Volvo UK recently introduced the R-Design trim of the all-new XC90 model, which in T8 version is a plug-in hybrid with a 9.2 kWh battery and an estimated 17 miles confirmed 14 miles of EPA range.   (0-12 of all-electric)

The XC90 T8 Twin Engine R-Design was presented at one of the shows in Bursting Blue, and is certainly one of the best looking Volvo trims out there in our opinion.

In the UK, the base price for R-Design is £49,785 ($75,000) OTR (On the Road), but the plug-in hybrid version starts at £63,355 ($95,500).

“Host of visual, dynamic and equipment upgrades
Key equipment includes 20-inch alloy wheels, leather sports seats and a 12.3-inch TFT information display
Available now, priced from £49,785

Volvo Car UK has launched a new R-Design version of its award-winning XC90. R-Design models are the sportiest XC90s to date, featuring a range of design, dynamic and equipment upgrades to give Volvo’s seven-seat SUV a sporty makeover.

The outside of the car is distinguished by 20-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, silver-effect door mirrors, gloss black mesh front grille and tinted rear windows. Inside, there are leather/nubuck sports seats, a 12.3-inch active TFT driver’s information display and a perforated leather-trimmed steering wheel complete with gearshift paddles. R-Design XC90s also get a powered front passenger seat with memory function (to match the driver’s seat), sports pedals, black headlining and upgraded interior lighting. There’s even an exclusive R-Design leather-clad remote key fob.

R-Design models come with Drive Mode Settings and Adjustable Steering Force as standard, too, which allow you to choose between different settings for the engine, transmission, steering and the optional air suspension.

This is on top of the already generous standard specification of entry-level XC90 Momentum models, which includes a nine-inch touch screen control system, Sensus Navigation, two-zone climate control with Volvo’s ground-breaking CleanZone air quality system, LED headlights, power-operated tailgate with handsfree opening, and the Volvo On Call mobile app. Standard safety equipment includes City Safety (which features pedestrian and cyclist detection, and front collision warning with full auto brake), driver alert control with lane departure warning, and front, side and full-length curtain airbags.”

Here are a few new photos of R-Design in RED (T5 ICE version), without charging inlet on the side.

    Volvo make great cars and the build quality is very good, however, some of those pics (the first one in Red particularly) make it look very much like my Outlander PHEV which has more electric mileage and is closer to half the price for the base model.

    Um, you guys know the EPA range is officially 0-13 miles right? First deliveries happened last week and an owner posted his sticker on the swedespeed forum.

      Thanks Chris, we had only seen the EPA estimated 17 miles from the company, gov’t site has yet to be updated (probably something to do with the holidays, lol)

      /fixed, appreciate the heads up!
