Twin Engine


Performance without compromise

A new chapter in our story

At Volvo, we’re taking the lead with electrification in the auto industry. Our commitment to world-changing innovation and the demand for power, fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness will drive a broader range of hybrids and fully battery electric models. All designed to improve your life now and in the future.

The road ahead

Our dedication to electrification has been long-standing. Today, you can buy plug-in hybrid Volvo cars that offer the choice to run on gasoline or battery electric power. In the future, we’ll add even more powertrain options – including mild hybrids and battery electric vehicles.


High-performance T8 Plug-In Hybrid models are available across several body styles.


Every new Volvo introduced will be electrified – from mild hybrids that don’t require charging to battery electric vehicles that run on electricity alone.


Volvo Car Group will have five new fully battery electric vehicles in our lineup.


Volvo Car Group plans to have over one million electrified vehicles on the road.

Battery technology

Battery technology is advancing rapidly. It means that electric cars are now a viable and smart alternative to the internal combustion engine. We use Lithium-ion battery technology to power our Twin Engine cars. These batteries are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle.

Pure mode

When you drive your Twin Engine or Pure Electric Volvo in Pure mode you will immediately notice something different: it is remarkably quieter than a car powered by a combustion engine. You’ll also notice increased take-off performance thanks to the instantaneous delivery of pure power to the wheels.
