Volvo XC40 Recharge
Thanks to ongoing tweaks, the Volvo XC40 is standing up well to the ravages of time.
There's a lot to like about the all-electric XC40, not least the shockingly fast (pun intended) performance of the dual-motor model. In fact, with a sub-five-second 0-100km/h dash, it feels at times more like a BMW M car than a traditional Volvo. The cabin is typically Volvo - very well made and with superb comfort - and the Google Android-based infotainment system is clever, if a touch fiddly at first. The more affordable single-motor version is the best bet and, like the C40, the switch to rear-wheel drive and an upgraded optional 78kWh battery means a significant improvement in range.
