2021 Volvo C40 Recharge: Coupe XC40 with the Polestar 2’s soul

Don’t let the C40 name fool you, this is a crossover with a swoopy roof and a hatchback not a cool coupe or convertible.

The C40 is a “coupe” version of the XC40, and the Recharge model will only be sold online.

It has the same AWD powertrain as the XC40 Recharge and Polestar 2 with 2 electric motors making a total of 300kW (402hp) and 660Nm (487 lb-ft).

The 78kWh battery has a 420km (261mi) WLTP range, and can be recharge to 80% in 30 minutes using a fast charger.

Production begins summer 2021 in Ghent, Belgium.
