image Volvo introduced its first fully electric vehicle, the XC40 Recharge, and is as attractive as the XC40 petrol. The XC40 recharge will be the first of a line of plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles with the Recharge brand. Over the next half decade, the company says it will launch a new EV every year and is committed to making half of its line fully electric by 2025.

The recharge's all-wheel-drive electric powertrain develops
408 horsepower, which makes it agile enough to go from zero to 60 mph in a claimed 4.7 seconds. Volvo says the recharge has a 78.0 kWh battery pack supplied by LG and CATL; That is to ensure enough to meet the demand, according to the automaker. It is charged at 80 percent in 7.5 hours at home and in 40 minutes using a fast charging system that we estimate at 50 kW; Volvo has not yet partnered with a cargo network.

The XC40 recharge depends on the 40.1 concept of 2016 and uses Volvo's compact modular architecture, which was designed from the beginning to accommodate electrification. Still, to shore up the structure and ensure that Volvo's reputation for safety remains intact, engineers redesigned and reinforced the front structure. The floor-mounted battery pack is also surrounded by an aluminum safety cage, which according to the company creates a deformation zone for the battery. That could explain the set empty weight of 4840 pounds, approximately 1000 pounds heavier than the heavier XC40 gasoline.

The new XC40 Recharge is the first Volvo to use the new Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which they say is a scalable sensor system with a variety of cameras, radars and ultrasonic sensors. The goal? Eventual autonomous driving, of course.

Inside, the XC40 recharge will make use a new Android-based infotainment system designed by Google. Volvo says Google Assistant, Google Maps and the Google Play store will be incorporated into the configuration of the Android Automotive operating system, and the car will be the first Volvo capable of air updates.

The XC40 recharge will be available in eight colors with a standard contrasting black roof and will use 19 or 20 inch wheels. Inside, Recharge carpets are made of recycled materials, and under that front hood there is a small compartment that contains about a cubic foot of things.

Volvo says it will soon triple its capacity for electrified cars, as all Volvo models in the company's line will eventually have a recharge model. The company has promised that it will increase the "acceptance rate" on plug-in hybrid vehicles from the current 4 percent to 20 percent of its total sales by 2020.
