Volvo Car Malaysia Unveils Enhanced 2024 C40 Recharge Pure Electric

Volvo Car Malaysia has introduced the updated model year 2024 version of the C40 Recharge Pure Electric, marking Volvo’s commitment to electrification and sustainability. This crossover SUV, Volvo’s first electric-only model, now offers impressive enhancements, including an extended electric range of up to 550km, faster DC charging capabilities for its larger 82kWh battery pack, and advanced pixel headlight technology.

In Malaysia, Volvo Car Malaysia presents the top-of-the-line variant featuring a twin motor, all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration. This variant showcases a more powerful second-generation permanent magnet rear electric motor, developed in-house by Volvo. With an output of 245hp at the rear axle and a new 156hp asynchronous electric motor at the front axle, the new configuration emphasises rear power delivery, enhancing the driving experience with a maximum power output of 402hp.

Moreover, the upgraded 82kWh battery pack, an improvement from the previous 78kWh capacity, now supports a higher maximum input of 200kW for DC charging. This enhancement enables a remarkable 10 to 80 per cent charge in just 27 minutes, significantly reducing charging times. Coupled with the efficiency improvements in battery cooling and the new twin-motor configuration, the updated Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric boasts a substantially improved range, offering 100km more than its predecessor.

These improvements make the fully electric models even more attractive than they already were and are a big step towards becoming a fully electric car maker by 2030.

Designed from the ground up to be fully electric, the Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric features a distinctive design and cutting-edge safety technology, making it a standout in the compact SUV segment. The 2024 model year upgrades further solidify Volvo’s position as a leader in the e-luxury segment.

Additional enhancements include new pixel headlights with sensor-controlled forward lighting, new 19-inch alloy wheels for improved aerodynamics, and a new exterior colour option, Vapour Grey, joining the existing range of colourways.

Customers can enjoy 5-year complimentary Digital Services, providing access to Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Play Store, and remote functions through the Volvo Cars app. Despite these significant upgrades, the updated Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric maintains a similar price point to its predecessor at RM288,888, offering flexible financing options and lower interest rates through Volvo Car Financial Services.

To make ownership more accessible, Volvo Car Malaysia is offering an instant rebate of RM10,000 for online orders of the Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric placed before 31 March 2024.
