This time, it is Volvo that is once again expressing its desire to support the sustainable mobility craze in the Moroccan market. This comes with the expected launch of two models with high standards. These are the XC40 Electric compact SUV and the C40 Electric coupe crossover. The car is available in the Casablanca showroom, and customers can order both models. With ranges of more than 500 kilometers and shorter charging time, the new models display solid performance.
The Swedish brand’s flagship, the 100% electric XC40, has become, with its ‘Recharge’ line, Volvo’s first all-electric car designed for urban life. Crowned European Car of the Year, this premium compact SUV seduces with the avant-garde character of its design and modernity. In terms of power, the XC40 Recharge has a new generation engine with 408 hp, allowing it to reach 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, with a promised range of up to 531 km. This all-wheel drive model, whose battery can recover 80% of a charge in just 27 minutes, promises power and flexibility on the road, for an intense driving experience.
For its part, the C40 Recharge is only offered in a 100% electric version. The new crossover coupe offers exceptional range and fast charging, making it one of the most innovative and capable electric vehicles on the market. It is in fact equipped with new generation electric motors that allow it to increase its capacity with greater autonomy (up to 550 km) and accelerated charging (27 minutes to go from 10 to 80% with fast charging).
The final two models in the 40 range are hugely popular, emphasizing all of Volvo’s technology, with a full range of safety features, technical innovations and digital services, such as the infotainment system co-developed with Google. Its contemporary and elegant design is inspired by Scandinavian aesthetics, combining functionality and simplicity.
Volvo Cars is already a leader in the fast-growing premium electric vehicle market. By 2025, the Scandinavian brand expects fully electric cars to account for 50% of its global sales and intends to market electric cars only. Starting in 2030, Volvo will become a fully electric car manufacturer. From this date, the company will remove all models equipped with an internal combustion engine, including hybrid vehicles, from its global portfolio. This transformation is part of the brand’s ambitious climate plan, which aims to continuously reduce the carbon footprint of each car’s life cycle through concrete actions.
