Volvo C40 Recharge | Wolf In Sheep's Clothing | First Drive Review

The XC40 Recharge was quite a success for Volvo, and now, to bank on that success is their second EV.

For

Ballistic Performance, practicality, best-in-class audio system

Against

I've honestly got nothing bad to say.

Interior

Is the C40 Recharge practical?

Regarding storage, it may be slightly down on boot capacity thanks to the lowered roofline and spare wheel. The EV6 and the IONIQ 5 may have more oversized boots, but they give you a puncture repair kit. A spare wheel is a much more reliable addition and adds more to practicality. Plus, you can always use the frunk, which has more storage than an EV6 or leave the spare behind and carry a puncture repair kit for city stints. The interior space may have been reduced, but it's sufficiently practical for a small family.
