Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts, is delighted to announce its new partnership with Volvo Cars Poole as the Ringwood Road retailer launches Volvo’s first pure electric crossover, the C40 Recharge Pure Electric.

“Electric cars are the future of motoring and with sustainability at the heart of everything we do at Lighthouse, we’re excited that the support of Volvo Cars Poole will help focus attention on environmentally friendly ways of travelling to the theatre,” says Tom Shallaker, Lighthouse Fundraising Manager.

Leanne Ledger, Head of Business at Volvo Cars Poole, part of Ocean Automotive adds: “Fully electric and plug-in hybrid models accounted for almost one in five new car registrations in 2021. Volvo was the first manufacturer to have a plug-in hybrid version of every car in the line-up, and the pure electric C40 now joins the awarding winning XC40 in our electric range.”

The innovative Volvo C40 offers a range of 273 miles on a single charge, is 100% free of leather, takes just 37 minutes for a 192-mile charge and comes with Google built-in.

We will have a brand-new Volvo C40 on display here at Lighthouse this week, so come and see it for yourself from Thursday 7 to Saturday 9 April.
