It's the all-electric followup to Volvo's successful XC40 crossover-SUV.

How can you tell it's electric? Well, look closely at the badge: P8 means 402 horses from two electric motors.

That grille is a sure sign, too.

And under the hood? Yeah, no engine there.

Storage out back is basically the same as a regular XC40, though, so there's no loss in practicality.

But otherwise it's the same clean, charming style we've come to love in the XC40.

You will pay for it, though: $54,985 after a $995 destination charge.

Not cheap, especially for a car with little over 200 miles of range, but it never doesn't feel worth it.
