The Volvo XC60 T8 Twin Engine has a plug-in hybrid powertrain that provides responsive performance. The combination of a four-cylinder petrol engine driving the front wheels and an electric motor driving the rear wheels gives performance that's a match for many sports cars. The result is strong, smooth acceleration from standstill. And, if necessary, on-demand all-wheel drive ensures power is transferred as effectively as possible to the road.
A range of drive modes allows you to adapt the XC60 T8 Twin Engine to your needs. Pure mode provides enough electric-only power for the average daily commute. It means you emit zero emissions and travel in near-silent luxury. In Power mode the turbocharged, supercharged petrol engine and powerful electric motor work together to give an instantaneous response when you accelerate. Default Hybrid mode chooses between the petrol engine, electric motor or a combination of the two, to ensure your journey is as smooth and efficient as possible.
Pilot Assist helps make driving in heavy traffic less tiring. This semi-autonomous drive technology keeps a set speed and distance to the vehicle in front of you, and uses steering inputs to keep you in the centre of your lane. Pilot Assist works at speeds up to 130km/h, helping to reduce the effort required when driving on busy highways.
City Safety is a Volvo Cars innovation that spots potential danger, and helps you avoid it. It uses radar and camera technology to identify other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals ahead, day or night. It warns you if it detects an imminent collision and, if you don’t react in time, City Safety can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision. In the XC60, City Safety includes Steering Support, which helps you to steer away from danger as effectively and safely as possible.
