Volvo has confirmed the new fully electric XC40 will go on sale in late 2020 as it rebrands its plug in car range as ‘Recharge’. Prices are expected to start at around £50,000 for the new model which will have a range of around 250 miles. 
 
The XC40 Recharge will be the first in a family of fully electric Volvos, with a new model planned to launch every year for the next five years. Recharge will be the overarching name for all chargeable Volvos with both a fully electric and plug in hybrid powertrain. 
 
To further encourage electric driving, every Volvo Recharge plug in hybrid model will come with free electricity for a year provided through a refund for the average electricity cost during that period. 
 
There will be little styling differences between the XC40 Recharge and a conventional petrol or diesel model. 
 
To meet the anticipated demand for its Recharge cars, Volvo will triple production capacity for electrified cars.
