Volvo might get a cheaper XC90 T8 Hybrid with seven seats

Volvo has recently launched the top-spec variant of its flagship SUV, the XC90 T8 hybrid. Being offered in the ‘Excellence’ trim only, it seats four in ultimate luxury. But for those who would want to drive around with more people, Volvo may have a seven seat option in the making.

The Excellence trim is fully loaded with aircraft-like recliner seats in the back, refrigerator, individual display screens et al. Priced at Rs 1.25 crore, the 400-odd bhp 650Nm yacht should be a greener alternative to the Mercedes S-Class and its likes. But in India, when you opt for an SUV, apart from the macho image you also want to have that option of seating more people.

Volvo India has said that they are open to create a seven-seater option of the XC90 T8 hybrid. While they would like to make the hybrid technology more accessible to buyers it also depends upon the kind of response the XC90 garners. If they come across more customers looking for a seven-seater option for the T8, Volvo might go ahead and build it and can be expected in the first quarter of 2017 at the earliest. Also, the price tag will certainly go lower and can be expected to be around Rs 1 crore for the Inscription trim of the T8 hybrid.
