Get ready to want a Volvo XC40 crossover
Volvo has confirmed it will launch a new XC40 crossover to compete in the growing compact SUV market. This stylish and full feature Volvo will carry Volvo’s new generation of engines, hybrid system and high quality interior (shared with the soon to arrive S90 sedan).
The plug-in hybrid version of XC40 is to arrive on the market in 2018 as the XC40 T5 Twin Engine. Specifications include a 9.7 kWh battery and a 55 kW electric motor (FWD), coupled with 3-cylinder petrol engine and 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
The PHEV is said to be good for 50km of all electric range, however in the real world one should likely expect about 40km.
