Are you aware that you can charge your Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor ER in two ways - by using a standard wall plug or a charging station? However, it is important to note that while on-the-go, you can only charge your vehicle via a charging station and not through a wall plug. The charging speed of your electric vehicle will depend on the type of charging station or EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) you use, as well as the maximum charging capacity of your EV.
Refer to the table below for a comprehensive list of available charging options for your Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor ER, including the estimated time required to charge the battery from empty to full.
Charging an electric vehicle (EV) across Europe can differ depending on the country. Some European countries heavily rely on 1-phase connections to the grid, while others mainly use a 3-phase connection. Below is a table showing every possible way to charge a Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor ER. However, it's essential to note that not all charging modes may be available in all countries. Therefore, we recommend that you consult with your local electric vehicle charging networks to confirm which charging options are available to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Fast charging plays a critical role in extending the range of your journey by quickly adding an optimal amount of range. However, once an electric vehicle reaches an 80% state-of-charge, the charging power will noticeably decrease. Therefore, conventional rapid charging usually doesn't exceed an 80% SoC. The charging speed of an electric vehicle depends on the charging station being used and the maximum charging power that the EV can handle. To quickly charge your Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor ER, we have provided a comprehensive overview in the table below.
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%
