LOS ANGELES: Swedish luxury car-maker Volvo has introduced its first-ever fully electric car, the XC40 Recharge that comes with a brand new infotainment system powered by Google’s Android operating system.
The company did not reveal the price of the vehicle while unveiling it at an event in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
The XC40 Recharge offers a range of over 400 km (WLTP) on a single charge and output of 408hp, Volvo Cars said.
The battery charges to 80 percent of its capacity in 40 minutes on a fast-charger system.
The Android-powered infotainment system is fully integrated with Volvo On Call, the company’s digital connected services platform. Via Volvo On Call plug-in, hybrid drivers can track how much time they spend driving on electric power.
