What else do you want to know about charging?

Plug-in hybrid cars use a lithium-ion battery, similar to, but smaller than, those used in pure electric cars.

Depending on the model, a Volvo plug-in hybrid can manage your daily driving in pure electric mode with zero tailpipe emissions. If you can coordinate charging opportunities at work or other destinations, you can likely make most of your shorter trips entirely electric.

Our plug-in hybrids come with a charging cable which you can use to connect to household power for lightweight charging duty. The car can also be connected to the charging cables present at AC charging points and charging stations. For AC charging points without charging cables, you can complement with a separate cable for that purpose.
