Volvo has updated the prices of a few models with immediate effect in India, following the footsteps of its rivals such as Kia, Mahindra, and more. The cost of the Volvo S90, the XC90, and the XC60 has increased by Rs 35,000. It's fundamental to keep in mind that the prices of the brand's other offerings, such as the C40 Recharge, the XC40, and the XC40 Recharge, have not seen any price hike. At a launch price of Rs 61.25 lakh (ex-showroom), Volvo just introduced the C40 Recharge electric SUV in the Indian market. A 78kWh battery that provides a WLTP-enhanced range of roughly 530 kilometre is housed in the brand-new C40 Recharge. The model produces 402bhp and 660Nm with the dual electric motor all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. If you are considering purchasing one of the recently price-hiked models or the new C40 Recharge (which has not been subject to a price increase), take a moment to read this.
