    Hi, I'm thinking about some upgrades to get to charging at acceptable speed and I'm interested in any opinions. I'm in Canada, so the electric system is the same as the USA. At the moment, I'm charging from a regular 110v wall plug in my garage. It's a 15 amp switch and has some other stuff on...

    Hi all, I'm a new Recharge owner and plugged my Volvo branded charger in for the first time last night. Prior to starting charging, I had made sure that the car was set to limit charging to 90%. But when I came back out in the morning, the car was at 100% charge. Is there a trick to getting...

    Since this is my first post, a quick intro. Swiss XC40 recharge ultimate in red. Got it a couple of weeks ago and have zero issues with it. It's a joy to ride. We were thinking of making a roadtrip in fall to the nouvelle aquitaine / Loire region, looking at some historic trails. Instead of...

    Hi there, Has anyone ever had issues with the internal charger? I can charge the car on any DC fast charger with no issues but whenever I try to use AC charging, it fails. It begins to build up on the amp (1/32, 2/32) then the wallbox relay clanks and the charging pauses, it attempts again for...

    I use a standard outlet to trickle charge my XC40 recharge, but I haven't been able to charge using this method for a week or two now. Fast charging at a public station works. The Volvo cord I use at home is showing a solid white light, which I gather means it is ready to charge, but the car...

    I am a new owner of an XC40 Recharge. The car tells me it recommends only charging it 80-90% of capacity. I'm taking a big trip and want it to be 100% as I start. Does anyone ever or consistently charge their car 100%? Is it more important NOT to do it to 100% on HOT days? This is a heat...

    Have had my recharge for about 3 weeks now and haven’t tried charging anywhere other then my home. I am considering taking it on our little family trip in a month. When i checked out the location, I saw there were Tesla super charging stations near by. Can I charge my XC40 P8 Recharge at those...
