    Volvo XC40 Recharge hybrid review

    An SUV you can plug-in (PHEV) at home in 2020!
    July 6, 2020

    Has Volvo nailed the formula and created a plug-in hybrid that doesn't feel like a science experiment to drive? The 2020 Volvo XC40 Recharge Plug-In Hybrid T5 R-Design (mouth full) is Volvo's smallest plug-in hybrid SUV. It has a driving range of 46km on full EV mode (28.5 miles) and a combined fuel economy of 2.0L/100km (or 117.5mpg). But is it worth the big price jump over the XC40 T5 R-Design? Paul Maric hits the road to find out!

    Photos and Images of the Volvo XC40 Interior

    For 2023, the XC40 gains USB-C outlets, standard mechanical cushion extensions, and what Volvo calls a “Touring chassis” suspension tune, shared across all petrol-powered models.

    On top of this, the Ultimate B4 Bright gains a surround-view camera and an air purifier.

    The front seats offer a commanding view over the square bonnet, and strike a perfect balance between soft padding and the sort of support you need on longer drives. Volvo traditionally does some of the best pews in the business, and the XC40 continues the tradition.

    Rear seat passengers are better catered for than you might expect of a car that’s relatively compact on paper. For one, they get their own vents, along with a fold-down central armrest and spacious door pockets. The tall roofline means headroom is good enough for adults to get comfortable back there, even with the panoramic sunroof, and the amount of legroom will accomodate tall teenagers.



    Photos and Images of the Volvo XC40 Exterior

    Cosmetic tweaks to the XC40 include a restyled front bumper, new wheel designs, and new headlights with revised LED daytime running light signatures, albeit without a cornering function.

    The Plus B4 loses the old T4 Momentum’s front fog lights, but gains a power tailgate, power passenger seat and power-folding second-row headrests.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Volvo XC40 drivability?

    Petrol-powered 2023 Volvo XC40 models all use a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system, mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

    The front-wheel drive B4 produces 145kW of power at 5400rpm and 300Nm of torque at 4200rpm, while the all-wheel drive B5 produces 183kW and 350Nm.

    The Recharge Pure Electric features a single front-mounted electric motor and front-wheel drive, with 170kW of power and 330Nm of torque.

    The dual-motor all-wheel drive Recharge Twin Pure Electric produces 300kW and 660Nm.

    The claimed 0-100km/h times are as follows:

    • B4: 8.5 seconds
    • B5: 6.4 seconds
    • Recharge: 7.4 seconds
    • Recharge Twin: 4.9 seconds

    Volvo XC40 Warranty

    What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Volvo XC40?

    Volvo covers its cars with a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

    The XC40 is currently offered with a choice of three- or five-year service plans, priced at $1750 and $3000 respectively.

    Volvo XC40 Infotainment

    What infotainment do you get within the range?

    With an upright dashboard and minimalist, crisp lines, you won’t be mistaking the XC40 for anything but a Volvo at first glance. Dominating the dash is a vertically-oriented 9.0-inch touchscreen, which sits in the same housing as the display in the petrol model but runs newer software.

    Like the related Polestar 2, the XC40 Recharge has Android Automotive infotainment. The bones of the software were developed by Google, which means you get Hey Google voice control and Google Maps standard, but the final system is set up by Volvo to look familiar to anyone who’s used the Sensus system in the current XC40.

    It’s snappy to use, and the ability to download apps like Spotify from the Google Play store opens the door for a level of customisation not currently possible in most infotainment systems. Having the same people who do the software for mobile phones design your Bluetooth interface, for example, means this is one of the easiest cars in which to find a contact and make a call on the move.

    When it’s connected to a network, Hey Google is more useful than Hey BMW or Hey Mercedes ever could be… but when it’s not connected to a network, the voice assistant is far less useful. Apple CarPlay mirroring should be available for cars in 2023.

    The driver is faced with a clean, simple digital instrument binnacle with inbuilt Google Maps. It’s excellent, although you’re light on for configuration options compared to what’s on offer in some rival luxury marques.

    Volvo XC40 Boot Space

    How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Volvo XC40?

    Luggage space is 460L, expanding to 1336L with the second row folded. The boot floor is flat, but it can be folded in half hang shopping bags, or raised up to reveal a deep cavity beneath it perfect for storing charge cables – or for hiding bags and laptops.

    There’s a small storage space beneath the bonnet, but it’s not what you’d call capacious. It’s best reserved for the charge cables, but not much more.


    Volvo XC40 Fuel Economy

    How much fuel does the Volvo XC40 use and what are its emissions?

    The 2023 Volvo XC40 uses a claimed 6.9L/100km on the combined cycle in the Plus B4, 7.1L/100km in the Ultimate B4 Bright and 7.2L/100km in the Ultimate B5 Dark.

    The Recharge Pure Electric uses a 69kWh battery, and WLTP-certified figures on the Volvo global site says it has 424km of range.

    The dual-motor version has a 78kWh battery and WLTP range of 417km.

    Both electric models support DC fast charging at up to 150kW and AC charging at up to 11kW.
