Volvo plug-in hybrid technology

Introducing our Volvo Twin Engines

Otherwise known as plug-in hybrids or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

What is a plug-in hybrid?

A traditional combustion engine combined with a battery-powered electric motor.

How are they charged?

By being plugged in, or through regenerative braking whilst on the move.

Can they run solely on electric power?

Yes. For short journeys of up to 30 miles, dependent on the model.

Same car, smaller footprint

With CO2 emissions of 55g/km or less, our plug-in hybrids are a more conscientious choice. Over a 10 mile commute to work and back, you could save up to 46 bathtubs of CO2 every week compared to competitor petrol or diesel models.
