What You Can Expect on the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Release Date

The 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric SUV set the trend for Volvo Cars. By 2025, the brand seeks to have at least 50% of its sales be from electrified vehicles. Volvo Cars is well on its way thanks to the pioneering Volvo XC40 Recharge, which now shares the stage with her close cousin the 2022 Volvo C40 Recharge. Two new trims are available for the Volvo XC40 Recharge:

  • The 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric P8 Plus
  • The 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric P8 Ultimate

Let's decode them both for a second. The suffix designation is the trim level; the "pure electric P8" refers to the powertrain and the proper noun "Recharge" is given to all electrified Volvo Cars models, including plug-in hybrids. But wait, there's more! You might even see this vehicle listed as the Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin Plus for sale. Is there any difference? The "Twin" designation simply refers to the dual-motor setup that all 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric models share.

2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric FAQs

What is the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge release date?

Our order call is open, and we are taking reservations now. The very first examples are expected to debut before the end of 2021. While global supply chain shortages might affect this timeline somewhat, we plan on seeing them in our showroom no later than Q1 2022.

Can a Volvo Recharge use a Tesla charger?

That depends on the type of Tesla charger you're referring to. Only Tesla vehicles can charge at a Tesla Supercharger. Even though you might physically be able to plug your vehicle in using an adapter, proprietary software is what makes the connection. That said, any normal Tesla wallbox, Level 1, or Level 2 charger can charge other vehicles, including the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric. You will need an adapter to fit your standard J-plug connector. Dozens of adapters are available.

Does the Volvo XC40 self-charge?

No. However, with the Volvo On Call app, you can pre-program your vehicle to charge when you need her to when plugged in at home. For instance, you can time self-charging cycles to take advantage of off-peak power rates. Clearing up a common misunderstanding, regenerative braking does not fully recharge battery power on this system. It prolongs battery life through wasted energy capture.

How much does it cost to charge a Volvo?

Free, in some cases. Wherever you live, do a search for free EV charging stations near me. You'll be shocked by what you find available in your area. Free public charging aside, energy rates vary. A general rule of thumb is that the eclectic equivalent of a gallon of gas costs well under half the price of gasoline.

The 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Price Is Only the Beginning
