Volvo XC40 P6 Recharge sells out in SA within 24 hours.

The new Volvo XC40 P6 Recharge, Volvo Car South Africa’s second all-electric model, has gone on sale in South Africa. Within 24 hours, the entire first allocation was sold out.

The order books for the XC40 P6 Recharge officially opened early on Tuesday, July 26th, and all 25 units were gone by the next morning. The much anticipated single-motor version of the electric XC40 was offered exclusively online through Volvo’s website for a starting price of R1 075 000.

Greg Maruszewski, Managing Director of Volvo Car South Africa, says the XC40 P6 Recharge’s amazing customer response is due in major part to its competitive pricing.

“We were determined to bring in the XC40 P6 Recharge at an attractive price, positioning it as the most affordable all-electric luxury vehicle currently on the market,” he said.

“This has clearly resonated with a number of South Africans looking to switch to battery-powered vehicles, leading to the P6 selling out quicker than the XC40 P8 Recharge AWD.”

Quick-thinking buyers who spotted the XC40 P6 Recharge’s compelling value proposition and snatched up the first units will benefit from strong peak outputs (170 kW and 330 Nm), a competitive single-charge range (up to 423 km*), a generous array of standard equipment, and Volvo’s signature suite of world-class safety features. Deliveries will begin later this year.

*Range is based on WLTP driving cycles; actual range may vary. The figures are based on an initial aim. Vehicle certification is still pending.
