Volvo C40

The Volvo C40 is a small SUV with a couple of twists. On one hand, it stays on trend by being styled like a coupe. And on the other, it's an electric vehicle (EV).

Closely related to the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric, the C40 is available in Single Motor and Dual Motor forms, with both delivering more than 400km of driving range, while the latter is quicker than a hot hatch

The line-up currently starts at $78,990 for the C40 Recharge Pure Electric and ranges through to $87,990 for the range-topping C40 Recharge Twin Pure Electric.
