With plenty of space, and technology that makes driving easier, the XC90 T8 Twin Engine is the plug-in hybrid without compromise. It’s because the XC90 was designed from the start to use a plug-in hybrid powertrain, so the batteries and electric motor don’t compromise space. Charging the battery is as easy as plugging it into the mains, but the powerful petrol engine means you can keep going even without an electric top-up. Predictive Efficiency technology plans your journey using the ‘electronic horizon’ feature of Sensus Navigation, so the battery lasts the length of the journey.
We designed and built the cabin of the XC90 with the best of Scandinavian design and Swedish craftsmanship. Clean, uncluttered design gives a feeling of calm that helps you relax. Scandinavian details delight the senses, such as the Flame Birch wooden inlays and the Orrefors crystal glass gear shifter for the T8 Twin Engine.
The centre display with touch screen is at the heart of how you control many of the functions in the XC90. Sleek and responsive, it uses bold, clear graphics and a portrait format that makes reading information and maps easy, with less scrolling. The 9-inch touch screen is so responsive that you can use it wearing gloves, while the surface has a special coating that reduces glare.
Your XC90 looks out for potential danger, helping to protect both those people in the car and those outside, day and night. We call this innovation City Safety and it uses radar and camera technology to identify potential hazards such as other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals ahead. It warns the driver if it detects an imminent collision and, if they don’t react in time, City Safety can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision.
