Volvo was able to lower the values again for the final consumption tests of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine. At the same time, the power of the plug-in hybrid SUV has been increased again.

A consumption of 2.5 liters was previously expected. “We have worked hard to give our customers the ultimate combination of great performance and low fuel consumption. Thanks to the twin engine technology, we can develop efficient drives in a completely new way, said Head of Development Peter Mertens.
