VOLVO PREPARES FOR 2018 XC40 HYBRID

By the end of this year, consumers can expect a plug-in hybrid version of the all-new Volvo XC40.


The industry-standard 50km (31 miles) of electric range is most likely. However, when using petrol and electric power together, performance will be similar to the existing non-hybrid XC40 T5 which possesses a four-cylinder petrol producing 250 bhp.


Specs include a 9.7 kWh battery and a 55 kW electric motor (FWD), coupled with a three-cylinder petrol engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.


The three-cylinder petrol engine will also be used in other Volvos as a mild hybrid. It's been built along the same production line as the current four-cylinder. Volvo has also stated that the T5 Twin Engine powertrain will also go into the 60-series vehicles in the future.


While the brand new compact modular architecture structure vehicle isn't yet available, consumers can look forward to a more space-efficient and user-friendly vehicle when both drivetrains hit dealerships this year.


We will keep you posted on all things XC40 and can't wait to get behind the wheel of one ourselves!
