The T8 Twin Engine is the
plug-in hybrid version of Volvo’s highly rated XC90, delivering strong
performance levels, as well as a low-carbon tyre print. The T8 Twin Engine is
also extremely cost-effective to run – a definite plus for businesses and
growing families alike.
The XC90 Twin Engine is a subtly styled crossover that looks good in any situation. The car rides on lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, each sporting an attractive five-spoke design. The vehicle also comes with a range of body-coloured fixtures, including electrically operated and heated door mirrors that are fitted with integrated indicator lights. Further illumination includes LED low-to-high-beam headlights, which react automatically to oncoming vehicles.
Inside the XC90 Twin Engine, seven supportive seats are provided, ensuring a comfortable ride for large families or a group of colleagues. The driver further benefits from an adjustable combination of seating and steering wheel, enabling him or her to establish their ideal position. The vehicle’s plug-in hybrid engine delivers a refined ride, which helps invest the cabin with a particularly serene ambience. As well as providing plenty of room for each traveller, the car also features a minimum-capacity 316-litre boot space, which can be expanded further when rear seats are folded.
The XC90 Twin Engine is fitted with a 2.0-litre turbo charged petrol engine, which operates in conjunction with an 81bhp electric motor which propels the vehicle’s rear wheels only. Transitioning from electric to petrol power (and vice versa) is seamless, helped by a 25bhp generator that fills the ‘gaps’ between each drive mode. This plug-in hybrid system delivers up to 407bhp, a peak torque of 400Nm and 0-60mph in less than six seconds. Crucially, it can return as much as 134.5mpg, while producing CO2emissions as low as 49g/km. In electric mode alone, the XC90 Twin Engine has a range of 24 miles.
A ten-speaker sound system is included, complete with DAB radio, an AM/FM tuner and a CD/DVD player. Bluetooth connectivity features too, enabling audio streaming, as well as hands-free telephone communication. The car’s infotainment functions are operable via a nine-inch touchscreen, which provides access to – among other things – a satellite navigation system, which offers 3D mapping, real-time alerts and voice control.
The XC90 Twin Engine comes with a five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP – and a plethora of driving aids and passive safety features. Included is City Safety with Steer Assist which detects the presence of other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals, and provides semi-autonomous steering at speeds of up to 80mph.
