New Volvo C40 Recharge for Sale in Bend OR

Catch a Glimpse of the New Volvo C40 Recharge in Bend, OR

Thinking about making the leap to an all-electric vehicle this year? If so, then the new Volvo C40 Recharge might be of interest. Buyers in the Portland, OR area like this EV since it is easier to maneuver than a lot of big SUVs but still has plenty of interior space. Of course, there is the added bonus of over 400 horsepower from the electric powertrain and a Google-powered infotainment setup.

Before you come to our dealership to test one out for yourself, read through this to get a better feel for what the new C40 Recharge has to offer.

An Electrified Powertrain

Driving the Central area isn't all that fun when you have to spend a lot of money on fuel. The new Volvo C40 Recharge helps with that. Its 78-kilowatt battery, found beneath the floor, has its power sent to an electric motor placed on both the front and rear wheels. This essentially makes the C40 Recharge a full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD) EV. Altogether, the powertrain produces a power output of 402 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque.

The C40 Recharge has an electric range of 226 miles, consuming 39 kilowatts of electricity for every 100 miles of driving the vehicle does. Real-world tests place the actual electric range at 35.1 kilowatts used for every 100 miles of driving with a maximum range of 252 miles on a full charge.

Eco-Friendly Inside and Out

If you want to be more eco-friendly, the Central Oregon area benefits from Volvo's design for the C40 Recharge. Instead of offering any type of leather upholstery, Volvo goes the more sustainable route by including faux-nubuck textiles mixed with microfiber-type inserts for the seating upholstery. What's more, a heat pump can heat the cabin much more efficiently than your average vehicle heater.

Why Volvo is a Preferred Brand in the Portland, OR Area

Volvo is a preferred brand for drivers in the Portland, OR area since they focus on sustainability. But their focus is not at the expense of their strong sense of European luxury. Volvo offers many well-tuned features as standard on their vehicles, and the C40 Recharge is no exception to that rule.

As part of Volvo's efforts to encourage sustainable driving in America, they are giving each EV buyer a complimentary 250-kilowatts of DC fast-charging credit via the Electrify America program. This means drivers end up paying even less to help kickstart their EV ownership experience.

Also, Volvo gives its buyers basic powertrain warranties that run for four years/50,000 miles. The electric battery is covered for eight years/100,000 miles. On top of that, Volvo foots the bill for all scheduled services at every 10,000 miles for up to three years/36,000 miles of ownership. Roadside assistance is free for the first four years and with no limit on mileage.

The Benefits of Owning an EV

Owning an EV can save you a lot of money on fuel. They are also the most environmentally friendly vehicle on the market, so the carbon footprint you leave will be much smaller. They do not emit the pollutants that gas-powered vehicles do, and they can help reduce air quality problems that plague larger cities.

Volvo and other automakers who manufacture EVs offer rebates and incentives to buy these vehicles, which saves you money on getting a new vehicle. EV ownership and operation costs are about 50 percent less than those of gas-powered vehicles, and you get a slew of options for utility rates to charge your EV.
