The Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor ER has a maximum power of 185 KW (252 hp/248 bhp). The total torque is 420 nm (310 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 7,3 seconds. The top speed is 160 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 82kWh and a net capacity of 79kWh, meaning you have a 3kWh buffer for protection. (3,7%). The Lithium-Ion battery uses NMC technology.
The WLTP range varies from 581 to 566 km (361-352 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 13.6kWh/100km for the basic version and 14.0kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 205kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 65 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 28 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 1% to 50%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 119kW. Each charge session would take 19 minutes and 27 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 28kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 1 minutes. This trip will require five charge session(s) charging from 1% to 52%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 101 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 7 hours and 10 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the left rear side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you need to back up into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
