A higher-capacity battery and more potent rear electric motor boost power and range in Volvo’s plug-in hybrid SUVs, due in Australia in early 2022.
Volvo has announced updates to plug-in hybrid versions of its 60 Series and 90 Series cars and SUVs – with the upgrades due in Australia early next year as the 2022 Volvo XC60 Recharge and 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge.
The XC60 and XC90 Recharge plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) – along with Volvo’s wider 60 and 90 Series ranges in Europe – benefit from a larger, more energy dense battery pack offering 18.8kWh of capacity (up from 11.6kWh), and a more powerful rear electric motor now developing 107kW (up from 65kW).
