The C40 Recharge model comes with a choice of single or dual-motor powertrains and the brand's 78kWh battery (75kWh usable). Prices start from around £47,000 for the front-driven version, offered in 'Core', 'Plus' or 'Ultimate' levels of trim. The AWD model, priced from around £58,000, comes in 'Plus' or 'Ultimate' spec. Primarily, ordering will be online, though you can do that from a dealer showroom if you'd prefer to have someone guide you through the process.
Rather than buying outright, the brand expects most customers to use its 'Care by Volvo' subscription options - there two, both with no deposit and both including servicing and maintenance. There's a 'Flexible' contract, which includes a 30 day trial period at the beginning and requires three month's notice before contract end. Or you can take out a subscription-based contract with a fixed 36 month tariff. The standard subscription rate gives you 6,000 annual miles and customers can top up their limit at the rate of £15 a month for each additional 2000 mile block, up to 10,000 miles, and then add £10 extra on top for the maximum limit of 12,000 miles.
