New 2021 Volvo XC40 Pure-Electric Luxury SUV for Sale or Lease

The 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge: It might even recharge you

It's the first fully electric car from Volvo: The new 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge at Mitchell Volvo in Simsbury, CT is referred to by Volvo as a "pure electric." That's because it's not a hybrid, it's not partially electrified, it's "pure electric." This luxury car's power comes from two electric motors generating 201 horsepower and an impressive 486 pound-feet of torque. It's also the first electric luxury SUV to win an IIHS Top Safety Pick + designation.


The new Volvo XC40 Recharge uses two electric motors, one powering the front wheels and one driving the back. That helps create an all-wheel drive system that works all the time. The 402 horsepower drive train hits zero-to-60 mph in less than 5 seconds, so please accelerate responsibly. The car's range is 208 miles on a single charge. You can do an 80% fast-charge in 40 minutes, which isn't the 5-minute fill-up of a gas vehicle, but it's acceptable for an electric.


For information and entertainment, the new Volvo XC40 uses software based on Google's Android system. There's an instrument panel with a good-sized screen just over 12 inches. And even though the system is Google/Android-based, you can get built-in smartphone compatibility for both Apple iPhone and Android devices. Do you like the idea of charging your smartphone wirelessly? That's an available upgrade.

Of course, one of the key issues that every electric vehicle owner must deal with is the prospect of running out of charge along with the challenges of finding a recharging station and waiting hours for a full recharge. The Volvo XC40 Recharge helps address that problem with an electronic route planner that gives you an early heads up when power is running down and provides suggestions on where you might be able to get recharged.


Storage space in the new Volvo XC40 is enlarged by the elimination of a gas-powered engine, creating the opportunity for storing things up front under the hood. This Volvo puts the driver in a comfortable configuration and allows for a nice amount of space in both rows of seats. Storage for smaller items is handled by some creative cubbyholes strategically located throughout the vehicle.

An available option in the new 2021 Volvo XC40 is an upscale sound system designed by the eminent Harman Kardon audio experts. Multiple speakers are located throughout the cabin, so you're surrounded by your favorite music as you head out on the road from your home in Hartford or West Hartford, CT.


The 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is designed in a way that's similar to the gas-powered models, with one major exception being its covered grille. Wheels are available in a version that's 19 inches, standard, with an available 20-inch alloy wheel version that Volvo fans will admire all over Farmington CT.


As we would expect from Volvo, the new 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge is the first all-electric luxury sport utility vehicle to take home a Top Safety Pick + award from the National Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Among its safety strengths is the ability to detect nearby pedestrians or cyclists and brake automatically to help protect them if they get too close. There are also systems to help keep you in your lane and avoid following another car too closely.
