#BUROEats: Discovering cafes in Klang Valley with the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric

As avid cafe and dining enthusiasts, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to embark on monthly cafe-hopping adventures–which we’ve dubbed #BUROEats—to find out what’s hot, new, trendy, not to mention delicious, in the city and the surrounding Klang Valley. Giving our regular escapade a twist this month, we took the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric for a test drive to discover its capabilities and lasting battery power as we cruise from Bangsar to Kuala Lumpur, Bamboo Hills and finally, Cyberjaya.

Firstly, let’s talk about the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric itself. With its sleek and modern design, the electrified vehicle truly stands out on the road. Its electric powertrain ensures a quiet and serene ride, perfect for enjoying the scenic city views between destinations. The XC40 Recharge Pure Electric’s impressive range allowed us to explore multiple cafes without worrying about running out of power. Ahead, we list down a list of locations we stopped at.

Aside from the great food, we were certainly glad to have the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric for our #BUROEats adventure. Offering plenty of power and poise, its pure electric drive delivered an engaging ride that was smooth, quiet and enjoyable at the same time. Best of all, we visited all our destinations with zero tailpipe emissions and that was as satisfying as the culinary delights we experienced along the way. All in all, never once did we have range anxiety, with more than 400 kilometres on a full charge. Plus, there are more convenient charging stations coming up around the Klang Valley if your own foodie hunt takes you further. For more information on the EV, click here.
