2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric Australian Price And Specs

Author: |

The facelifted 2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric compact SUV's cost and specs have been revealed in Australia. The EV crossover's cost and specs have been released by Volvo Australia ahead of its arrival in the nation. In the third quarter of 2022, the first deliveries are expected.

The MY23 Single Motor variant is powered by a front-axle electric motor with 227 horsepower and 330 nm of torque, combined with a 69kWh battery for a 7.4-second 0-100km/h time and a peak speed of 180km/h.

Volvo Australia claims a WLTP range of 380 kilometers, however, Volvo's European websites claim 423 kilometers — compared to 418 kilometers for the dual-motor model, thanks to a bigger 78kWh battery.

The dual-motor flagship uses two 201 hp electric motors to provide 402 horsepower and 660Nm of combined all-wheel-drive power and torque, sufficient for a 4.9-second 0-100km/h pace. 150kW DC fast charging is available on both XC40 variants.

The revamped MY23 range will see the debut of a new single-motor model in Volvo Australia dealerships, after tremendous demand for the pre-facelift, dual-motor electrified XC40 released in August 2021.

The restyled front end of the 2023 XC40 Recharge Pure Electric range is comparable to the coupe-styled C40, with sharper headlights, a frameless grille, and reworked intakes, as well as new wheel design and rear bumper elements.

The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric Single Motor starts at $72,990 before on-road costs, which is $4000 less than the sole MY22 electric variant and $7000 less than the MY23 dual-motor model, which has increased in price by $3000 to $79,990 due to new Pixel LED headlights, a new 20-inch wheel design, and new sustainable upholstery.

The single-motor variant's full standard features have yet to be revealed, but Volvo has confirmed that it will include 19-inch alloy wheels, Google infotainment software, LED headlights, wireless phone charging, heated front, and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, and a reversing camera.

New Pixel LED headlights, a new wheel design, and a new sustainable seat upholstery material will all be included in the 'Twin Motor.'

Following the debut of the MY22 XC40 Recharge Pure Electric in August 2021, there was enormous demand for the electric SUV, with the electric SUV accounting for 21% of all Volvo Australia sales in September and the full Model Year 2022 allotment selling out by the end of November.

In the third quarter of 2022, the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is expected to arrive in Australia.
