The Volvo XC90 is powered by a T8 plug-in hybrid engine like before. It works on a 2.0-litre supercharged petrol and turbocharged engine attached to an electric motor generating a peak power of 400PS and a peak torque of 640Nm. The engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and runs on the four-wheel drive.
