.

The automaker claims that the battery can be charged from 0% to 80% of its capacity in 40 minutes thanks to its 150 kW fast charging system.

For this 11kW AC charger, it will take 8 hours to charge it to 80%.

As we all know, car dealers are hesitant to sell electric cars and Volvo wants to avoid this problem by only selling the new C40 charging station online.

The automaker also said its goal is to sell 50% of global sales online by 2025.
