Plug-in hybrid edition of Volvo XC90

Performance without compromise


What if you could enjoy the twin benefits of an electric motor and a regular engine? Well, Volvo’s world-first plug-in hybrid technology brings you the best of all worlds – outstandingly good fuel economy, ultra-low emissions and excellent performance.

At Volvo we call our Plugin Hybrid's, Twin Engine because it uses our most powerful Drive-E petrol engine together with an electric motor. And as you’d expect, it has full four-wheel drive capability. 

Ultimately, it’s all about Volvo Cars’ Drive-E mission to protect the world we live in – and to meet the challenges that the future is bringing us right now. 

Embracing fully electric cars, plug-in hybrids and mild hybrid cars

With hybrid power, you use less fuel and produce fewer emissions, but we believe you shouldn’t sacrifice a great driving experience. Rest assured, you’ll enjoy truly exhilarating performance from our Twin Engine hybrid powertrain, with over 400hp to draw on.

Whatever your journey, you’ve got a mode to suit

No more will you have to compromise on your driving experience to drive cleaner. With an electric motor and an efficient diesel engine both on demand at the touch of a button, the choice is all yours.

Hybrid Mode

Hybrid mode uses both the electric and combustion motors, optimised for performance, fuel consumption and comfort.

Pure Mode

Commuting to work? Switch to pure mode for short trips across town. You’ll use zero fuel and produce zero emissions – and travel in whisper-quiet comfort.

Power Mode

Use power mode for sporty, quick-response driving with sharper throttle response, and all four wheels driven.

Save Mode

Switch to ‘save’ to ensure that battery charge will be available to you later in your journey – so if you’re heading into a city, you’ll always have battery power.

Pure hybrid power

Just like our XC90 T8 Twin Engine, the V60 D6 AWD Plug-in Hybrid delivers brilliant fuel economy and low emissions, plus fantastic performance – how good does a 0-60mph sprint in just 5.8 seconds sound? And for many, memories of fuel pump forecourts could become just that – memories. In pure electric mode, you can cover up to 31 miles of zero-emissions driving – ideal for commuting.
