Volvo’s new electric vehicle is helping to propel the company into an all-electric future

In the coming years we will see more and more special models from Volvo on the road: those that drive purely electrically.

“Volvo is committed to being carbon neutral by 2040. And part of getting there is being a 100% electric car company by 2030,” said Russell Datz, spokesman for Volvo Car USA.

First up was the XC40 Recharge, a purely battery-powered version of the traditional XC40. It was a stepping stone for Volvo to enter the EV business.

Now has joined him Charge C40which will be electric from launch and has a base price of $58,750 before incentives.

“The C40 is Volvo’s first-ever pure electric vehicle and marks a real turning point in the company’s journey,” said Datz.

If you like Volvos, you’ll probably like this electric Volvo too. It’s got all the look and feel of the Swedish brand’s modern products, but it just glides electric with an estimated range of 226 miles.

And it’s obviously a compact SUV, which isn’t just a hot segment in general right now, but one where EVs seem to be really going mainstream from a range of car brands.

If you’re not ready to make the switch to a pure electric car just yet, A: You’re not alone. And B: There are ways to ease your transition to EV driving.

Volvo now assigns the Recharge name to its plug-in hybrid models, and there’s an updated XC60 Recharge. Pure battery range is up to 35 miles, but then you have a turbocharged petrol engine that will take you anywhere you want to go. The XC60 Recharge had a base price of $54,250.

“Plug-in hybrids of any kind are a great stepping stone for people who are interested in getting into a pure electric car but may not be ready,” Datz said.

There’s no official word on how much longer you’ll be able to buy a Volvo with an internal combustion engine and a fuel tank, but these will eventually be phased out.

“We are committed to electric cars. By 2030, every car we make will be purely electric, and we aim to achieve that goal,” added Datz.
