While we try and get our hands on one for a detailed test drive report, here's the low down on the powerplant. It is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol motor, that is turbocharged as well as supercharged. If that wasn't enough, the boffins at Volvo decided to pair it to an electric motor as well. The result is a delicious 407PS of power and 640Nm of torque. And, just like the standard diesel XC90, the hybrid too gets an 8-speed gearbox and all-wheel-drive. It gets three drive modes namely Pure, Hybrid and Power. The first mode makes the XC90 an EV, which lets it go up to speeds of 120kmph. Hybrid and Power modes use both the fuel and electric motors. Obviously, the Power mode utilises practically every single ounce of power available making the Swede sprint to 100kmph in just 5.6 seconds.
Two charging stations are included in the price of the vehicle, which can be installed at the locations of choice. The station will charge the SUV up in just 2.5 hours. Volvo claims a range of 80 kilometres per day of emission-free driving.
The XC90, in its diesel avatar goes up against the likes of the Audi Q7, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and the BMW X5. But, none of its rivals feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain in India. In fact, Audi and BMW do not offer petrol motors for their SUVs, as opposed to Mercedes, that offers the GLE with a V6 petrol engine.
Plug-in hybrids are still in a nascent stage, especially for our market. Volvo's move of getting the flagship XC90 is bold, sure, but not without reason. With stricter emission norms and arbitrary bans flying left, right and centre, it pays to have an alternative in the portfolio.
