Located in Dallas, TX, supposedly the first few batches of shipments are arriving between end of Mar - 1st week of April. From my conversations with multiple Dealerships leading to the purchase of one, it's clear that the Car is too new for any Salesmen or Technician to answer questions of Buyers in a confident manner. The reality is, the first batch of P8 owners are almost like "Beta Testers" especially when it's Volvo's 1st EV where actual owners would probably learn/know more by sharing experiences than totally relying on the words of a Dealership. Hence, going into this decision, I'm mentally prepared for the "new" Car to trigger error lights/messages etc that no one can immediately attend to (but then again, it may be smooth sailing). Regardless, with a legacy Company like Volvo, I was willing to take the plunge !

In short, I hope this Forum continues to be alive for the benefit of owners to share tips. insights and experiences !

Welcome to the Forum, MMK! The Recharge thread is heavily active and we are all excited about the car and its arrival for most of us shortly.

I agree, most are okay "beta testing" but would expect some sort of compensation or perk given by Volvo. We have been crowdsourcing answers to questions that dealers or corporate can't get straight. We hope it will get better as we move forward.

Over 2500 miles on mine and it's great so far, no issues!

Brand new to the forum, have never owned a Volvo before and this is my first electric vehicle. I am in Minnesota. Ordered the car 2/1/21 and it just arrived in Baltimore this past Wednesday. Had the ChargePoint charger hardwired into the garage. Looking very forward to receiving the car in the next couple weeks.
