      XC40 Recharge Wheel Options

      Does anyone know why the pure electric XC40 is incompatible with Volvo's 21" XC40 wheel options? Is it an issue with the regen brakes?

      No wheel should interfere with the brakes providing they physically fit. They just don't show the wheels because it probably doesn't align with their "package", just like you can't select some of the other wheels when you chose an RDesign package, etc.

      Really, regen braking doesn't have anything to do with the actual brake hardware on the car. In layman's terms it's just using the electric motor(s) to brake, relying less on actual friction. Think of engine braking with a manual trans.
