The Announcement of the Volvo XC40 Pure Electric

Volvo Cars revealed the Volvo XC40 Pure Electric prototype in October of 2019 and shocked the automotive industry. This is the first-ever fully-electric Volvo vehicle. It's all part of their industry-leading green initiatives. By 2025, Volvo Cars aims to have 50% of their sales be electric vehicles. They also hope to have more than one million electric vehicles on the road by the same year. Although the Volvo XC40 Pure Electric release date is just a month away, Volvo Cars plans to release a fully electric version of every single car in their lineup every year over the next five years.

Production of the Volvo XC40 Recharge

In October of 2020, Volvo Cars announced that the production of the Volvo XC40 Pure Electric inventory was in full swing. The vehicle is currently produced entirely in Ghent, Belgium. The Volvo XC40 Recharge was engineered and developed by designer Thomas Ingenlath, who worked side by side with Volvo Cars-led engineering teams in Sweden. The Ghent plant built a limited number of pre-production (or demonstration) cars, which is standard procedure for most new models.

The reason for this is to optimize production flow and ensure top-of-the-line quality for every single Volvo XC40 Recharge that is built. While demonstration cars, like the one at our dealership, began arriving across North America in December, the official deliveries won't start until January. Lucky drivers in Europe began to receive their Volvo XC40 vehicles two months ago.

Pre-Ordering Ahead of the XC40 Pure Electric USA Release Date

Volvo Cars opened U.S. pre-orders in January of 2020 with a refundable $1,000 deposit. The demand was huge, and according to Green Car Reports, the vehicle sold out for the 2021 calendar year. The order books are remaining open, though. Contact your local Volvo Cars dealership to learn more about reserving and owning one for yourself.
