The full-electric XC40 BEV compact SUV recently unveiled
Al-Futtaim’s Trading Enterprises, the official distributor of Volvo Cars in the UAE, has unveiled its first fully electric car to the Middle East, the XC40 BEV, a compact SUV designed for modern urban living.
The launch comes as another milestone in Volvo’s journey to a zero-emission future and as part of its overarching commitment to sustainability by only selling electric vehicles by 2030.
Increasing the use of sustainable materials is just one way the XC40 Recharge helps reduce its environmental impact. For example, the interior carpeting is made entirely from recycled plastic. Over 200,000km, an XC40 Recharge twin has a lower carbon impact than a petrol-powered XC40 T5, irrespective of the charging electricity mix (global, EU or wind).
The battery has a nominal capacity of 78 kwh. A fully charged battery gives drivers a projected range of up to 418km in mixed driving before it needs a recharge.
“We will continue to support and promote Volvo’s electrification strategy and its overarching commitment to sustainability by selling only electric vehicles by 2030,” observed Oscar Rivoli, Managing Director, Trading Enterprises. A subsidiary of the Al-Futtaim Automotive Group, Trading Enterprises, was established in 1970s in Dubai and is the exclusive authorized distributor for Volvo in the UAE.
