Volvo discontinues the popular model

This year alone, over 1,300 cars have been registered – of which 115 in the last month.

Nevertheless, Volvo chooses to discontinue the popular plug-in hybrid model Volvo XC40 Recharge, according to Carup.

Yesterday Bytbil wrote that rechargeable cars dominated October.

The Volvo XC40 was by far the best-selling electric car and the XC60 came out on top on the plug-in hybrid side.

But no more Volvo XC40 plug-in hybrids will be offered in Sweden. That’s what Carup writes.

This model has also been popular with the Swedes. In the month of October, 115 copies of the model were registered in Sweden, according to the industry organization Mobility Sweden’s statistics. In total, the car has sold 1,302 copies this year and over 6,000 copies in the last two years. This means that the XC40 Recharge has been Volvo’s third best-selling plug-in hybrid during that period, and sixth overall over plug-in hybrids in Sweden.

But now the model is being discontinued. It cannot be ordered via either the website or the dealers.

– It is true that the XC40 plug-in hybrid will no longer be offered in Sweden as the 2023 model year has sold out, confirms Magnus Holst, PR manager for Volvo Cars in Sweden, for Carup.

The reason why Volvo is scrapping the XC40 plug-in hybrid is not yet clear. Consumers who are interested in a plug-in hybrid SUV from Volvo are now referred instead to the Volvo XC60, i.e. the most popular plug-in hybrid from the manufacturer. It costs around SEK 650,000.
