The Volvo C40 is an all-electric compact SUV that was introduced in 2021. It is based on Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform and shares many design elements with the XC40, offering a sleek and stylish crossover appearance. The C40 is a fully electric vehicle, with a focus on sustainability and eco-friendliness. While relatively new, there are some common issues associated with this electric vehicle.
Google Assistant Issues: Some owners have complained about their Google Assistant voice recognition system, noting that it mishears what you are saying and selects a different option than what you are needing.
Charging Problems: Complaints that the C40 charges extremely slow and that the charging status fails to display on the screen. These can generally be resolved by rebooting the EVSE charger and/or replugging in the charger.
Apple CarPlay System Issues: Sometimes it fails to boot or disconnects for no reason. Restart the car and reconnect the system to resolve any Apple CarPlay Issues.
Rear Door Panel Problems: Several owners of the 2022 Volvo C40 have reported that when the rear door opens on the right passenger side, a small triangle panel catches on/rubs against something and begins to come off over time. A parts update will fix this.
