How Electric Cars Work

Now that you know about the foundation of electric cars and what the Volvo Pure Electric models can do, you may be wondering how these vehicles work.

Dual-Motor Capability

In the Volvo Pure Electric models, you get dual-motor capability. The Volvo XC40 uses a pair of 2021-horsepower electric motors to provide you with an acceleration boost, greater mileage range, and a smooth ride.

This can make your ride feel just as natural as riding in a typical vehicle, or even better. You will immediately be able to feel the difference in the vehicle's ability to accelerate and the overall nature of the ride.

Regenerative Braking

One benefit of electric vehicles is the use of regenerative braking. This means that when you do hit the brakes, any forward momentum gets transferred back into the battery, helping to extend your driving range. This can give you more capability to get to the places you want to go. The more distance you can cover without needing a charge, the more productive you feel.

A Powerful Battery

Finally, the Volvo Pure Electric line offers powerful batteries that keep you going for longer. The 78kWh battery can offer over 200 miles of range, keeping you on the road for longer travels. This powerful battery can give you enough of a battery supply to complete all of your travels in a workday, allowing you to charge overnight to get your range back to where it needs to be for a new day.

Speaking of charging your electric vehicle, when you do need to charge, you have several options for getting back to a full battery and back on the road. The battery in the Volvo electric vehicles can be charged to 80 percent capacity in less than 40 minutes, and you can take advantage of an at-home charger for added convenience.

Volvo Pure Electric Models

The Volvo Pure Electric line is led by the Volvo XC40 Recharge, the first ever all-electric model from Volvo. This vehicle is providing drivers with over 200 miles of range, 402 horsepower, and fast and reliable charging so you can make your travels with peace of mind.

This is also only the beginning with the future of vehicles from Volvo. As the first of its kind, the Volvo XC40 Recharge will certainly not be the last electric vehicle coming to the roadways from Volvo.

As vehicles continue to evolve, these Volvo Pure Electric models will continue to expand on possibilities, using the new information and technology to take you further than ever before. The current Volvo Pure Electric models are using this technology now to take advancements in the way we drive.

That will only continue in the years to come, so learning more about the power of electric vehicles and where drivers are going and the options that are becoming available can go a long way.
