The EC40 and EX40 are offered with a new Single Motor Extended Range powertrain. Available in addition to the established rear-wheel-drive Single Motor and all-wheel-drive Twin Motor options, this provides a greater driving range – up to 346 miles in the EC40 and 343 miles in the EX40. It has a 78kWh battery (with 75kWh usable capacity) and a 252hp electric motor on the rear axle that produces 420Nm of torque. The maximum charging speed for replenishing the battery is 140kW.

Meanwhile, an optional Performance software upgrade will be available, which increases maximum output in the EC40 and EX40 Twin Motor versions from 408hp to 442hp. Owners will also enjoy quicker acceleration response courtesy of revised pedal mapping and the addition of a new Performance mode that unlocks the increased power. This software upgrade will also be available to existing owners of previous-model-year (so-called 2024-model-year) C40 and XC40 Recharge cars. UK timing and pricing details will be announced in due course.

Volvo is also simplifying its price structure, with like-for-like on-the-road prices for the EC40 and EX40 Plus and Ultra models (the EX40 is also available in entry-level Core grade).

Visually, the EC40 is distinguished by a contrast black roof, standard across all versions. A new Sand Dune exterior colour option has also been introduced to the EC40, EX40 and XC40 models.

Another change reflecting the progress of Volvo’s electrification programme is the deletion of the Recharge name from all plug-in hybrid models. Additionally, the Ultimate trim level has been changed to Ultra, across all models.
