Volvo Cars is taking a bold lead with electrification in the auto industry. As the first major premium car brand to commit to a hybrid or full-electric powertrain for all our models, we aim to drive the automotive sector forward, improve the quality of the air in our cities and increase our success as a business.
50% of Volvo Cars’ sales volume to be fully electric by 2025.
Volvo Cars has committed to putting one million electrified cars on the road by 2025.
The full electric powertrain – for a silent, powerful and refined zero tailpipe emission driving experience.
The powerful combination of an electric motor and combustion engine can allow zero tailpipe emission commuting in Pure electric mode, as well as fuel-efficient long-distance driving in Hybrid mode.
The Volvo Pure Electric lineup, including the C40 & XC40 Recharge, is the future of driving a car. With that, Volvo’s One Price Promise is the the future of buying one.
Fair, transparent, and negotiation-free. That’s the kind of seamless shopping experience that Volvo offers on all pure electrics. More than a price is a commitment to consistency. Experience it for yourself by booking a test drive in one of our pure electric vehicles.
Our first pure electric SUV has arrived to Carling Motors Volvo. Combining true SUV styling, a high-performing electric powertrain, long range and smart practicality, you don’t have to compromise anymore to drive in a more sustainable way.
The C40 Recharge is an expression of our desire to change perceptions – and hopefully a catalyst for more sustainable choices in personal mobility. Our first pure electric crossover. Streamlined silhouette and contrast roof create a standout profile. Seamlessly connecting you and your electric drive.
Now available at Carling Motors Volvo.
Our no-compromise combination of plug-in battery electric power and an efficient petrol engine provides low to zero tailpipe emissions, excellent flexibility and a powerful driving experience. A Volvo plug-in hybrid car has both an electric motor and a petrol engine – Twin Engine. For electric power, there’s a battery that can easily be charged at home or at a charging station.
What are the main benefits of an electrified powertrain over a conventional combustion engine?
Electrified powertrains offer a range of benefits – from reducing emissions during driving and likely lower operating costs, to delivering a more refined drive and responsive acceleration feel on take-off.
It depends. We offer a range of electrified powertrains that include mild hybrids, plug-in hybrids and pure electric cars. Fully electrified powertrains have likely lower operating costs, and falling battery costs makes even more sense to choose an electrified car.
Most people charge their cars at home overnight, with a charging wall box in their carport or garage. Others have the possibility to charge their car at work or at public charging stations, which in many areas are becoming increasingly easier to find. Owners can use a standard outlet, which takes a while, or install a wall charger for a much quicker charge. All electric vehicles come with a 110-volt-compatible, or Level 1, home connector kit. It’s essentially a fancy extension cord that allows your car to be plugged into a standard outlet on one end and into the car on the other end.
The cost for electricity varies depending on local conditions, but the cost can be lower compared to petrol or diesel. The lowered fuel cost is also one of several reasons to switch to an electric car. And for even lower costs, you can pre-set the upcoming XC40 Recharge to charge at the times when the tariffs are the lowest, often at night.
The estimated battery life span (down to 80-70% energy retention) is 10-15 years or a total driving distance of 246,000-300,000 km/153,000–187,000 miles and 1,500 full charging cycles at 80% energy retention. The Volvo Cars Warranty is at least 78% energy retention after 8 years or 160,000 km/100,000 miles, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.
Is maintaining an electric vehicle more expensive?
Although electric vehicles still require regular maintenance, due to fewer mechanical parts, lack of engine oil changes, and even less brake services, it is estimated that they have lower maintenance costs. A replacement battery can be expensive, but unlike the frequent costs of maintaining a gas-powered vehicle, there’s every possibility your battery could require no maintenance during your ownership period. Plus, the Volvo Cars Warranty for the battery is 8 years or 160,000km, whichever occurs first, provided that the car and battery are maintained and used in accordance with Volvo Cars’ recommendations.
