Volvo’s first EV is based on its popular XC40 SUV. It features a 407PS twin motor powertrain with a 78kWh battery, giving a range of 248 miles.

The flagship P8 version is expected to cost around £50,000, but it’s possible that lower output models will be made available at a later date.

Styling changes are minimal, with the covered front grille the most obvious difference.

Charging is available through an 11kW AC charger or a 150kW DC fast-charger, which should deliver an 80% charge in 40 minutes.

The launch of the car coincides with Volvo’s new sales strategy, which will help customers identify which powertrain best suits their requirements.
