Volvo Cars’ introduce the world’s most powerful and cleanest SUV – the all-new XC90Back

VolvoXC90Volvo Cars’ all-new XC90 promises to offer customers an unrivaled combination of power and low fuel emissions when it launches into the UK market later this year.

The popular all-wheel drive seven seater car offers drivers up to 400bhp with carbon dioxide emissions as low as 60g/km (NEDS driving cycle), making it the first SUV ever to offer this level of power this cleanly.

“There are no compromises when you drive an all-new XC90,” said Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research and Development of Volvo Car Group. “In the past you could either have power or low CO2emissions. But with the all-new XC90 you can have both.”

The new XC90 achieves this combination from its range of Drive-E four cylinder engines, all of which provide an excellent combination of performance and fuel economy.

Dr Mertens added: “With our new Drive-E powertrains, we have created a family of intelligent petrol and diesel engines with power curves that give exciting driveability at the same time as delivering world-beating fuel economy.

“With seven people in the new XC90, carbon dioxide emissions per person and kilometre are outstandingly low.”

The CO2 performance on the new XC90 reinforces Volvo Cars’ industry leading figures monitored by European car industry association ACEA, which show the Group reduced average fleet emissions by 8.4 per cent from 2012 to 2013.

Volvo’s new Twin Engine technology known as Drive-E engines, are capable of providing all the pleasure associated with a larger engine, which remaining cleaner and more efficient, and Volvo has stated that over time they intend to introduce Drive-E engines across their entire range.

The all-new XC90 top of the range ‘Twin Engine’ will be known as the T8 and will be a plug-in electric car, hybrid car and high-performance car rolled into one. Normal driving can be conducted in default hybrid mode by utilising a two-litre, four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine that powers the front wheels and an 80 hp (60 kW) electric motor that drives the rear wheels.

At the push of a button the driver can switch to quiet, emission-free city driving on pure electric power where the range will be around 25 miles, and then, when needed, immediately revert back to the combined capacity of the petrol engine and electric motor, with its combined output of around 400 hp and 640 Nm of torque.
