Volvo XC40 Recharge: UK pricing revealed

UK-market pricing details for Volvo's first all-electric car, the XC40 P8 Recharge, have been revealed ahead of its arrival in the island kingdom later this year. The XC40 P8 Recharge will be priced from £53,155, or roughly AU$106,590, meaning it will not qualify for the UK government's £3000 Plug-in Car Grant after a new policy was implemented this year exempting cars with a list price over £50,000 from receiving the incentive.
