Hybrid battery

Updated 7/23/2018

The car is equipped with a hybrid battery for electric motor operation - a maintenance-free rechargeable Lithium-ion type battery.

Note

The car cannot be started if the hybrid battery is discharged.

Note

If both the starter battery and the hybrid battery are discharged then both batteries must be charged. In such a case, charging only the hybrid battery first is not possible.

In order for the hybrid battery to be charged the starter battery must have a certain state of charge.

Warning

The hybrid battery must only be replaced by a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
