As we're now solidly into 2023, there are a lot of choices when it comes to the EV market. Many brands have now launched their flagship models to try and stand out from the rest. Here's why I think the Volvo C40 is among the best of them and, in its own way, sets a standard.

The Volvo C40 was one of the first vehicles to have a Google OS built-in. What does that mean for you? All of your Google account details, maps, reminders, appointments, and even Google Nest home services can be controlled from inside your car. Forgot to lock your doors? "Hey Google, lock the doors at my house." With full Google integration, everything you need is right there in front of you on a large 12.3" touchscreen display.

Another standout mention is Volvo's safety. Safety is always a top priority for Volvo, and the C40 does not disappoint. It received a perfect score from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in all crash tests, including the difficult small overlap front test (As well as every other Volvo Model, a first for any auto manufacturer in the industry). It also comes with a host of advanced safety features, such as automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring.

Volvo really designed the C40 to be the ultimate car for a city dweller, with over 400hp and a range of 220+ miles, it's built to get you there quickly, safely, and efficiently. That's not to say you can't road trip in this car; it's capable of fast charging to 80% in less than 40 minutes, so you can quickly get back on the road to your destination. Google Maps makes it easy; just set your route, and it will automatically tell you where you need to stop and charge along your route, as well as total charge times.

But the C40 isn't just a practical choice; it's also a stylish one. The car's sleek, aerodynamic design is sure to turn heads, with its low profile and sporty stance. The C40 also comes with a variety of customizable options, allowing you to make the car truly your own through driver profiles that save even the smallest setup details like radio volume, station, or air temperature.

Overall, the 2023 Volvo C40 is a perfect choice for anyone looking for a car that combines style, technology, and safety. Its advanced features and electric powertrain make it a great choice for those looking to reduce their environmental impact, while its Google operating system and IIHS records make it a practical and safe choice for any driver. With the 2023 Volvo C40, you'll have a car that truly fits your lifestyle. Visit us today at to learn more.
