For every you. Smart. Versatile. Fresher than ever. Meet our compact SUV – for every version of you.
Go the extra mile. Harness energy for a smoother drive with our mild hybrids.
Our mild hybrids recover energy produced when braking and store it in a 48V battery. When this energy is used, fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions are both reduced.
The XC40 mild hybrid has been engineered to deliver smooth take-offs and refined acceleration, making both city and highway journeys more refined.
Every drop of fuel saved helps – and in our mild hybrids, you enjoy lower fuel consumption without experiencing performance compromises.
You told us, we delivered. Discover the smart details and enabling tech your life demands.
What is a mild hybrid?
A mild hybrid is also considered to be an electrified car. Mild hybrids use both a combustion engine and an electric motor to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy. They do this by using energy stored in a 48-volt battery that is generated by braking. This energy is then used to boost the combustion engine during start-up and take-off.
Does the electric motor propel a mild hybrid?
No. The electric motor is there to assist the engine and to reduce the amount of work it needs to do.
What is the main benefit of a mild hybrid?
A mild hybrid will offer reduced fuel consumption and thereby lower tailpipe emissions. Mild hybrids also contribute to smooth take-offs and are generally more affordable than full hybrids or plug-in hybrids.
What is the difference between a mild hybrid, a full hybrid and a plug-in hybrid?
A mild hybrid uses the electric motor to assist the combustion engine. A full hybrid has a larger electric motor and battery than a mild hybrid. A full hybrid can power the car using the electric motor for short distances and recharges its battery using the engine or through regenerative braking. A plug-in hybrid can be recharged by literally plugging it into a home charging station or using a public charging station. A plug-in hybrid offers a greater pure electric range thanks to a larger battery pack and electric motor. A plug-in hybrid will meet the daily commuting needs of many people.
