2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Gets 7% More EPA Range

–>

The EPA Combined range is 223 miles (359 km) - 15 miles (24 km) or 7.2% more than before. We don't know for sure, but it seems that the smaller 19" wheels as standard, compared to 20" wheels previously and possibly some other improvements boosted the result. The EPA test is the same - 2-cycle.

This new version is already available for reservations, but its MSRP price is now slightly higher - $55,300 MSRP, compared to $53,990 previously.

2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge

Unfortunately, just like in the case of the 2022 Polestar 2, the EPA's data does not include the City and Highway range ratings.

The EPA Combined range is 223 miles (359 km) and we can only guess that on the highway, it will be closer to 200 miles (322 km).
