Volvo will bring the C40 Recharge by the end of 2023 to India. The upcoming Volvo C40 Recharge is already available in other countries.

It will get assembled at the firm's production site in Bengaluru. The launch of the C40 Recharge, according to the reports, will increase the automaker's market share in the EV sector. Further, the company has shared its plans to go completely electric by 2030. In terms of design, the Volvo C40 Recharge's front will be similar to the XC40 Recharge. It will have sharp headlamps with an LED DRL pattern. Moreover, the ORVMs will be installed on the doors, and the SUV will ride on big 5-spoke alloy wheels. The upcoming model will have a coupe-like roofline, offering a sporty appearance.
