Volvo announced on Wednesday that the XC40 SUV is now available with the brand's new T5 Twin Engine hybrid system, in a move that officially electrifies the company's entire product range.
Every single model in the Volvo portfolio is optionally available as a plug-in hybrid - a first for the automobile manufacturing industry.
The XC40 is powered by a 180 hp 1.5-litre petrol engine paired with an 82hp electric motor which work together to generate an output of 262hp. The SUV can sprint from 0 to 100kph in 7.3 seconds.
The all-electric driving range provided by the 10.7kWh battery reaches up to 46km.
R-Design, R-Design Pro, Inscription, and Inscription Pro XC40 trims are available with the new hybrid powertrain. Volvo states that an all-electric version of the XC40 will join the range next year.
