Did you know that you have two options for charging your Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin Motor car? You can either use a traditional wall plug or a charging station. However, if you are on-the-go, charging in public is only possible through a charging station as a wall plug is not sufficient. The speed of charging your electric vehicle depends on the type of charging station or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) as well as your car's maximum charging capacity. You can refer to the table below to see all the charging alternatives that are available for your Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin Motor car, including an estimate of the time it takes to charge the battery from empty to full.
Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can vary depending on the country. While some countries rely mainly on 1-phase grid connections, others predominantly use a 3-phase connection. To charge a Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin Motor, multiple charging modes are available, as outlined in the table below. However, please note that certain charging modes may not be available in some countries. We recommend that you verify the available options with your local electric vehicle charging networks.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)
Quick charging is vital in extending your journey by providing the maximum range possible in the shortest amount of time. As the battery nears 80% of its charge, the charging power will gradually decrease, making it uncommon for a quick charge to exceed 80% SoC. The speed at which an electric vehicle charges is reliant on the charging station employed and the maximum charging power that the EV can manage. For an in-depth overview of fast charging for the Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin Motor, view 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%
