The Volvo T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD: Exceptional Efficiency and Exhilarating Performance

Ushering in the next generation of hybrid technology, Volvo proves that efficiency doesn't necessitate the loss of performance--rather, that the integration of advanced and innovative hybrid technology dramatically improves the overall performance, while delivering a lower operation cost due to the decreased gas consumption. With three 2018 Volvo models available with the top-trim T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD, regardless of whether you're seeking a spacious SUV or svelte sedan, rest assured Volvo's commitment to imbuing their vehicles with innovative and experience enhancing hybrid technology.

The Technology

Richly enhanced with performance improving hybrid technology and an all-wheel drive configuration, the plug-in hybrid exceeds expectations with ease. While most hybrid vehicles pair their electronic system with a standard engine, Volvo finely tuned the inline four-cylinder engine prior to incorporating the electric motor and enhanced battery to amend the performance. Through "twin charging" the gas engine by adding both a turbocharger and supercharger, the T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD vehicles receive exceptional torque and horsepower before any hybrid technology enters the engine bay. Through the incorporation of an advanced lithium battery and an electric motor, an additional 87 horsepower amends the already impressive engine yield, bringing the total engine specifications to a gigantic 472 pound-feet and 400 horsepower.

In addition to the T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD's immense torque and horsepower ratings, the vehicle also provides improved fuel efficiency over standard trim levels. Committed to not only providing drivers with improved efficiency, Volvo also adheres to the strictest emission classifications, resulting in a ULEV II (Ultra-Low-Emissions Vehicle) rating. With selectable driving modes tailored to suit your preferred driving style and selectable, electronically-engaged all-wheel drive functionality for increased performance and traction, the T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD delivers superior customization through convenient and intuitive systems. Further increasing the allure of the T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD, these vehicles are eligible for a federal tax credit of $5,002, and potentially additional local and state tax incentives to deliver a return on your investment in more than just an increase in smiles per mile.

Available Models

The 2018 model year marks the advent of three T8 Plug-in Hybrid eAWD available models. With two sleek SUVs and a luxurious sedan equipped with this exceptional technology, commuters and family daily drivers both receive the exciting experience of owning and driving these efficient and capable vehicles.

  • Volvo XC60

Available in three trim levels, the Momentum, R-Design and Inscription trims, the XC60 T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid provides an additional degree of Scandinavian sophistication to the already-exceptional 2018 XC60. Awarded the 2018 World Car of the Year and 2018 North American Utility Vehicle of the Yearâ„¢, the Volvo XC60 delivers interior comfort, style, safety, and technological integration befitting of luxury vehicles of the highest echelons. The Momentum trim sets the standard for exceptional as the available base trim, incorporating all essential features to deliver a powerful and stylish yet affordable option. The R-Design trim, however, features a redesigned exterior and additional features to further solidify the sporty nature of the S60 through performance-inspired accents pervading the interior and exterior design. Finally, the Inscription trim--delivering the utmost luxury and sophistication, the Inscription trim ensures optimal comfort, convenience, and style are delivered in droves. Equipped with the latest in advanced and innovative technologies to deliver a superior driving experience that's uniquely Volvo, the Inscription trim offers performance and poise for the intrepid driver.

  • Volvo XC90

Serving as larger variant of the XC60, the Volvo XC90 provides additional seating, cargo capacity, and subsequently a marginally higher price tag. However, while the XC60 only offers three trims equipped with the advanced hybrid technology, the XC90 offers an additional trim, packed with every available luxury-imbuing option dubbed the "Excellence" trim, nearly doubling the base trim cost but resulting in an unprecedented degree of luxury and performance within a Volvo. Much like the XC60, the XC90 also features a twin-charged, direct-injected engine amended by the 87 horsepower electric motor. The T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid models, as with the XC60, are available in the three typical Volvo trims: the base Momentum, performance-inspired R-Design, and luxurious Inscription. If seeking additional cargo capacity and a spacious yet comfortable interior, the Volvo XC90 precisely fits your desires.

  • Volvo S90

Outfitted with the same drivetrain technology as outlined above, the Volvo S90 incorporates outstanding power and performance capabilities within a smaller, sleek sedan. Weighing sufficiently less than its SUV brethren, the Volvo S90 delivers nimble handling and a driving experience more suited for commuting in cities than the full-sized XC90. Available as either the T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid Momentum trim or the T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid Inscription trim, the 2018 Volvo S90 does not offer an R-Design model as available on the SUV variants.

The T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid Models: Exacting and Exhilarating

While the aforementioned models offer gasoline-only options, the additional tax credits received in conjunction with the significantly enhanced efficiency of the T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid models reveal these vehicles as contenders worthy of consideration. Conjoining legendary Volvo reliability with Scandinavian sophistication, the T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid delivers heightened performance, luxury, and peace of mind through thoughtful design and careful attention to detail both within the cabin and engine bay.
