Volvo XC40 Recharge Safety Features

As you would expect from Volvo, the Volvo XC40 Recharge comes packed with safety technology to help make your time behind the wheel safer. The Volvo City Safety suite of features includes both forward collision alert and pedestrian detection to help you avoid vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists when cruising through town. And when you hit the open road, this system can detect large animals as well, helping keep you safe even outside city limits.

Highway safety features include a lane keep assist system with steering assist to help you maintain your lane without drifting into adjacent vehicles. To make a lane change, just use the turn signal and the system will deactivate to let you change lanes unbothered, and then kicks on again to read the markings in the new lane. You'll also have adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality to assist you with congested traffic, whether you're cruising along or sitting in a traffic jam.

Common Questions About Driving an Electric SUV

How Fast is the Volvo XC40 Recharge?

While the Volvo XC40 EV is certainly all about electric power and being environmentally conscious, Volvo has taken advantage of the power available with electric motors to create a truly fun-to-drive electric crossover. At 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque, you can have plenty of fun when you decide to put your foot down. Getting to 60 mph from a standstill takes just 4.7 seconds, putting it on par or better than several modern sports cars, without spending a drop of fuel.

What is the Range of the Volvo XC40 Recharge?

From a full charge, the 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge can travel an EPA-estimated 208 miles before needing to be plugged in again. It’s enough to handle your average daily commute for a full week without requiring a charge, and can even handle longer road trips with ease.

How Quickly Does the Volvo EV Recharge?

When it is time to plug in your Volvo XC40 Recharge, you can recover up to 80 percent of the charge in just 40 minutes on a fast charging station. In just over an hour you’ll achieve a full 100 percent charge to maximize range between stops.

Can I use the Volvo XC40 Recharge for Long Trips?

While you’ll certainly have to make some adjustments to your itinerary, you can easily road trip in the Volvo XC40 Recharge. In fact, there are tools built into the in-dash navigation system that take into account elevation, speed limits, and traffic to estimate your range and help you plan recharging stops along your route. It ensures you know which charging stations to take advantage of, so you never have to worry about range anxiety if there is a long distance between charging options. With a vast network of stations across the country, you can road trip almost anywhere without having any issues plugging in when needed. And with fast charging times, you can pull off, enjoy a sit-down lunch or dinner, and by the time you’re ready to go you’ll have hundreds of miles of range to work with once again.
