2021 Volvo XC60 Recharge review

Safe, comfortable, electric – well, electric at least some of the time. The former two, the Volvo XC60 Recharge always is.

While the popular mid-sized SUV is available with traditional gasoline engines, it’s now also available as a Recharge model – which, in the XC60’s case, sees a traditional combustion engine married with a small battery that can be topped up by plugging it into a charging station, providing the option to drive as a full electric car.

The standard XC60 price starts at $41,700 / £40,460 (around AU$53,000), but prices for the plug-in hybrid Volvo XC60 Recharge start at a loftier $53,500 / £58,850 (around AU$68,000).
