I was in a demo xc40 recharge while waiting for new car to arrive
The car died unexpectedly while driving
Nearly caused an accident
Has anyone else experienced this?

Perhaps it had not rec'd the Recall that was in place to remedy that issue.

I was thinking the same thing but can’t get an answer from the dealer which I guess is my answer

I made sure that my dealer was aware of this recall and they confirmed it was fixed. I told them I was very concerned about the possibility of losing power while driving. Then I confirmed there was no outstanding recall.

so no explanation yet for the stall? Do they have any thoughts as to what it could be?

Sales manager says it was an electrical system failure
It’s not unexpected I suppose but yet a bit disheartening to have a new 60k car die unexpectedly in the middle of a highway with wife and baby onboard
I hope Volvo keeps ahead of this otherwise I predict some bad outcomes/poor press in the future
