Volvo T8 Orders, Delivery dates, etc

Hi all, welcome to the xc90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid forum!

I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on the forum for everyone to share their order details?

Ordered in November 2014, and was told delivery would happen in Spring 2016... so we're getting closer!

Re: OK - can't get car to accept charge

Hi nborelli, welcome to the forum! Here is the charging indicator information straight from Volvo. Last night you said you got a green light? Did you mean blue? And was it blinking or on solid? http://support.volvocars.com/SiteCollectionImages/Voice/18/img18144da87814e8a6c0a8015229a11b83_1_--_--_VOI...

Re: Cross shop Tesla Model X with XC90 T8 PHEV?

Here are some other thoughts to add to the mix: T8 pure-electric range only 25 miles, Model X is 250 miles EPA, so obviously at the heart of the issue is how far you want to travel on electric power, and how far you typically drive. Also is the fact of whether or not you travel along routes with sup...

Re: EPA estimated range of 17 miles

Once we start getting these into our hands we'll be able to see what kind of range we can really get.

We don't know yet what portion of the battery pack is usable vs the total capacity of the battery pack...

Does xc90 plug-in recharge battery with ICE?

I don't know if anyone has this information yet because the vehicle isn't for sale.... yet :)

The Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid can recharge the battery pack full from the internal combustion engine, and I'm wondering if the T8 can do the same thing?

First decent look at the XC90 T8 PHEV (imo)

https://youtu.be/WYNYiJO-LHU I'm not overly impressed with the combination of range and price available at this pricepoint. You can get a $90K Porsche Cayenne for not too much more, and with a bit of a discount could end up at the same pricepoint. The big advantage of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid is that ...

Re: 2016 Volvo XC90 T8 PHEV comes with free TurboCord

I've been saying for quite some time that EV manufacturers need to start including a 120v and 240v portable charger (EVSE) with the vehicles, otherwise it's up to the buyer to research and learn in order to get the most flexible charging options.
