Think you have to compromise power for efficiency? Think again. With a phenomenal 400hp capability, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine Plug-in Hybrid injects muscular power into economic performance. In fact, the new XC90 T8 doesn’t compromise on anything; not power, not performance, and not even space, making it the only full-size seven-seat plug-in hybrid SUV currently on the market.
Five different driving modes let you drive your way, from pure electric only power to hybrid capability or supercharged full power for the ultimate in driving power. You can even combine modes to find just the right drive for you with Individual Mode.
The new XC90 T8 Twin Engine takes luxury to another level, offering a sumptuous interior with unique touches and attention to detail on a truly microscopic level. The body of the car stands proud and strong, with bold styling and refined edges, the final word in style and power.
The XC90 T8 Twin Engine emphasises a less is more philosophy with its interior design, offering clean, uncluttered space with hand-picked details to create a calming and luxurious atmosphere. Soft leather, flame birch wood and diamond-cut buttons show off the elegance of the car, while extra special touches like the Orrefors® crystal glass gear stick, hand crafted using traditional glass-blowing and crystal-cutting techniques, add a level of luxury that goes above and beyond any other SUV.
Designed entirely around people, the car has a spacious and relaxing feel, using materials of only the highest quality for a supreme level of comfort and contrasting soft leather and grainy wood to give a sophisticatedly modern look. The exterior reflects the relaxation of the interior with a wide, open front flowing smoothly to the iconic Volvo curved rear, while subtle hints of power reside in the aerodynamic contours and sweeping profile.
From the basics to the advanced, the XC90 T8 continues Volvo’s excellence in superior safety. Starting with the frame of the car, the passenger compartment is reinforced with Boron steel, the strongest type of steel in the world. Pre-activated safety belts tighten automatically if a collision is likely, and the front seats are imbued with unique, energy-absorbing functionality that prevents whiplash injuries, offering effortless protection from the start.
Of course, it is always best to avoid having an accident at
all, which is why Volvo’s latest IntelliSafe technologies constantly works to
prevent collisions with a combination of radars and 360o sensors for
all-round security. Blind spot sensors will tell you if there is something you
can’t see, and if it is rapidly approaching, from up to 230 feet behind you,
while optional 360o cameras give you a high-resolution bird’s-eye
view of your cars surroundings in your central console for clear protection
from every angle.
Even more cutting-edge technology has been packed into the Volvo XC90 T8, making the redesigned multimedia touchscreen even easier to use. Apple CarPlay seamlessly incorporates your phone to the car, allowing you to access iTunes, Apple Maps, iMessage, contacts and even Siri for iPhone 5 and above.
Volvo is the first manufacturer to integrate the popular music streaming service Spotify into the car’s entertainment system, and with sound provided by Bowers and Wilkins, you’ll be able to recreate the sound of the Gothenburg Concert Hall inside your XC90 T8.
To add to the already incredible features inside the XC90 T8, the new Heads-up display places the car firmly in the future. The ground-breaking system shows information such as navigation, speed and incoming calls that appear as if hovering a few feet in front of the car, translucent and adaptive to surrounding light, the perfect final touch to this luxury SUV.
