New Volvo XC40 T5 PHEV Offers 28 Miles of EV Range

Volvo has introduced a new plug-in hybrid version of the small XC40 luxury sport utility vehicle.

The new Volvo XC40 T5 PHEV was unveiled for the UK market today, and in the process became the first luxury entry-level SUV to offer a plug-in hybrid variant. For now, Volvo isn’t giving much info about plans for the new plug-in XC40 outside of the United Kingdom, but the Swedish automaker has said numerous times that their entire lineup will offer plug-in versions.

The current Volvo XC60 and XC90 offer T8 plug-in hybrid versions in North America. It wouldn’t be at all surprising, therefore, to see the Volvo XC40 T5 PHEV here some time in the near future.

The XC40 PHEV pairs a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engine with 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque to an electric motor adding an additional 80 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque. The overall power output is rated at 258 hp and the 10.7 kWh battery powering the electric motor is good for 28.6 miles, or 46 kilometres.

Volvo XC40 Lineup Will Get A Fully Electric Version This Year

Charging the XC40 PHEV will take roughly 3.5 hours on a Level 2 charger and 6 hours on a traditional power outlet. Pricing starts at just over 41,255 euros which equals about $60,000 in Canada. First deliveries are scheduled for next winter in the UK.
