Volvo-XC90-T8-Excellence

 

Volvo Auto India launched the first plug-In hybrid SUV in the country, the XC90 T8 Excellence. The Volvo XC90 T8 Excellence is priced at Rs 1.25 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi)  and based on the Swedish carmaker’s globally acclaimed XC90 SUV.

 

The XC90 T8 petrol engine is a no compromise equation of power and high fuel efficiency, coupled with low emissions in a four seat luxury SUV. The XC90 T8 is the world’s cleanest 7-seater SUV that delivers 49 g/km CO2 backed with an electric range of up to 40km which is more than the average run for most customers.

 

The Volvo XC90 T8 Excellence Plug-in hybrid powertrain offers three distinct driving modes – Pure, Hybrid and Power. The car is built on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). The 2.0 litre 4-cylinder petrol engine is both supercharged and turbocharged and delivers 320hp along with the electric motor delivering 87hp, the collective 407hp and 640 Nm of torque. With instant torque the SUV sprints from 0-100 kmph in 5.6 seconds.

 

The drive modes can be selected by a touch on the centre console:

 

Pure: In this mode, when the high-voltage battery is fully charged, it serves as the car’s sole energy source, powering the electric motor over the rear axle. The XC90 T8 has an all-electric range of up to 40km sufficient requirement for most customers daily, in the electric range the emission is zero. It also has regenerative braking system; this mode is super-efficient in the stop-and-go traffic of city environments. If more power is needed, the petrol combustion engine starts up automatically.

 

Hybrid: This is the default mode, suitable for everyday use. Here, the vehicle will automatically alternate between drawing power from the Drive-E engine and the electric motor to deliver the best overall fuel consumption and an unmatched segment best CO2 of 49g/km (European Cycle)

 

Power: Here, drivers get the combined performance of the combustion engine and the electric motor. The SUV takes advantage of the electric motor’s superior response and instant torque curve, while the combustion engine gets up to speed. This combination offers better torque at lower revs, equivalent to that of a large displacement engine like the V8. In power mode the priority is on performance and response.

 

The interiors of the XC90 T8 Excellence is embellished with extended leather-covered surfacing, finest quality Nappa leather upholstery and hand-crafted crystal glasses and gear-knob, from the famous Swedish glass maker Orrefors. The massage function in all the seats adds to the already comfortable ride and the glass behind the rear seat blocks the noise from outside and gives a serene experience. Designed meticulously, the battery is centrally in the tunnel of the car so that no boot space is lost.

 

XC90 Excellence passengers will experience an unparalleled surround sound with Bowers & Wilkins audio system that adds an extra speaker to its 19 speaker system, resulting in unrivalled high fidelity sound reproduction and surround effect.       

 

The XC90 T8 Excellence maintains the iconic designing of the standard XC90 with the arrow elegantly aligned with the diagonal slash across the grille. The Excellence comes with bright decor door cappings, dual integrated tail pipes with a panoramic sun roof with power operation, together with the T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer” DRL lights.

 

“The XC90 T8 Excellence sets industry benchmarks for environment friendly efficiency and emissions while enveloping customers in first-class Swedish luxury. It is not only a segment-first but India’s first plug-in hybrid SUV and we see a lot of interest from our more affluent customers, who prefer to experience ‘responsible’ luxury,” said Tom von Bonsdorff, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India.
