Volvo's all-electric lineup currently consists of two models - the 2024 model year versions of the C40 Recharge and XC40 Recharge, which are noticeably more attractive in terms of specs than the 2023 model year versions (see more details here).

The imported Volvo models are not eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit, but the incentive might be included in the lease rates.

In the future, Volvo's BEV lineup will be expanded by the all-new Volvo EX90 model and the Volvo EX30, which will start at an MSRP of $36,245. Most recently, the company announced also an all-electric MPV - the Volvo EM90. The next-generation models are crucial for Volvo's plan to become 100% all-electric by 2030.
