Volvo C40 Recharge Home Charging Guide

The C40 Recharge is Volvo's second full-electric vehicle and is essentially a sporty coupé re-work of the XC40 Recharge P8. With a generous WLTP range of 261 miles thanks to its 78kWh battery and a speedy 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds, the C40 Recharge is a perfect vehicle for those looking for a combination of performance, practicality and eye-catching styling.

Charging the Volvo C40 Recharge using a home 7.4kW charge point takes about 12 hours. If you have a three-phase charger installed then you can expect that charge time to drop down to just over eight hours. Take the C40 Recharge to a DC rapid charge point and you can expect a 10% - 80% in about 33 minutes.
