    Volvo has updated and renamed a couple of junior crossovers: meet the EX40 and EC40

    The top versions of the models, which were previously called XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge, have increased the output of the twin-engine unit to 442 hp.

    The Swedish brand Volvo is part of the Chinese holding Geely. The company has quietly carried out several updates to the junior all-electric crossovers XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge in recent years.

    Some of the main updates were new names: the compact crossover XC40 Recharge was renamed Volvo EX40, and the coupe-shaped SUV C40 Recharge will now be sold under the name EC40. The manufacturer explained that these names are more consistent with other current models of the brand’s “green” family – EX30, EX90 and EM90 (available on the Chinese market). At the same time, it was decided to leave the name XC40 for modifications of the model with an internal combustion engine.

    Volvo now continues to pursue its own “greening” plan, according to which by 2030 the brand will develop and produce only electric vehicles. The company estimates that at the end of last year, electric vehicles accounted for 16% of Volvo's total global sales. At the same time, the figure increased by 70% compared to the result of 2022. Volvo expects it to increase by the end of 2024.

    The Swedish brand has prepared changes for a couple of other models: we are talking about a modernized gasoline engine that operates as part of a mild hybrid powertrain installations in the B5 configuration of such crossovers as the XC60 and XC90. The result was a reduction in CO2 emissions and an increase in fuel efficiency by 4% for the Volvo XC60 and 2% for the XC90.

    Recall that at the beginning of this month it became known that Volvo would stop financing Polestar , so the Chinese holding Geely will have to save the “shooting star” directly.
