Volvo XC40 a Bargain Also with Plug-in Hybrid Mechanics And in an Electric Version with 408 HP
The Volvo XC40 has long been one of the cheapest and most interesting premium compact SUVs, as the Volvo XC40 Premium Edition for € 25,000 129 hp gasoline is around 10,000 euros cheaper than its German rivals (Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA). However, the Swedish firm also has succulent offers for the versions with the ZERO label: they are the XC40 Recharge T4 (PHEV) for € 38,990 and the XC40 Recharge (BEV) for € 51,523, amounts that can still be reduced considerably including aid from the MOVES III Plan.
The electric version for less than € 45,000 has 408 hp
Without a doubt, it is the electric XC40 that gets the most attractive offer. As we have already told you, we are talking about a premium C-SUV for materials, adjustments, execution … of 4.43 meters in length that has a space that does not shine because of abundance, nor because of scarce, being the trunk of just over 400 liters capacity the weakest section of it.
Returning to the mechanical section, say that it has two electric motors that generate a total power of 408 HP together with a torque of 660 Nm, figures that allow it to sign a 0 to 100 km / h in just 4.9 seconds despite of flirting with a weight of the order of 2.2 tons. Regarding autonomy, it is capable of traveling 418 km on a single charge according to the WLTP cycle thanks to its battery that reaches a useful capacity of 75 kWh (78 kWh gross).
Thus, the Volvo XC40 Recharge Electric Puro Premium Edition is priced at € 51,523, which is conditional on a minimum financing of € 27,000 over 48 months with 36 permanence and including the dealer’s contribution. However, this amount allows you to benefit from the MOVES III Plan, as it does not exceed € 45,000 without taxes, which means that if you deliver a car more than seven years old you can take this Volvo with 408 hp for € 44,523.
Thus, we are facing a very attractive offer, since future alternatives, such as the new Hyundai IONIQ 5 in its top-of-the-range version with 306 hp and 72.66 gross kWh, there is talk of a price in the vicinity of € 60,000 without helps.
The other mechanic that we referred to at the beginning is the Recharge T4, a plug-in hybrid mechanic with a combined power of 211 CV and 405 Nm associated with a seven-speed automatic transmission and that highlights the potential savings in the city more than by achieving a Stratospheric performance, which is not negligible either with a 0-100 km / h in 8.5 seconds thanks to the action of its 1.5-liter 129 hp turbo petrol and an 85 hp electric motor.
Xc40 Plug In Hybrid Inscription Interior Detail
Also, this XC40 Recharge T4 Premium Edition for € 38,990, based on the Inscription Expression equipment level, has a good standard equipment, in which it is possible to find elements such as LED headlights, speed limiter, navigator, sensor rain or various aids and assistants to driving, such as the automatic braking system with detection of pedestrians and cyclists.
However, this amount is conditional on a minimum financing of € 21,000 for 48 months with 36 months of permanence, and it is again thanks to MOVES III that an attractive price of € 33,990 can be reached if we scrap a used car. In addition, with equal state discounts, the Swede is positioned about ten thousand euros below its main German alternatives, such as the Audi Q3 TFSIe from € 48,390, the BMW X1 xDrive25e from € 47,800 or the Mercedes GLA 250e from € 50,425 .
The XC40 arrives with the intention of rivaling the Audi Q3, Mercedes GLA and BMW X1 by betting on a differentiated aesthetic and a lot of technology. Both the quality of performance and the available equipment are at an excellent level. It is also the model in charge of releasing the new three-cylinder engines, also with MHEV micro-hybrid versions.
