Bangkok – Volvo’s luxurious and smooth-handling S90 T8 Twin Engine Plug-in Hybrid 407 HP / R-Design won the award for Best Hybrid Mid-size Sedan Under 2,000 c.c. at the recently held 2019 Car of the Year Awards, hosted by Grand Prix International, Pcl, organizer of the Bangkok International Motor Show 2019. On hand to accept the award was Jean-David Harel, Marketing Director of Volvo (Thailand).




For its norm-breaking drivability in a range of tight urban conditions, the S90 T8 R-Design injects an infusion of sportiness and smart, state-of-the-art technologies to lend an unmistakable presence on Thai roads.




Mr. Jean-David Harel, Marketing Director, Volvo Car (Thailand) Company Limited, reveals that “we are very grateful to receive “Best Hybrid Midsize Sedan Under 2,000 cc” at 2019 Car of the Year Awards, as it is the most competitive segment within the Premium market. It demonstrates a new dimension of Swedish design in pursuit of giving a more sporting, distinctive road presence.”




The S90 T8 R-Design is fitted with a piano black grille, silk metal side window trim, silk metal door mirror caps and dual integrated tail pipes create a car that stands out. This purposeful look is augmented with attractive and bold alloy wheels, with 19-inch items to make your S90 stand out further still. Inside, a high-quality feel meets a sophisticated, technical look with Perforated Nappa leather/Nubuck textile upholstery, Metal Mesh aluminium inlays and offers a Harman Kardon Premium sound experience with 14 loudspeakers. In addition, Volvo’s T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid powerplant raises the game even further – it is resolutely the leading Plug-in Hybrid in the market, and the only one to combine power of 407hp, fuel efficiency of 55.6 km/l and driving range of 52.03 km in Pure mode.




The award is the latest proof of Volvo’s commitment to creating a car that puts people first, and allows drivers and passengers to enjoy safe, smooth journeys that optimize personal comfort and choice.
