Local reviews on New Zealand roads

DriveLife
2023 Volvo C40 Recharge Plus | Electric Car Review

"The design is iconically Volvo, and the interior is as comfy as the Swedish future gets. There is a great level of tech and market-leading safety features. The 78Kwh battery provides a super-practical 451km range. If you're looking for a mid-sized EV for a couple of small families, the C40 Recharge is something you need to try, especially if you want to stand out from the crowds of Teslas on the road these days."

EVolvolution – Volvo C40 Recharge review NZ

"The Volvo C40 Recharge is a great crossover and a giant step forward as the brand evolvoes, oops evolves to being EV only. Plenty of range and plenty of tech, just personally, I would go for a little more Ultimate power."
