This is a good example of what a faulty EGR Valve can do.
I’ve had it before and they can make a car stutter and drop power momentarily.
It’s bizarre to me that many mechanics today aren’t. They’re just IT users.

My 2019 xc40 also has the loss of power akin to a misfire when after 30-40 yards from starting the engine,
Intermittent of course but worrying when you pull out of a junction and the car pretty much stops leaving you to have to resort to a full throttle to get power back on and the car moving before it’s hit by traffic approaching.
Cars in this week for 1st service ,software recall and the worst gearbox on the world (I have to disconnect the battery once a week to try and make sure the gearbox works for a week🙄😮
Not impressed ...

Whaaat? That’s shocking. And downright dangerous.
You seriously need to leave it with the dealer with a list of the faults and tell them not to call you until they’re sorted.
Good luck.

I also experience some loss of power, between 2000-3000 rpm, and it lasts for about 2 seconds. I told the mechanics when I went for a service, and afterwards they told me "they installed new engine software". I have experienced it again though.

I have exactly same problem. After several visits to local dealer there is still no solution available to fix this dangerous power loss problem. Already more than 2 years waiting for Volvo to fix this, but nothing happens. My first and last Volvo ever. Very bad customer service!
