Volvo has an important principle in mind as it releases the 2021 XC40 – the latest iteration of Volvo’s first electric car. That principle is simply this:

Being a good steward of the planet while having a fantastic time driving represents no conflict.

The XC40 proved itself right out of the gate in 2020 by winning the prestigious European Car of the Year award. And it’s no surprise. This small premium SUV is the first vehicle based on a new idea known as Concept Modular Architecture, developed within the Geely Group and providing Volvo with crucial economies of scale in the SUV segment.

And if you’re looking for a planet-friendly driving experience that lacks nothing in power, XC40 is your vehicle. It comes with Volvo’s first-ever three-cylinder engine, with power output ranging from 150-to-274 horsepower.

Another option for XC40 customers is a T5 twin-engine petro plug-in hybrid.

The 2021 XC40 will also include the same award-winning safety technologies found in Volvo’s 90 and 60 series vehicles. That includes the Volvo Pilot Assist system, along with the latest generation of City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic alert with auto brake, and a 360-degree camera that helps drivers maneuver into tight parking spots.

City Safety, which is now standard on all Volvo models, is an especially crucial feature. It includes automatic braking functionality and collision avoidance systems. These sophisticated systems anticipate and address a range of potential accident scenarios – including the detection of pedestrians, cyclists and large animals such as deer.

There is no other automotive safety system available in today’s market that covers all that.

But you’d expect that from the XC40, which is also equipped with an intuitive touch-screen interface that gives you easy access to car functions, navigation, connected services and various in-car entertainment applications. Do you enjoy Spotify? Pandora? Baidu? Tunein? The portrait-oriented touchscreen gives you quick and easy access, in addition to smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

And as you’re enjoying XC40’s performance and appreciating its earth-friendly virtues, you’ll experience in-cabin convenience with plenty of large storage compartments, plus special slots for credit and service cards.

So, who said we can’t have planet-friendly cars that perform like a dream and are a pleasure to drive? Volvo knows better, and drivers of the 2021 XC40 will affirm that with confidence and enthusiasm. Shop our inventory of the 2021 XC40 and other great models.
