In its steady advance towards a cleaner, simpler future, Volvo is rolling out a fresh battery-powered crossover. The plug-in C40 Recharge offers seating for four with ample rear headroom. A 75-kWh battery pack powers electric motors on each axle for a total of 402 horsepower and an estimated EPA range of 210 miles. It uses an Android-based OS to link seamlessly with apps like Google maps. The launch of the C40 is a milestone—the first Volvo for which there is no gas-powered counterpart.
