Volvo presented its new XC40 Pure Electric for the Colombian market.
This is the company’s first electric vehicle, which is inspired by the SUV version of the same model, La Republica reported.
“Much more than a vehicle, the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric carries the entire legacy of technology, safety and sustainability that Volvo has built over the years. And even better to be able to make this launch simultaneously throughout Latin America,” Luis Rezende, Head of the Latin America Hub for Volvo Cars, said.
This plug-in car can be charged at a standard outlet or through a wall-box and offers a range of more than 400km depending on driving conditions.
The engines generates 408hp of power and allows acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.9 seconds.
One of its innovative points is the One Pedal Drive, a function that can be activated so that braking and acceleration can be managed with a single pedal.
“The arrival of the electric model takes us to a new level in all of Latin America. This vehicle brings the best in luxury, elegance, sophistication, safety and, above all, technology,” Tarcísio Triviño, managing director Importer Markets of Volvo Cars for Latam Hub, added.
The vehicle will be available from CoP$270M.
