Efficient power, no compromise

Our innovative new powertrains strike the perfect balance between power and efficiency, giving you the driving pleasure you desire from a Volvo and incredibly low emissions and fuel consumption.

We combine lightweight engines with supercharging, turbocharging and electrification for outstanding performance with less impact on the environment. It’s intelligent technology that gives you the best of all worlds. We call it Drive-E.


Powerful, compact, efficient.

Our all-new Drive-E powertrains combine the low-fuel consumption and emissions of a four-cylinder engine with the handling and performance of a six or eight-cylinder. The result: a smooth, powerful ride—with less stops at the pump.

Clean efficiency

By improving fuel economy and minimising CO2 emissions, Drive-E technology reduces your ownership costs and your impact on the environment.

Drive-E powertrains set new standards for efficiency, making them more enjoyable to drive and better for the world around us. They are central to our vision of sustainability, and to creating cars that are Designed Around You.

The future is electric

Electrification helps us to create cars that are luxurious, efficient and offer zero-emissions running. That’s why we are planning a new range of plug-in hybrid models, and why our next generation of cars have been designed from the outset for electrification. As always we are looking further ahead, working on ways to improve life in the future.
