What Makes Volvo Hybrid SUVs So Appealing?

Volvo hybrid SUVs are challenging the notion that luxury models can't unite lavish fittings and thrilling power with impressive mileage ratings. If you're unconvinced, just take a look at:

Using a turbocharged/supercharged engine alongside state-of-the-art hybrid technology allows both luxurious Volvo SUVs the ability to cover miles in style without wasting fuel.

The Volvo SUV Hybrid Powertrain

The Volvo XC60 and Volvo XC90 already set the standard for luxury, and their innovative hybrid powertrain does the same for forward-thinking performance.

  • 2.0L In-Line Four-Cylinder Turbocharged/Supercharged Engine

  • 87-hp Electric Motor

  • Lithium-Ion Hybrid Battery

Taken together, the hybrid powertrain produces up to 400 hp at 6,000 rpm and 472 lb-ft of torque at up to 5,400 rpm. Performance is seriously fleet-footed beyond anything you'd expect from a hybrid SUV, and efficiency scores still come in at:

  • Up to 26 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway with the 2018 XC60

  • Up to 26 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with the 2018 XC90

How Does Volvo Hybrid Engineering Work?

The in-line four-cylinder engine is responsible for powering the front wheels, while the electric motor sends power to the rear for instant acceleration. Three drive modes are available:

  • Hit Electric mode for a zero-emission range up to 31 mph, perfect for quick trips around San Antonio.

  • Choose Hybrid mode to utilize both electric motor and gas engine for an optimal blend of performance, efficiency, and comfort.

  • Select Power mode to use all available power when performance needs to be maximized on a commute from Dallas to Houston.

AWD mode activates automatically to ensure faultless traction across slippery conditions. As you drive, the Start/Stop function helps reduces fuel consumption and lower emissions. The eight-speed Geartronic Automatic Transmission reacts seamlessly, whether you're hitting the gas or cruising sedately.
