Volvo's electric technology
VOLVO MILD-HYBRIDS, PLUG-IN HYBRIDS & PURE ELECTRIC
As a brand, investing in advanced hybrid and electric technology is a key focus in the development of the Volvo range. The Volvo line-up currently consists of a range of mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, as well as the latest pure electric XC40 Recharge - the first fully electric Volvo SUV. Mild-hybrid models - also known as Volvo "B" engines - offer lower emissions and improved fuel efficiency, without the need to plug in. Plug-in hybrids - also known as Twin engines in the Volvo line-up - offer excellent range, low emissions, and the option to drive in pure electric mode. Pure electric, such as the new XC40 Recharge, offer zero-emissions driving with simple and quick charging options.
