3 advantages and 3 disadvantages of the electric Volvo XC40 Recharge


+ Advantage 1: You can see how much power you will have left in the future

When you enter a destination in the navigation system of the Volvo XC40 Recharge, you can see with what percentage you arrive. A reassuring idea and a function that every electric car should have.


+ Advantage 2: The adaptive cruise control of the Volvo XC40

After testing a few Chinese EVs, the Volvo XC40 Recharge’s adaptive cruise control is a breath of fresh air. Simple controls and smooth operation.


+ Advantage 3: The Volvo XC40 Recharge is a fast calculator

If you change the charging limit (Volvo recommends setting it to 90 percent), the Volvo XC40 Recharge immediately recalculates what time charging is ready.


– Disadvantage 1: Why is the charging speed not shown in kW?

The Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Polestar 2 have the annoying characteristic of expressing the charging speed in km / h and not in the usual kW.


– Disadvantage 2: Switching on one pedal driving is too difficult

Enable or disable one pedal driving (you don’t have to brake, the Volvo does that for you) takes three steps. That’s two too many, as far as we’re concerned.


– Disadvantage 3: We want to see the range in kilometers!

The range of the Volvo XC40 Recharge is only expressed as a percentage. Only when the battery is almost empty, kilometers are added. That’s not handy.
