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.
1 million electrified vehicles sold by 2025
Over the past five years, Volvo Cars has developed two new base platforms and a range of efficient four-cylinder only engines, all designed from the outset with electrification at the forefront. As Volvo Cars rolls this technology out across its full range of products, we will offer at least two hybrid versions of every model and will release our first all-electric car by 2019. This has already started with the T8 petrol plug-in hybrid versions of the XC90, S90 and V90 and the imminent arrival of the XC60 later this year.
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.
