2022 Volvo XC40 vs 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric

Serving Chamblee, GA

The Volvo XC40 is a sleek, agile crossover SUV that made its debut in 2019. It was introduced with a gas-powered engine, and it was also released with an all-electric variant known as the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric. Our associates at Dyer & Dyer Volvo Inc. understand the importance of making a well-informed model selection. We are ready to support your comparison of these two strong contenders.


The 2022 Volvo XC40 is offered with two gas powertrain options. The base-level engine is a turbo 2.0-liter, a four-cylinder system that puts out 187 horsepower. The more advanced option steps up production to 248 horsepower. Both of these engines are mated with an eight-speed auto transmission. The 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric, on the other hand, combines its lithium-ion battery pack with front and rear-mounted motors. This four-wheel drive system is capable of generating 402 horsepower. The battery has a range of 208 miles.


Visually, the primary differences between these models are their grille design and the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric’s charging port. The XC40 has a chrome-on-black grille with a sash-style element. The grille on the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has a bright steel finish. Both vehicles have confident angles through the profile and a deep scoop through the lower-side panels. They also have arrow-like LED headlights and molded wheel wells. Notably, the all-electric model has a black roof and black lower-body molding for added differentiation.


You will find many of the same premium features in both of these Volvo models. For example, they both come with a 12.3-inch infotainment system screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a keyless engine starter, a power liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, and leather material in their base trim level. They are also offered lane-keep assist, a blind-spot monitor, and driver attention warning across all of their trim levels.

** This is an electric vehicle. Since electricity is not measured in gallons, a conversion factor is used to translate the fuel economy into miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe). Use for comparison purposes only. Your MPGe will vary for many reasons, including but not limited to, driving conditions, how and where you drive, how you maintain your vehicle battery-package/condition, and other factors.
