2022 Volvo C40 Recharge Range, Pricing & Specs

To understand precisely what the 2022 Volvo C40 is, we need to take a look at the source of her inspiration. She's an evolution of past success, infused with the DNA of two current models. The award-winning Volvo C30 was a hatchback produced by Volvo Cars from 2006 to 2013 and was one of the first Volvo cars to feature the scalable Drive-E platform. The 2022 Volvo C40 continues to move the sport-hatch bodystyle forward, but it does so with heavy influence from the critically-acclaimed Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Polestar 2. Polestar is the stand-alone performance arm of Volvo Cars.

Exact EPA mileage has not been released, but we can lean on the fact that the Polestar 2 gets an EPA rated 233 miles of pure EV cruising while the Volvo XC40 Recharge delivers an estimated 208 miles of pure EV driving.1 Both of these vehicles share nearly the same underpinnings, with bodyweight being a key differentiating factor (perhaps accounting for the difference in mileage estimates). The Volvo C40 Recharge pure electric slots between these two, so one can speculate about her estimated range.

The 2022 Volvo C40 uses the 75-kWh lithium-ion battery and two electric motors for permanent eAWD. This delivers 402hp with a gut-punching 0-60 of just 4.7 seconds. This particular platform can charge from 0 to 80% full in about 40 minutes (with the right equipment), and drivers can enjoy wall-charging, AC charging, or DC fast-charging. While the official Volvo C40 price hasn't been released yet, we're anticipating it to fall between the Volvo XC40 Recharge, which starts at an MSRP of $53,900, and the Polestar 2, which starts at an MSRP of $59,990.2 Both vehicles qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit, as will the 2022 Volvo C40.

Volvo C40 Interior & Technology

There are many things that are unique about the Volvo C40, but none more so than the cabin, where you'll be spending most of your time. The cabin will offer the first luxurious seating trims without the use of any animal material. The Volvo C40 borrows storage solutions also found in the Volvo XC40 Recharge and innovative design cues from the Polestar 2. The Polestar 2 offers signature trim options based on the names of some of the most dynamic cities in the world. As a nod to the brand's global fingerprint, you'll see an illuminated topographical map as a dash-trim in the Volvo C40.

Another notable point about the Volvo C40 EV relates to the experimental purchasing platform released with this vehicle. You'll be able to reserve, configure, and order your Volvo C40 fully remote without ever needing to visit a showroom. Other enhancements will include the all-new Google operating system, innovative adapt & dip LED headlights, as well as the latest level-4 autonomous driving suite from Volvo Cars (likely as an option only). The only model to offer a semi-autonomous driving mode as a standard feature is the Volvo XC90 family of vehicles. This nameplate includes the Volvo XC90 Recharge plug-in hybrid and the forthcoming Volvo XC90 EV.
