Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine R-Design

Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine R-Design

Volvo brought to Geneva its whole family of all-new XC90s.

Among the different versions we find the plug-in T8 Twin Engine (white) and even more interesting T8 Twin Engine R-Design (blue).

The 2015 Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid already got its R-Design tweak earlier, so it's not strange that XC90 sees this improved version too.

Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine is scheduled for launch in early 2016.

Quick specs:

  • 2-litre, 4-cylinder Drive-E engine on the front (318 hp and 400 Nm) with  8-speed automatic gearbox and electric motors on the rear (60 kW / 82 hp and  240 Nm)
  • 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 5.9 seconds
  • 9.2 kWh battery pack
  • over 40 km / 25 miles of all-electric range (NEDC)
In Europe, prices of Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine are already available - for example in Germany begins from 64,458 + VAT for Momentum trim, while R-Design and Inscription is just slightly more expensive at nearly 67,800. After including 19% VAT the price stands at 77-80 grands.

In Canada, prices are announced - $75,000 for Inscription and $73,400 for R-Design.

In the US, there is still no information on pricing, but Volvo promises it's coming stateside soon (in late 2015).  At what price?  We're not sure.
