Volvo Cars introducing upgrades to fully electric and hybrid cars

Volvo Cars is introducing a new Performance software pack for the EX40 (formerly named the XC40 Recharge) and EC40 (formerly named the C40 Recharge) Twin Motor variants, and as an upgrade for the previous model year in selected markets.

The Performance software pack, which increases power output by 25kW for faster acceleration, also includes pedal mapping for quicker accelerator response and a ‘Performance’ drive mode to unlock the full 325kW.

In available markets, the Performance software will be offered as an optional upgrade pack via the Volvo Cars app when ordering a new car, while drivers of previous model year 2024 C40 and fully electric XC40 Recharge cars can purchase and download the software.

Volvo is also investing in improvements to ourits hybrid products. B5 mild hybrid gasoline variants of XC60 and XC90 now employ a more efficient engine combustion cycle, expected to result in CO2 emission reductions and fuel economy improvements of up to around 4% for the XC60 and around 2% for the XC90 based on the WLTP cycle.
