In Belgium, the Volvo plant began to assemble the XC40 Recharge P8 cross-country electric vehicle.

As noted by the manufacturer, the entire circulation scheduled for the current year has already been sold out, and the debut deliveries should start at the end of October. Recall that the presentation of the electric variation of the Volvo XC40 took place in 2019. Unlike the standard gasoline cross, the novelty received a dummy plug instead of a radiator grill and revised bumpers. The power unit of the model includes two electric motors with a total capacity of 408 hp. (660 Nm), and also a 78 kW / h battery. On a single charge, the electric car can cover a distance of up to 400 km according to the WLTP standard.

The crossover accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and accelerates to a maximum of 180 km / h. Note that the main innovation in the cabin is the emergence of a new multimedia system running Android OS that supports all major Google services, special applications and the ability to update software “over the air”.

According to the Swedish brand, the launch of the XC40 Recharge P8 is an important step towards the goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 40% by 2025.

In addition, it was recently reported that the warranty on spare parts of the Swedish company Volvo will become a lifetime. It should be emphasized that this offer applies exclusively to the original elements of the Swedish brand.
