Volvo Recharge

Volvo Recharge is responsible luxury for people who care. Presenting the most advanced chargeable electric cars, where every effort has been made to create the most sustainable product possible – from sourcing and manufacturing, to materials and unique features.

The cars that have always protected you, your loved ones and the people around you, now also protect your future. Every new Volvo car launched, will be electrified.

Volvo Cars is committed to becoming a leader in the fast-growing premium electric car market and plans to become a fully electric car company by 2030.

By then, the company intends to only sell fully electric cars and phase out any car in its global portfolio with an internal combustion engine, including hybrids.

Volvo Electrified Powertrains

Mild Hybrids

Our mild hybrids bring smoothness and electric power to your drive. A 48V battery and an integrated starter generator support the combustion engine for reduced tailpipe emissions. 

No need for charging: every time you brake, the battery is fed with recovered braking energy.

Plug-In Hybrids

Less petrol, more purpose.

​In our Recharge plug-in hybrids, an electric motor and combustion engine team together for a choice of pure electric mode, power mode and hybrid mode, giving you total driving control and lower tailpipe emissions. 

The best of both worlds.

Pure Electric

Sometimes quiet is the most powerful way to go, with zero tailpipe emissions and less noise at all speeds. Our pure electric range is pure progress for the road ahead.

Zero-emissions driving all day, every day. Simply charge up and go.
