Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid

Our plug-in hybrid technology means you get an uncompromising driving experience with excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions all at the same time. That's why this solution is as important today as it is in our future.

Our XC90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid is the latest milestone on this journey. In addition to a super- and turbo-charged high performance petrol engine, it has a potent electric motor which delivers instant and impressive torque to the rear wheels. This motor is powered by high-capacity batteries mounted centrally along the transmission tunnel. It's an intelligent positioning which gives you excellent weight distribution and, as a consequence, outstanding handling.

The T8 Twin Engine can handle most people's daily commutes in pure electric mode - but because the high-performance petrol engine can be called upon at any time, there's never any worry about range.

Charging the battery is quick and easy. Drive the car and the battery charges itself, thanks to regenerative braking. If you need to top it up, plug it into the mains supply and the battery can be fully charged in under three hours. Adding to your convenience, the Volvo On Call app shows battery and charge status. It also allows you to remotely schedule battery charging using a time function.

Elegant Scandinavian design

Refined strength defines the XC90. This is an SUV that combines powerful, distinctive looks with beautiful Scandinavian design that projects elegance. The upright grille and strong shoulder line convey confidence. At the rear, the tail lights frame the shape of the car, creating an unmistakable outline.

Enjoy the drive

Refined and relaxing, the XC90 offers first-class comfort over long distances. Double wishbone suspension at the front and our unique integral link rear axle, built from lightweight materials, help to save weight and ensure the XC90 responds precisely. It also contributes to a quiet, vibration-free ride, helped by laminated windows that reduce noise.

A place to relax

We designed and built the cabin of the XC90 with the best of Scandinavian design and Swedish craftsmanship. Clean, uncluttered design gives a feeling of calm that helps you relax. Scandinavian details delight the senses, such as the Flame Birch wooden inlays and the Orrefors crystal glass gear shifter for the T8 Twin Engine.

Journeys made easier

Volvo Cars' Pilot Assist helps keep the XC90 at a set speed and distance to the vehicle in front of you, using steering input to keep you in the centre of your lane. Pilot Assist works at speeds up to 130km/h, and is particularly helpful in highway conditions, helping to reduce some of the effort required when driving in heavy traffic.

Travelling in the XC90 always feels special - from the moment you pick up your sculptured remote control key. In the lavishly appointed cabin, luxurious materials and superb craftsmanship meet with uncluttered elegance. The airy interior gives you the luxury of space and calm - no matter which of the three seat rows you sit in. The mood of tranquil seclusion is accentuated by eye-catching details like the diamond-knurled control surfaces and the beautifully framed tablet-sized centre display with touch screen, which takes pride of place in the centre stack.

Our CleanZone technologies filter out harmful gases and particles, ensuring that you and your passengers breathe easy - even in polluted cities. And you'll love our 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins, which offers sublime concert-quality sound for the most exacting audiophiles.

When we designed the Volvo XC90, we made sure you travel in first class. The sculptured seats offer 21st-century luxury in look, feel and style while allowing more rear legroom. And you can sit easy in the knowledge that they've been designed in line with the latest ergonomic research. Add to this heating, massage and ventilation, power-operated lumbar support, extendable seat cushions and side bolsters: you'll never want to get out of the car.

We create technology to serve you and make life easier. Everything that's complicated or doesn't add to your experience is removed. You control your Volvo intuitively and easily. Instead of a multitude of physical buttons, you find a large, 9-inch centre display with touch screen. It's as easy and straightforward to operate as your smartphone, with bold, clear graphics so you can keep your attention on the road.
