Volvo Car USA recently announced the results of collaborating with the Charleston Battery soccer club: all-new and sleek C40 Recharge inspired uniforms for the club’s 2022 season.


Taking design cues from the distinct layout and aesthetic on the dashboard of the Volvo C40 Recharge, the fresh uniforms reinvent the look for the Charleston area. Where the C40 Recharge offers a topographical depiction of Abisko National Park in Sweden, the new Charleston club jersey gives wearers an artistic representation of the land around Patriots Point – where the Charleston Battery soccer club is based.


“We are delighted to have the opportunity to feature a unique design detail from our Volvo C40 Recharge model on the Battery club uniform,” said Jim Raggi, Head of the Southern Region for Volvo Car USA. “We hope the collaborative design underscores our pride in being part of the Charleston community and dedication to responsible stewardship of the local area.”


Beyond the deluxe topographical design, the club uniform uses high-visibility orange details to also honor Volvo Cars’ history of world-class safety. Like the team’s home and away uniforms, revealed earlier this month, the Volvo Spread Word Mark is featured prominently on the front of the new jersey.


The alternate jersey was worn as the Charleston Battery’s third kit, marking a celebration of the partnership with Volvo Car USA and used by players at select games during the 2022 standard season. The jerseys were first shown at Patriots Point on April 6 when the Battery hosted South Georgia Tormenta FC in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. This uniform completes the trio of new uniforms redesigned for the Battery’s 30th season.


“We’re thrilled to unveil our third kit design in collaboration with Volvo Car USA,” said Battery President of Business Operations, Scott Krenitski. “We couldn’t think of a better way to bring back our alternate jerseys than with a design that highlights Charleston and both organizations’ commitment to the community.”


To show how much it values the Charleston area, Volvo Car USA announced earlier in March a front-of-jersey sponsorship collaboration with the Charleston Battery for the 2022 season. In addition to collaboration on the club’s new uniforms, Volvo Cars envisions using the sponsorship to connect with the Lowcountry to share its innovative new vehicles and spread its message of safety and sustainability.


Open and working since 2018, Volvo Cars’ Charleston-based manufacturing campus employs many local community members. Leaning into Volvo Cars’ global manufacturing strategy, ‘Build where you sell’, the facility manufactures the brand’s S60 sedan and will soon produce Volvo’s next generation electric SUV.
