Volvo Cars upgrades electric cars and harmonizes model names

Volvo Cars is streamlining and standardizing the model names of its electric cars, in line with the ongoing transformation towards becoming an all-electric car manufacturer by 2030.

The full-electric models XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge change their names to EX40 and EC40, respectively, and thus fit in perfectly with the company's other all-electric models: EX30, EX90 and EM90. The XC40 name remains for combustion-powered variants of the model.

New supplier of public charging

Volvo changes charging partner from Plugsurfing to Digital Charging Solutions (DCS).

Volvo's collaboration with the current charging network provider, Plugsurfing, will end on November 30. Drivers who drive Volvo's electric cars will instead be able to charge the cars with our service, Volvo public charging service (VPCS), which is being launched together with Volvo's new partner, DCS. The new service offers features such as remote start and stop via the Volvo Cars app, monthly payments by credit card or PayPal, accounts for company drivers, subscription offers and a free recharge card.

How will it affect you?
The receipts from Plugsurfing that you want to keep must be downloaded before the launch. Your receipts are available in the Volvo Cars app until the day before launch. After the launch, you can open the Volvo Cars app and register a VPCS account to access the new charging network.

Your old Plugsurfing card, which was supplied by Volvo, will no longer work. If you want to continue charging with Plugsurfing, download the Plugsurfing app to your phone and create a new account. You will also need a new Plugsurfing card.

Available markets
VPCS is available in most European countries, with a few exceptions. At the time of launch, it will not be possible to register a VPCS account in Bulgaria, Croatia, Iceland and Romania. However, the aim is to offer these services in all countries.

Support and questions
If you have questions about VPCS, contact Volvo Support. 

For questions regarding Plugsurfing after the launch of VPCS, contact Plugsurfing.

Applicable models
Volvo C40, model year 2022 and later

Now it's getting easier to keep your company car clean

From June 1, camera reading at car washes will be rolled out successively in the country at Tanka stations.

At the washes that, according to your company's regulations, you have the opportunity to wash at, a camera will read your registration number and the correct wash for your company car will be started.

At each facility, you will see when the camera reading is implemented. As it is being rolled out successively, you will still have to use your company car card for a while at certain washes.

If you want to wash your private car at stations that have implemented camera reading, you need to download and use a new app called Wash. NOTE: This app should not be used when you wash your company car.


How do I know which washes apply?
You can read more about which cars you wash as a company car you have the opportunity to wash in your company's company car regulations. At car washes where camera reading is implemented, it will not be possible to use your preferential car card.

How does camera reading work for the company car drivers?
1. Drive up to the barrier or exposed stop sign.
2. The camera reads your license plate and opens the gate/bar.
3. You drive into the car wash and your washing program starts.

How does camera reading work for private cars?
1. Download and install the Wash app
2. Link the registration number and payment card to the app.
3. Drive up to the barrier or exposed stop sign.
4. The camera reads your license plate and opens the gate/bar.
5. You drive into the washing machine and your washing program is started.





The digital meeting booking is taking a vacation

During weeks 29-32, the digital meeting booking with the company car consulting has closed due to vacation.





Good to know about benefit value

Please note that the cost and benefit value you see when placing your car order is always preliminary and may differ from the final calculation made when the car is delivered. It is affected by the year the car is manufactured, new model code and new price apply for each year of manufacture. At each turn of the year, the benefit value is also adjusted as it is recalculated with a new price base amount and government loan interest for the current tax year. This recalculation is also done for all the company cars that are already in traffic.

Sorry for the mess we are rebuildning

We would like to apologize that it may seem messy at Volvo Car Sörred right now.
But we have good news - the reason is that we are rebuilding to make room for parts of Volvo Cars' visitor operations that are moving in with us. It includes factory tours with Blå Tåget, Factory delivery and guided tours at the Brand Experience center.

There will be new reception desks, check-in for visitors, a pleasant social area and a lounge. The lifestyle store is moved to the right of the reception.
The delivery hall will also be rebuilt so that the entire hall will in future be able to deliver up to 8 cars at the same time.


Blå Tåget - The tour of the factory in Torslanda covers the entire Volvo Cars production process, from sheet metal rolls to finished cars. You get to see how humans and robots work together to build our cars. To ride Blå Tåget, the visitor is picked up by bus at Volvo Car Sörred and driven to the Brand Experience Center, where Blå Tåget starts on December 1.

Factory delivery - A customer offer where foreign customers, today mainly from the USA, get their car delivered in Gothenburg. This offer has been around for more than 60 years and was originally started for Swedes who lived in the USA but wanted a car during their visit to Sweden. It happens that the customer orders a car via a dealer in the USA and then gets the car delivered in Gothenburg. The offer includes everything to make it a premium experience for the customer. Among other things, travel, pickup by VIP Taxi, hotel, factory tour with Blå Tåget, a traditional Swedish lunch and a premium delivery experience are included. The customer then uses the car within Europe and then has it shipped to the US. High season is during the summer when there will be many customers on site.

Brand Experience center - Here you can experience what makes a Volvo a Volvo. A guided tour with exhibitions where the focus is on design, safety, the environment and connected cars. To visit the Brand Experience center, the visitor will be picked up by bus at Volvo Car Sörred from December 1.
