While both the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Ford Mustang Mach-E offer competing characteristics as compact electric SUVs, such as attractive interiors and cutting-edge safety systems, only one will be the be-all and end-all for buyers. While these two cars are nearly identical, the Volvo XC40 Recharge has a few benefits. We'll compare the 2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge to the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E in this post to see how they compare and which electric SUV is ideal for you.

Design & Style

Performance SUVs are exciting, but an SUV must also be functional. Both of these candidates are strong competitors. Starting with cargo, the XC40 Recharge has a capacity of 57.5 cubic feet, while the Mustang Mach-E has a capacity of 59.7 cubic feet. With 104 cubic feet of passenger space vs 96 cubic feet for the XC40 Recharge, the Mustang Mach-E takes another victory. For more adventurous journeys, the Volvo XC40 Recharge's ground clearance of 6.9 inches easily outperforms the Mustang Mach-E with 5.7 inches.

Technology & Safety

The Mustang Mach-E has a more technologically advanced design, whilst the XC40 Recharge pampers you with high-quality surfaces, premium materials, as well as a luxury-first layout. A third-party Mustang Mach-E evaluation confirms this. That isn't to suggest the XC40 Recharge isn't a technological marvel. The tech clash begins with the XC40 Recharge's standard 12-inch digital instrument panel vs the Mustang Mach-10.2-inch E's display.

The Mustang Mach-E has a larger infotainment touchscreen than the XC40 Recharge, at 15.5 inches instead of 9 inches. Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM are standard features on both the Mustang Mach-E and the Volvo XC40 Recharge. The XC40 Recharge, on the other hand, comes standard with a panoramic sunroof and heated seats with four-way power lumbar support. Seat heating seems to be the only feature offered on the Mustang Mach-E, and it is an optional addition.


The Mustang Mach-E is available with two types of battery sizes, which is the 68 kWh Standard Range (SR) pack as well as a 88 kWh Extended Range (ER) pack. Second, the range will differ based on the drive configuration and trim level. A Mustang Mach-E Select SR eAWD has an EPA-estimated range of 211 miles. On the upper end, a Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 ER RWD has an EPA-estimated range of 305 miles.

Only one battery - a 75 kWh uni - is available for the 2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge. So is the drive configuration, which is only available as an AWD car. In terms of range, the EPA estimates 208 miles. 1 So the Mustang Mach-E wins the first round in the Ford Mustang Mach-E vs. Volvo XC40 Recharge war, but not by much because it costs a lot more to upgrade.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Volvo will not disappoint if you're seeking a compact electric SUV with outstanding performance, exceptional build quality, and top-tier safety features. With so many trim possibilities, you'll be able to choose one that matches your budget while also meeting your needs in any situation.
