The Volvo XC90 Hybrid, has received approval for the Government's Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) which is designed to offer incentives for buyers to choose new ultra-low carbon cars. In this scheme, buyers will receive a £5000 grant towards the purchase price of the vehicle.
In order to qualify for the grant, the vehicle must fulfil a number of conditions, such as battery warranty, crash safety, battery safety and also CO2 emissions. With quality, safety and the environment being strong brand values of the Volvo Cars Group, these were always on the project team's agenda.
The Hybrid drive mode is smooth, quiet and controlled. It's what I think most luxury buyers are looking for in a comfy SUV. Power mode transforms the SUV's performance dramatically.
The range-topping Twin Engine model carries the T8 badge and, says Volvo, is a "plug-in electric car, hybrid car and high-performance car rolled into one”. It uses a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine to power the front wheels and an 80bhp electric motor to drive the rear wheels.
The all-new XC90 is the most important car in Volvo's recent history and is already on sale in the UK.
