Following the XC40 Recharge in 2021, the next Volvo EV in India will be the C40 Recharge in 2022. Following the XC40 Recharge, Volvo will bring the C40 Recharge to India in 2022. Unveiled very recently, think of the C40 Recharge to be a SUV-coupe version of the all-electric SUV, Volvo promises one new EV will follow every year. Volvo is also setting up a dedicated micro-site on their India website for the upcoming all-electric vehicles, in order to attract potential buyers. The carmaker has already stated that they will shift all sales online internationally, though dealerships will continue to be involved heavily in the process. As for other launches lined up from Volvo this year, the carmaker has confirmed that both the XC60 and the S90 will be launched with petrol engine options this year. Both the models will be launched with a 2.0L turbo-petrol engine, although the exact state of tune is yet to revealed. This move comes in a bid to phase out diesel engines from the carmaker's lineup in India. Currently, Volvo has three diesel vehicles in their India portfolio - the S90 sedan, the XC60 mid-size SUV and the XC90 full-size SUV.
