The C40 Recharge competes with the Kia EV6, which has a similar price tag.

Volvo has announced the launch of the C40 Recharge at an introductory price of Rs 61.25 lakh (ex-showroom).

The C40 Recharge is Volvo’s second all-electric model for the Indian market. It has been positioned above the XC40 Recharge, which costs Rs 56.90 lakh.

The C40 Recharge is an electric SUV with a coupe-like design. The front fascia of the car looks similar to the electric version of the XC40. The rear features a more raked windshield with striking LED tail lights that follow the contours of the rear fascia.

Inside, the C40 Recharge comes with a portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system mounted in the centre, a 3-spoke steering wheel and a digital instrument cluster. The car is also equipped with a panoramic sunroof, a wireless phone charger, an air purifier and a Harman Kardon sound system. The C40 Recharge also gets ADAS.

According to Volvo, the improved range is a result of a new battery management system and the car’s low-drag design.
