Efficient power, no compromise

Drive-E

Innovations for a cleaner, more thrilling drive. 

What if you could combine power, efficiency, and a superior experience on the road with sustainable driving?

Our new generation of Drive-E powertrains has done just that, allowing you to enjoy an exhilarating cruise down the road, but with far less fuel and emissions.

And it doesn’t stop there. Drive-E is an all-encompassing commitment to sustainability. Everything from our cars’ materials to our factories are created with an environmentally-friendly approach.

Responsive power

Our Drive-E range includes some of the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engines. This new family of powertrains uses supercharging and turbocharging, as well as advanced transmissions, to provide responsive power with far lower fuel consumption and emissions. Electrification allows us to achieve even more. In Power mode the XC90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid accelerates from 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds, making it a true high-performance car.

Clean efficiency

By improving fuel economy and minimizing CO2 emissions, Drive-E technology reduces your ownership costs and your impact on the environment.

Drive-E powertrains set new standards for efficiency, making them more enjoyable to drive and better for the world around us. They are central to our vision of sustainability, and to creating cars that are Designed Around You.

Twin Engine – performance without compromise

Our Twin Engine models have plug-in hybrid powertrains that give you effortless performance, zero-emissions capability and a drive mode to suit every need. They are our most powerful yet most fuel-efficient cars, and demand no compromise on safety, luxury or interior space. Twin Engine models are the ultimate expression of the Drive-E philosophy, and make every journey feel special.

The future is electric

Electrification helps us to create cars that are luxurious, efficient and offer zero-emissions running. That’s why we are planning a new range of plug-in hybrid models, and why our next generation of cars have been designed from the outset for electrification. As always we are looking further ahead, working on ways to improve life in the future.
