Fully-Electric Volvo XC40 And C40 Recharge Arriving In PH This October

The fully-electric Volvo XC40 and C40 Recharge models are officially coming to the Philippines on October 4.

Volvo Philippines is geared to launch its two new all-electric models on October 4, 2023. The pure electric Volvo C40 Recharge Twin and the XC40 Recharge Twin models are revved up to roll on Philippine roads by the start of the fourth quarter of this year.

“We are thrilled to introduce two purely electrifying models – the Volvo C40 and the Volvo XC40. These models both carry Volvo Cars’ ambition of becoming a fully electric car company by 2030. We believe it’s time for the Philippine market to discover the benefits of driving a pure electric Volvo car and experience for themselves what sustainable mobility is,” enthused Volvo Philippines President and CEO Atty. Albert Arcilla.

Both the C40 Recharge Twin and XC40 Recharge Twin share identical dimensions as they share the same platform. At the core, the twins also run on twin motors with 408 horsepower and 660 Nm of torque. Both are all-wheel drive variants that deliver impressive range.

This configuration, paired with an 82 kWh battery pack and overall efficiency improvements in battery cooling, means the XC40 Recharge Twin Motor AWD can now drive up to 537 kilometers on a single charge (WLTP). The range of the C40 Recharge Twin Motor AWD has improved up to 549 kilometers from 447 kilometers (WLTP) when it was first launched globally.

In the Philippines, Volvo is the first luxury car brand to bring in plug-in hybrid vehicles in the market. In 2022, Volvo Cars Philippines introduced a lineup of mild hybrid vehicles, making the company the first luxury car brand to offer an all-electrified range in the country.
