Volvo, the premium Swedish car brand renowned for innovation and cutting-edge technology, is reaffirming its commitment to creating a future driven by sustainable clean energy vehicles. The 42nd Bangkok International Motor Show will be the launch venue for Volvo’s most exciting new car release in Thailand, “THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC”. This is the brand’s first 100% electric SUV and it comes packed with industry leading innovations and the kind of styling, inside and out, that Volvo is renowned for worldwide. It will be on show, along with a wide variety of Volvo models with plug-in hybrid systems, at Booth A18, Challenger Hall 1-3, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, from March 24 – April 4, 2021. And to celebrate the future of driving there will be a wide variety of promotions and financial offers for customers at the event and at Volvo workshops until the end of April.
Mr. Chris Wailes, Managing Director of Volvo Cars (Thailand) Co., Ltd. said, “At Volvo, we’re committed to becoming a dedicated electric vehicle manufacturer by 2030 so as to offer our customers unrivalled driving freedom in vehicles designed to satisfy their individual lifestyle needs. The launch of THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC is a proud and exciting moment for us, it is our first 100% electric vehicle, it is the embodiment of our mission to produce vehicles that are not only supremely designed, comfortable, and safe but also help to preserve our fragile environment through sustainable engineering innovations. Customers can place their orders now and shipping will commence from July onwards. But this is just the start, as we plan to continue to launch new fully electric vehicles designed to excite our customers into the future. At Volvo we have always prided ourselves on producing technologically advanced premium performance vehicles that keep our customers safe, and now we’re helping to keep the planet safe too.”
THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC – Make a Powerful Statement
The New Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is the ultimate all-electric SUV from Volvo. It delivers beyond expectations in every aspect and detail, with unsurpassed performance and superiority evident in the design, driving performance, and of course safety technology. Add to that the powerful lithium-ion battery that recharges quickly and safely and our state-of-the-art applications that allow for online connection from anywhere in the world, and you have a superior vehicle that compliments the lifestyles of the new generation who want a car that provides for all their road travel needs but with less of an impact on the world’s resources.
Powered by a lithium-ion battery for premium driving performance
THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC is powered by a 78 kWh lithium-ion battery that can keep drivers on the road for over 400 kilometres when fully charged, according to WLTP testing standards. When being recharged by a standard electric home charger (Wall box EV Changer), 11 kW, it takes approximately 6-8 hours charging time to go from 0% to 100% charge and can be charged to 80% in only 40 minutes. To add to the innovations, drivers can easily set a time to charge the car via the Volvo On Call app.
A new phenomenon in electric vehicle design
By breaking away from the limitations of traditional combustion engines, THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC delivers a new, modern design from every angle. Starting with the front grille, which no longer needs to be used for cooling, it has been redesigned as a unibody cover with a clear Volvo logo, giving the vehicle a unique contemporary look. The area under the bonnet, which no longer houses a fuel engine, has been transformed into a new style of luggage compartment called “Franc (Front Trunk)”, which adds 31 litres of additional storage space, perfect for modern-day life. The rear features a convenient electric tailgate and seeing as how the battery engine does not emit even a small amount of exhaust there is no longer any need for an exhaust pipe which allows for a truly beautiful seamless form on the back end of the car. THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC also comes with a new roof design, elegantly finished in cool black tones and in line with the new diffuser. And when it comes to where the rubber meets the road, the sleek 19-inch alloy wheels with black diamond-cut 5-spoke design, are as eye-catching as they are performance designed. These are just some of the abundance of features that come with this game-changing road machine.
The interior of the cabin is as impressive as the exterior, highlighted in charcoal black tones to give a modern and sporty look, it is complemented by elaborate detailing, such as the black Nappa leather-upholstered gear lever with its elegant contrasting white seams. The seats and all interiors are covered in charcoal black leather and finished with aluminium details to emphasize the refinement and attention to detail put into every aspect of the car, premium luxury has never looked so good.
THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC offers a choice 6 colour schemes to satisfy the individual tastes of every lifestyle, buyers can choose from Denim Blue Metallic, Black Stone, Crystal White Pearl, Fusion Red Metallic, Thunder Gray Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic and the newest colour Sage Green Metallic.
Technology for the most comfortable driving
THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC comes with the latest graphic display technology that allows for drivers to choose between different screen layouts: Calm Mode, Nevi Mode and Car Centric Mode, which show engine status information, the battery level, the charge, and all driving data clearly without any distractions for the driver.
And for the first time, Volvo has partnered with Google to develop an Android Automotive OS application so as drivers can use apps in their car just like they do on smartphones, these include Google Maps, Google Assistant and the “Hey Google” voice control system allowing for easy control of entertainment apps like Spotify and other third-party apps on Google Play.
Complete with world-class safety features
Volvo is a world leader when it comes to understanding that the best protection is to prevent the possible occurrence of any mishaps before they happen. That’s why THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC comes packed with a full set of advanced driving assistance systems, such as Driver Assist with Pilot Assist, Semi-automatic and Adaptive Cruise Control (variable speed control to keep a safe distance from other vehicles), Collision Avoidance (automatic collision avoidance and stop system, which works even at high speed), 360 Camera (directional camera system that helps with parking the car), Blind Spot Information System: BLIS (vehicle presence alert system in the driver’s blind spot), LED active bending headlights with active automatic high beam system, Cross-Traffic Alert with Auto Brake (a warning system that alerts when there is a car approaching from the side while reversing out of parking spaces, with automatic vehicle stop function), Lane Keeping Aid (steering wheel vibration alert when the vehicle goes out of the lane) and many other world-class safety features to give drivers the ultimate peace of mind on every journey. By THE NEW VOLVO XC40 RECHARGE PURE ELECTRIC launched at 2.59 million baht.
Volvo joins hands with partners in Thailand’s leading electric charging station service provider
Volvo Cars Thailand is also partnering with EA Anywhere, the Thai electric vehicle charging station provider which is one of the largest service coverage in Thailand, its vicinities, and upcountry so as to ensure electric vehicle users can travel long distances without the worry of finding a charging station.
