Volvo XC40 Recharge production begins in Belgium


That’s right. In addition to chocolates, Belgium will now also produce the all-electric Volvo XC40 Recharge — at Volvo’s plant in Ghent. The “customer demand for the XC40 Recharge has been strong,” Volvo said. The first cars are scheduled to be delivered to European customers later this month.

The AWD XC40 Recharge offers an estimated WLTP range of over 400 km (249 mi) while the official EPA range at the time of publishing this story is 208 mi (335 km).

The two electric motors produce a combined 300 kW (408 hp) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque, enabling a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 4.9 seconds. With DC fast-charging, the battery pack is claimed to take approximately 40 minutes to get to 80% charge. More technical info here.
