What will be the price of this second electric car from Volvo?
As of now, Volvo has not launched the vehicle, but we can have an idea after the company launched the XC40 Recharge. Of course, the Coupe C40 Recharge will be priced higher than that of the vehicle on which it is based. We expect the vehicle to be priced somewhere between Rs.56- Rs60Lakhs (ex-showroom). Besides, this Volvo doesn’t have any direct rival when it comes to price, just its own sibling.
Also, the company will launch this vehicle in India, sometime in 2023, our guess, it will be in the first half.
