Rented an XC40 Recharge using the Volvo on Demand service
This car comes with the Android OS, and I believe that’s why there is only Apple CarPlay available.

Volvo On Demand – XC40 Recharge
Here are some photos I took when I rented out the XC40 EV.
The XC40 EV waiting at the On Demand reserved parking spot. (The PHEV XC40 is standing in the neighboring spot, and that was the first car I had rented in Sweden).
The interiors for my ride were in a dark shade, just like the winter days here. The seat was electronically adjustable, with under-thigh support. There was a huge panoramic sunroof which I did not photograph since I was quite focused on driving. I’m sure you understand.
The cabin was clean.
Crisp, minimalist dashboard.
Well stitched together 360-degree camera.
Climate control screen. Quite fiddly to use on the move.
The app screen. This car comes with the Android OS, and I believe that’s why there is only Apple CarPlay available. The integrated Google Maps was perfectly fine to use. Bluetooth pairing was nice and quick. To install new apps would mean logging in with a Google account.
96% state of charge at the end of a 15 KM drive.
Charging port and indicator lights.
Charging status is displayed even when the car is locked. There was also an indicator ring around the edges of the digital gauge cluster.
My experience up till now
My experience with using the service has been quite good, though I do concede I have only rented out twice.
- The app is great to use, the app user experience is superb
- Information is easy to find, lots of help documentation within the app itself
- Cars have been clean and in good driving condition
That’s all, folks!
Hope you enjoyed the first series of posts. There will be more down the line as I intend to use this thread as a journal of sorts.
