Especially as a novice EV driver, looking for the smartest driving style is to squeeze as many kilometers as possible from the battery pack of your car. It can also help to use certain comfort facilities in a different way. For example, the heating and air conditioning consume electricity. Many brands have apps that help the EV driver with this.
Volvo comes with an agreement the air update which ensures that battery capacity is used more intelligently and that regeneration is more efficient.

Unfortunately, Volvo does not report exactly what the improved software and the app will yield in practice.
The update also fixes some bugs in the infotainment and includes refinements to the safety systems. The new electric Volvo C40 is already equipped with the latest software ex works.
