Volvo has just published a good amount of detail about your 2015 Volvo XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid version of the top-end SUV brand with which wants to become one of the references with this technology. As defined by Volvo will be a hybrid SUV low consumption and emissions while a performance SUV.
And not without reason. The Volvo XC90 T8 offer combined 400 horses a figure that allows an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in just 5.9 seconds. Blame for this have a 4 cylinder engine Drive-E with compressor and turbo with an output of 318 horses and an electric motor that provides 80 horses.
The most interesting is the arrangement of all these elements. While the combustion engine will power the front axle the electric motor will do the same in the rear offering an AWD system that can force through driving modes which will be in May.
The hybrid mode combine the best way both engines the Power mode will adjust the thrusters for maximum response the Pure EV mode only use the electric motor to move with a range of up to 40 kilometers while the Save mode keep the load battery for later use. The AWD mode as mentioned all-wheel drive force.
It is a similar operation at Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid although with a different layout. Among the new Volvo XC90 T8 is a generator between the combustion engine and the gearbox with different roles. On the one hand starter serve to smooth the passage between full electric mode and the start of the combustion engine but also serve as a generator at peak times providing an extra 150 Nm of torque.
The result is a Volvo consumption stands at just 2.5 l / 100 km with emissions of 59 g / km of CO2. They are really interesting figures for a car of its size and weight fueled by the ability of being able to drive plugged into the network and run those 40 miles in all-electric mode.
