ALL NEW PLUG-IN HYBRIDS COME WITH
One year of free electricity
Reduce your carbon footprint with a new plug-in hybrid and we’ll reimburse you for the electricity used while driving.*
Drive electric, with a cashback
To encourage you to drive as sustainably as possible, electricity for one year is included when purchasing a new plug-in hybrid from Volvo. Your cash reward will be calculated based on the kilowatt hours used while driving on electricity, from May 2020 until May 2021. The refund amount will be based on the current consumer price of electricity in your country.
Reduce your emissions
One of our goals is to be climate neutral by 2040. As a step along the way, all Volvo cars are available as plug-in hybrids. By including free electricity when purchasing a plug-in hybrid, we hope to put a spotlight on efficient energy usage and the possibility to cover daily driving needs only on electricity.

What do you want to know about the free electricity offer?
What is included in the free electricity offer?
All new Volvo plug-in hybrid cars ordered from October 16, 2019 and 6 months ahead will get free electricity for one year. This means that you will be reimbursed for the electricity used to charge your car during a 12-month period. You will also be able to track the electricity used and how much the car has been driven in the electrified mode through the Volvo on Call app. The refund will be paid 12 months after the measuring period has started in May 2020.
For how long is this campaign offer valid?
The campaign offer is valid for all new plug-in hybrid cars from Volvo ordered from October 16, 2019 and 6 months ahead.
Are there any limitations of the offer?
Yes. The offer is only applicable if you use the Volvo on Call app and if you keep the car for at least 12 months. If you choose to sell or change the vehicle after more than 12 months ownership but before the closing of the 12-month reimbursement period, you will only be reimbursed for the kWh used during the actual reimbursement period. The reimbursement will be monetary only and potential tax benefit implications will be the responsibility of the individual user.
How will the reimbursement be calculated?
The refund amount will be based on current “consumer price of electricity” per country (amount refunded per customer = consumer price/kWh in country x kWh used by customer). For information about the specific conditions on your market, connect with your local dealer.
How will I get the free electricity cashback?
The refund will be made through the Volvo on Call app in all markets where applicable. No reimbursements will be paid out until May 2021, one year after the measuring period has started.
Is the offer applicable for all types of businesses?
No. The offer is not applicable for rental cars or Volvo Car Company schemes. There may be additional exceptions on your local market, so please connect with your local dealer.
Can Volvo Cars guarantee the availability of plug-in hybrids?
Yes. Volvo Cars has tripled the capacity of our plug-in hybrids as of 2020.
In case of a fleet car, why will Volvo Cars reimburse the main driver rather than the fleet company?
The aim of the campaign is to influence driver behaviour. Reimbursements will be made through the use of Volvo on Call app linked to the main driver of the vehicle.
What will be the benefit for the fleet companies?
Fuel is the second-highest cost of ownership for fleet operators, after depreciation, so it is a key focus area for fleet decision-makers.
Will the offer be made available to customers who placed an order on a plug-in hybrid before October 16, 2019?
No. However, they will also be able to track their electricity consumption in the Volvo on Call app and they will be able to save up to 80 per cent of their fuel expenses by driving in pure mode.
*The offer is only available on Volvo on Call markets. Contact your dealer for local terms and conditions since they may vary.
