Volvo: mild hybrid for everyone

Gradually, hybrid and electric variants are finding their way into all models of the Swedes

Volvo has announced that it will be offering its new mild hybrid system with a 48-volt electrical system in all model series in the future. The system was previously only available in the XC90 and XC60 SUVs, where it contributes 14 hp to the engine output and, depending on the engine, achieves a system output of up to 314 hp.

With the additionally available plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles, which are offered under the name "Recharge", there will be a wide range of electrified drives.

The mild hybrid variants can be recognized by an additional "B" in the model designation. Volvo promises to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to 15% under real driving conditions. The mild hybrid variants of the XC60 currently consume 7.7-9.0 liters of petrol or 6.1-7.2 liters of diesel per 100km, with the XC90 mild hybrids it is 8.7-10.0 liters of petrol or 8.7-10.0 liters 6.6-7.5 liters diesel (data according to WLTP).

S90 and V90 are refreshed

In addition, the Swedes are modernizing the sedan and station wagon of their 90 series for the 2021 model year. A new design of the fog lights and rear lights as well as the front bumper and the spoiler should also enhance both models.

Other innovations such as a new audio system from Bowers & Wilkins, an air cleaning system with a fine dust filter for the interior and wireless charging stations for smartphones will not only be available in the S90 and V90 from 2021, but also in the smaller 60 series and in the XC40.

The manufacturer has not yet announced prices and engine variants for the S90 and V90, with the XC60 there is an additional charge of at least 5650 francs for the mild hybrid compared to the petrol variant. The cheapest variant of the S90 currently costs 57,100 francs, so you can assume an approximate starting price of 63,000 francs for the cheapest mild hybrid variant.
