Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Are you aware that there are two ways to charge your Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor? You can either use a regular wall socket or a charging station. However, while on the go, public charging can only be carried out through a charging station, as a wall socket won't suffice. The speed at which your EV charges is determined by the type of charging station or EVSE you employ, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Refer to the table below for a list of available charging options for your Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor, along with an approximate amount of time it takes to charge the battery from empty to full.


The process of charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ from country to country. Some European countries predominantly use 1-phase connections to the grid, while others heavily rely on 3-phase connections. Here is a table outlining all the potential ways to charge a Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor. Not all charging modes may be available in certain countries, therefore, it is recommended that you check with local electric vehicle charging networks to find out which options are available to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging is essential for increasing the distance of your trip by providing an optimal amount of range in the shortest amount of time. However, when your battery reaches an 80% state-of-charge, the charging speed will significantly decrease. Therefore, a typical fast charge rarely exceeds an 80% SoC. The speed at which your electric vehicle can charge depends on both the charging station used and the EV's maximum charging power. The table below provides a detailed overview of how to rapidly charge the Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
