Volvo C40 Recharge Launch Evening
On the evening of the 26th of October our Volvo team, guests and wider Archibalds’ members gathered in the showroom for a very exciting vehicle launch: the Volvo C40 Recharge.
Let’s Set the Scene
Anticipation was high among the guests as they arrived at the showroom, greeted by Sales Manager Corey Gray and Volvo Sales Executive Emma Schuyl. Drinks and nibbles (courtesy of our next-door neighbour Tuam Street Kitchen) were served whilst everyone chatted about the C40 Recharge, covered in the centre of the room. On the menu were delicious prosciutto, tomato, basil, and mozzarella en croute, coconut poached chicken rice paper rolls with salad and fresh herbs, and four cheese truffle arancini. Before the reveal of the C40 Recharge, guests had the chance to mix, mingle, and chat about everything new at Archibalds Volvo.
Unveiling the C40 Recharge
Everyone was extremely excited to be among the first in New Zealand to set their eyes on this highly-anticipated model. The C40 Recharge is Vovlo’s first ever pure electric crossover with a leather-free interior, clever storage solutions, lofty seating height, and Google built-in. Promising to deliver an exhilarating experience, its streamlined silhouette and contrast roof as well as back-lit ambience create a standout profile.
As the cover was pulled off, there was a collective (and well-deserved) excited gasp and clapping all throughout the room. Showcased in Volvo’s stunning Fusion Red vibrancy, the all-new C40 shined. Built to stand out, you couldn’t help but admire it! Archibald’s General Manager Anthony Kearns and Volvo Sales Executive Emma Schuyl had the pleasure of introducing the vehicle to guests and taking them through all the top-of-the-line features.
