Greetings from Australia

Post by Sventek » Thu Dec 13, 2018 1:15 pm

Hi everyone,

I guess if we can be in Eurovision, I can join a UK-based XC40 forum! :)

After only a 4-month wait, I pick my XC40 up tomorrow or the day after. To say that I'm looking forward to it would be an understatement. I look forward to getting to know everyone here.

John

Thanks!

I've chosen a Fusion Red R-Design T5 with every option except heated rear seats.

I should add that there are very few variations available in Oz, so choosing all the options isn't as grand as it sounds.

Hi SvenTek - I split my time between UK and Oz, I've not seen any XC40s in the wild in Oz yet - although I don't imagine they will be that common outside urban areas anyway!

I had a quick look on Volvo Australia, it seems only petrol engines are available?!

Yes, only the T4 and T5 engines. The dealer told me that they're waiting for the hybrid and electric versions, which they expect to be extremely popular.
