Volvo XC90 Hybrid SUV Gains Sports Car Like Power

Precision crafted automobiles have been the mainstay of the Volvo product line out of Sweden since 1927.  Evolution and engineering expertise over the past 89 years have provided the manufacturer to release the Volvo XC90 T8 sports utility vehicle.  This twin engine hybrid provides the most available horsepower with the lowest emissions of any other products on their line.  This has been completed by a completely redesigned generation of Polestar optimization.

This new generation of power plant technology provides a split of 400 and 87 horsepower between gasoline and electric.  The combination creates an allowance for the acceleration rate of zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kph) in a remarkable five and a half seconds.   The 2 liter turbo and supercharged twin engine provides an amazing 472 lb.-ft. of torque that assists with this amazing acceleration. While the horsepower is impressive, the fuel economy on the vehicle provides for approximately 27 miles per gallon highway and 24 miles per gallon city.  You can also travel just over twenty six miles on pure electric power.

Horsepower and performance are not the only improvements with the next generation of Polestar optimization.  Four other aspects are directly affected providing a highly distinguished driving experience.  The areas that were targeted for improvement by the engineers are speed, precision, throttle response, and gearshift hold.  Gearshift hold ensures that the vehicle does not change gears during high speed turns with large amounts of lateral g-forces.  Shifting the gears in these environments can make the vehicle unstable as it transitions from one gear to another.  Additional stability is provided by the all-wheel drive powered by the impressive power plant.

Specifications and refined engineering is rarely found in a sports utility vehicle that can carry up to seven passengers.  To find out more information about the Volvo XC90 T8 SUV visit a Volvo dealer such as Patrick Volvo.
