Volvo C40 Recharge starts from 57,995 euros - in the Netherlands

Volvo has opened the order books for the C40 Recharge in the first European countries. The second electric model in the Swedes' current line-up is available to order now in the Netherlands and Norway and from June 3 in Sweden and the UK, with more markets to follow in the coming weeks.

Volvo had unveiled the C40 Recharge as a spin-off of the XC40 Recharge in early March. Both cars use the same powertrain from the CMA platform, so they have 300 kW of power and a 78 kWh battery. On the body, Volvo has given the C40 some standalone elements, such as on the headlights and rear doors, which is why the C40 Recharge is listed as a separate model rather than the XC40 Recharge coupe.

It is not yet known when the C40 Recharge will be available in Germany - and at what price. The prices now known from the Netherlands could be a clue: there, the C40 Recharge is offered from 57,995 euros or in a subscription from 779 euros per month. This means that the additional price to the XC40 Recharge in the Netherlands is 1,500 euros - the latter costs at least 56,495 euros there.

In Germany, the current model of the XC40 Recharge is listed in Volvo's configurator at 57,900 Euros. However, the 3,000 Euros manufacturer's share of the environmental bonus has already been deducted from this price, so the gross list price is 60,900 Euros. If the 1,500 Euros surcharge is taken as a basis, the C40 Recharge could therefore cost 62,400 Euros gross in Germany.
