* This is a hybrid plug-in vehicle. Since electricity is not measured in gallons, a conversion factor is used to translate the fuel economy into miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe). Use for comparison purposes only. Your MPGe will vary for many reasons, including but not limited to, driving conditions, how and where you drive, how you maintain your vehicle battery-package/condition, and other factors.

What else do you want to know about Volvo plug-in hybrids?

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.

Volvo Cars is currently using Lithium-ion battery packs in its Recharge plug-in hybrid cars.

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.

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.

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.

A mild hybrid, which can’t be charged via a cable, uses an integrated starter generator 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.

All our models are available with Recharge plug-in hybrid powertrain technology.

Your Volvo Recharge plug-in hybrid comes with a standard charging cable that meets high electrical safety requirements (Mode 2). Available in different variants (6A, 8A or 10A depending on market), this 7 m cable allows up to 1.4–2.3 kW charging via a household socket. For really convenient and faster charging at home we recommend installing our 3-phase wallbox where available. Capable of charging up to 22 kW, this wallbox is also compatible with future generations of electric cars. For convenient and secure charging out of home, there’s also a Mode 3 charging cable 1-phase 16A available as an accessory. This cable is convenient to have on hand when there are no cables at the charging station. For more detailed information, please contact your Volvo car retailer.

Please note: the availability of charging equipment may vary depending on market.
