If you’re sold on the looks and can accept the practicality penalties of the Volvo C40, it stacks up well compared with its immediate competition, especially on performance.

The regular Volvo XC40 Recharge offers similar performance and is a better all-rounder, though, so we’d recommend going for that instead.

This smaller battery option on the Volvo C40 Recharge is coupled to a single electric motor that drives the front wheels. It produces 228bhp and is quick enough to get the C40 from 0-62mph in 7.4sec with a top speed of 99mph.
