We want to deal more detailed on this site with the new XC 90 T8. You can learn more about the 'normal' XC 90 here. As you can see in the first picture above, it's a plug-in hybrid. But this term is not used, but one emphasizes the presence of two engines, front the combustion engine, rear the electric.

Here you can see once again the possible cooperation of the two. As with the smaller models already, an all-wheel system without cardan shaft can be implemented therewith. Their space in the centre tunnel and a little more now takes the high-voltage battery, rechargeable with no fewer than 9.2 kWh, the allows 40 km all-electric driving according to the manufacturer, however, a maximum of 125 km/h.

With some justification, you may be wondering now why Volvo has combined the hybrid drive with a petrol engine this time, instead with the actually 4,300 euros cheaper diesel. Add the power of the electric motor to that of the diesel engine, then the combination is still always 11 kW (15 hp) lower than that of the petrol engine.

The hybrid shall therefore be positioned as the strongest XC 90, understandable in view of 19,000 euros surcharge. In this price, however, is still included the indeed nice, but not necessarily needed starter generator acting directly on the crankshaft, the electric drive also promises for the front axle.

If you would omit the expensive rear-wheel drive and this electric motor, operable with 34 kW even reinforce something, then would come out a fine and ecological or economical solution. But even so starting with electric power is possible and seamless transition to petrol operation. In addition, both can be combined. 03/15
