Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid reaches Indian shores ahead of launch

The Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid has landed in India ahead of its official launch later this year. This is the top-of-the-line variant of the Swedish automaker’s flagship SUV and will be the first petrol variant for the same India.

The hybrid in the name comes from the way Volvo has setup this SUV. Firstly, there are two power trains working together. The front wheels are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol motor and an electric motor. Powering the rear wheels is another electric motor which when all put together provides AWD capability as well 420bhp and a whopping 640Nm of torque. The batteries for the electric motors can be recharged on the go as well as through a wall unit which takes about 2.5 hours for a full charge. The pure electric range is around 30km.

In terms of design, there is very little to separate the cars that are currently on sale from this T8 hybrid apart from some badging at the rear and the electric motor charging point in the front.  These cars will be brought in via the CBU route and are expected to be priced around Rs 87 lakh after the government discount for hybrid vehicles.
