- All-New XC90 T8 Twin Engine is the world’s most powerful plug-in hybrid and cleanest SUV
- Delivers 49 g/km CO2, combined 640Nm, just 2.1l/100km and 43km pure electric range
The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine has exceeded all expectations when it comes to the no compromise equation of power and
low fuel consumption, coupled with low emissions – and all in a 7-seat luxury SUV.
The improvement over the earlier announced figures were achieved thanks to the continuous innovation cycle at the
Swedish company. The result of further tuning is a drop of 10g/km from the initial prognosis, bringing fuel consumption
down to 2.1l/100 km while also adding horsepower. This makes the All-New XC90 T8 Twin Engine the clear leader in its
segment, with an exceptional combination of low fuel consumption, emissions and pure power.
“We have been working hard to earn our competitive edge and to give our customers the ultimate combination of
performance and low fuel consumption,” said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research & Development at
Volvo Car Group. “Our Twin Engine technology has enabled us to build on our heritage of efficient powertrain
development in a completely new way. Thanks to our new scalable product architecture, and our world class four-cylinder
engines, we have a clear and leading position.”
No other SUV in this class can deliver 43km of pure electric range, 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds and provide combined
power of 295kW – all in a 7 seat configuration.
Details regarding the Australian availability of the all-new Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine will be announced in due
