You can get handy features like automatic LED headlights as standard and useful driving aids like a 12.3" driver's display.

Meet the fully electric C40

Upgrade to pure electric with the Volvo C40 Recharge. This luxury SUV has a WLTP certified 260-mile range or 208-miles with an 80% charge, and out traveling you can top up the battery from 10-80% in 33 minutes using a 150kW charger. Google Assistant is built in to find charging stations and plan your route, while advanced safety features like 360° view and flank sensors, blind spot information system, and lane assistance make driving easy, so you can sit back and enjoy the smooth, seamless drive. 
The C40 Recharge stands out with striking pixel LED headlights, sculpted flanks, and a beautiful, eco-friendly interior with recycled materials, and you can control charging, pre-heat the battery, and pre-condition the cabin using the Volvo Cars app. Features include a 12.3” digital driver’s display, 9” touchscreen, wireless charging, keyless drive, an electric tailgate, and a 360 camera. You can also get Pilot Assist, semi-autonomous technology with Adaptive Cruise Control with Distance Alert & Queue Assist that can drive for you at speeds up to 80mph - all you need to do is steer!

Meet the XC60 plug-in hybrid 

Luxury. Power. Space. The XC60 gives your family room to grow and gives you a supreme driving experience. The Dynamic Chassis adjusts to bumps in the road while a suite of driving aids like Adaptive Cruise Control and Pilot Assist automate aspects of your journey.
With clever innovations like the T8 Twin Engine, which combines a turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine with an electric motor, the XC60 is very much a driver’s SUV. It’s set up to handle and thanks to optional all-wheel-drive, it handles all conditions.
Choose from Core, Plus, and Ultimate trim levels and enjoy features like a 12.3” progressive driver’s display, leather seats and a powered tailgate as standard. With the Ultimate trim level, you can experience features like massaging front seats, an Orrefors Crystal gear selector and a head-up display or heated windscreen.

Meet the XC90 plug-in hybrid 

Powerful and packed with advanced technology, the XC90 puts you in control of every journey. T8 Plug-In Hybrid Engine and B5 AWD engines are available, with the T8 Plug-In Hybrid kicking out an impressive 455hp with an electric range over 20 miles. A smooth, responsive 8-Speed Geartronic automatic gearbox ensures effortless journeys, while technologies like a 12.3" Digital Driver Display and Pilot Assist with Adaptive Cruise Control add to your feeling of total control. Oh, and it has seven seats! 
Core, Plus, and Ultimate trim grades are available. Plus offers a higher grade of luxury while Ultimate offers sportier dynamics.
