Electrek's Take

That's what I'm talking about. There's a lot to like here.

First of all, it's a beautiful vehicle.

The specs are so on point.

At a little worried about the efficiency though.

At 78 kWh and a usable capacity of 75 kWh, which is over 200 miles EPA and more than 400 km WLTP. 19659002] Either way, I think they are just over 200 miles based on the EPA.

Again, I am excited for the electric XC40, but its success is going to be

I'd love to get it close to $ 50,000 USD, but I would not be surprised if it's closer to $ 60,000.
