Charging Volvo Electric Cars

Charging Volvo EVs

Volvo EVs need to be charged appropriately in order to get the most out of the battery life and out of every full charge you have. But charging them appropriately will depend upon the charging station, charging cable, and the battery.

Charging A Volvo EV

When you are charging your Volvo, it’ll depend on what kind of Volvo you have when it comes to overall battery capacity. There are currently two commercially available Volvo EVs that are fully electrically powered:

● The Volvo C40 - 75 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo XC40 - 67 kWh usable battery
● All-electric Niro EV- 64.8 kWh usable battery

There are also a range of Volvo PHEVs available, including:

●The Volvo S60 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo S90 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid (2016) - 10.1 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo V90 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo XC40 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 9.6 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo XC60 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery
● The Volvo XC90 Plug-In Hybrid (2021) - 10.4 kWh usable battery

EV Cables Volvo

When charging your Volvo EV, it is crucial that you have high-quality cables that’ll be able to facilitate the seamless and efficient charging of your car. At Smartly, we offer a wide range of cables suitable for use by Volvo EVs.

All our cables are manufactured from premium-grade materials and are made locally here in the UK. Take a look at some of the cables we have to offer:

Smartly Type 2 to Type 2 cables

EV Chargers Volvo

At Smartly, we are also proud to introduce our range of chargers suitable for use with Volvo EVs, such as:

We offer a range of charger solutions for home installation, including:

Easee One 7.4kW Single Phase Charger
Myenergi Zappi WiFi Edition Single Phase Charger
Wallbox Pulsar Max 7.4kW Single Phase Charger

Single-phase chargers are recommended for home charging. Three-phase chargers are often better suited for commercial or industrial premises as they need a three-phase electric supply. If these don’t quite fit what you’re looking for, we have plenty more  electric chargers to choose from. We aim to have a charger that will suit everyone’s needs for their home EV charging setup. 

Why Choose Smartly?

At Smartly, we believe in making electric cars and their accessories not only accessible but easy to understand. Our sole focus is to educate alongside offering our products. We accomplish this by explaining the jargon and ensuring our customers understand what they need as well as how to use it effectively.

In terms of our products themselves, all our cables are made in the UK, and all of our other products are sourced from reputable, high-end manufacturers within Europe. We only stock quality products.

We also practise what we preach by being a carbon-neutral company that works with One Tree Planted, as well as planting a minimum of 30 trees a month to offset our own carbon emission contributions, and a further tree planted for every order received.

When using a dedicated home charging port, or a public service charging port, the following Volvo XC40 can achieve:

● A full charge in 26 hours using a 3kW charger
● A full charge in 11 hours using a 7kW charger
● 80% charge in 75 minutes using a rapid 50kW charger
● 80% charge in 25 minutes using a rapid 150 kW charger

The Volvo C40 can achieve:

● A full charge in 38.5 hours using a 2.3 kW charger
● A full charge in 12 hours using a 7.4kW charger
●A full charge in 8.25 hours using a 22kW charger (usually limited to 11kW by the vehicle, also requires a three-phase supply)
● A full charge in 33 minutes using a rapid charger with up to 150kW

As for PHEVs, the S60, S90, V60 (2021), V60 (2016), V90, XC40, XC60 and XC90 can achieve:
● A full charge in 5 hours using a three-pin charger
● A full charge in 3 hours using a 3.6kW charger
● A full charge in 3 hours using a 7.4kW charger
● A full charge in 3 hours using a 22kW charger

Note that PHEVs are not suitable for rapid charging.
For most homes, it will cost around £740 - £900. This is to install everything you’ll need for your Volvo EV.
Your Volvo car can be plugged into a regular outlet with the right adapter; however, it will charge incredibly slowly. A 7kW charger is recommended for home charging.
This will depend on your energy tariff, but to achieve 80% charge for a Volvo XC40, it usually costs around £6.00 – that is around 2.9 pence a mile if you use home charging. For a Volvo C40, the average is around £7.80. Charging a hybrid will cost less money as they run on significantly smaller batteries. For example, the average cost to charge a Volvo V60 (2021) is £2.92.
Yes. Your Volvo car is safe to be charging in any normal weather that the UK experiences, including rain. It is worth noting, however, that colder weather will require slightly longer charging times due to the battery needing to be kept warm during the charging process.
