XC90 success causes Volvo to announce more plug-in hybrids

The Volvo XC90 T8 is selling more than twice as many units as Volvo predicted - initially they had planned on the T8 selling around 10% of total XC90 sales, but it's selling at about 20%. Volvo is offering a plug-in option next on the S90 sedan and the V90 wagon, and is looking at more plug-ins due ...

Re: AutoTrader UK says the XC90 is one of the best 7-seat SU

And, of course, there are now other PHEV 7-seat SUVs available, like the BMW X5 PHEV and the Audi Q7 e-Tron.

It wasn't long ago and there were no options - now we have the ability to test drive and compare multiple plug-in SUVs before making a buying decision!

Re: Mileage and electricity/fuel usage

Assuming gas is $2.35 a gallon, total cost for us for those miles would have been around $162 - that's about half the cost of what it is for driving our 2004 XC90.

It's good to know the plug-in hybrid technology does net a savings!

Re: What is the usable battery capacity of the xc90 T8?

Usable is 6.7 kWh, so the battery pack likely won't discharge less than 20% or more than 80% of total capacity to try and increase longevity.

Re: The amber interior isn't really 'amber' in real life?

On a non-plugin-hybrid xc90 forum this is what someone had to say: "The amber interior doesn't look like it did in those early 'done up' photos but I've gotten nothing but compliments on my car and its interior, including the color. " I'd imagine the amber is the same on the plug-in hybrid...
