Electric cars with a backup plan
What if we didn't just look at the number of electric cars, but the number of electric journeys we enable?
Electric most of the time
With our plug-in hybrids, you can make sure most of your everyday journeys are pure electric.
Hybrid when you need it
Whenever you need to go on a longer journey, hybrid mode has you covered.
Reduced tailpipe emissions. No compromises performance.
All our plug-in hybrid models deliver a powerful, responsive drive with smooth, quiet acceleration. You can also choose from multiple driving modes to fine tune your ride.
Using the Volvo Cars app, you can monitor average fuel consumption, battery charge levels and average use of electricity compared with fuel.
Energy created when braking is harnessed and stored in the car’s battery for future use, allowing you to drive more sustainably and economically .

What is a plug-in hybrid car?
A plug-in hybrid car, also known as a PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle), is a car that uses both a conventional petrol engine and a battery-powered electric motor to provide power to the wheels.
What kind of battery is used in the Volvo Recharge plug-in hybrids?
Volvo Cars is currently using Lithium-ion battery packs in its Recharge plug-in hybrid cars.
What is the pure electric range of a plug-in hybrid car?
Our Recharge plug-in hybrids are designed to meet many people’s daily commuting need. Range will of course vary depending upon model, driving style, topography and road conditions. The main benefit of a plug-in hybrid is that you always have the petrol engine as back-up between charges, so range should not be an issue.
How and where do I charge my plug-in hybrid car?
Most people charge their cars at home overnight, with a charging wall box in their carport or garage. Others have the possibility to charge their car at work or at public charging stations, which in many areas are becoming increasingly easier to find.
How long does it take to charge the battery?
Charging times will vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, current battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition. You will find specific charging times in the technical specifications for each available plug-in hybrid model.
