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.

Pure

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.

Hybrid

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.

Power

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.

Charge & Drive

There has never been a better time to switch to electric mobility. Our cars are designed with you in mind for an easier and more enjoyable everyday experience.

Charge your Volvo

Whether you charge your car at home, at the office or in the city centre, you’ll find it as easy as charging your phone.
