Twin Engine from Volvo Cars
Plug-in hybrid technology
We call our plug-in hybrid car technology Twin Engine. This advanced technology combines effortless performance with a drive mode to suit every need.
Plug-in to the future
Our Twin Engine cars deliver the one of the most powerful and yet most fuel-efficient driving experiences available today. A no-compromise combination of pure battery electric power and an efficient petrol engine give new meaning to the word flexibility and a driving experience you won’t forget.
Volvo Cars’ plug-in hybrid Twin Engine technology has been added to every new model we have launched since 2014, delivering a no-compromise mix of pure hybrid power.
Drive modes for every occasion
We’ve engineered our Twin Engine plug-in hybrid models to meet the discerning needs of our drivers. With a range of drive modes to choose from you will glide through your day in Pure mode, zoom through it in Power mode, or maximise efficiency with Hybrid mode.
In Pure mode your car uses only electric power. A fully charged battery will enable many people the possibility to commute to and from work every day in Pure mode, thereby eliminating emissions and saving on fuel costs.
In Hybrid mode your Twin Engine model uses the electric motor and the internal combustion engine to best effect, maximizing efficiency while minimizing emissions. Hybrid mode is optimal for most driving conditions.
When the desire for a more sporty driving experience strikes you, choose Power mode. It combines the power of the electric motor and the combustion engine to deliver a truly high-performance driving experience.
