To incentivise reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption, we are offering all our customers free electricity for an entire year with the purchase of a new Volvo plug-in hybrid. Your cash reimbursement will be calculated based on the kilowatt hours used while driving on electricity, from May 2020 till May 2021. The amount will be based off the average consumer price of electricity in the UK.- Valid for orders placed from 16th October 2019 and 6 months ahead.
You can track how much electricity you have used, how far you have travelled in electric mode and much more within the Volvo On Call app and you will receive your cashback via the app.
Volvo On Call is also a tool that gives you the ability to remotely start the engine of your vehicle, track journeys, lock and unlock your car and most importantly will automatically call Volvo's emergency line in a collision situation or when the SOS button is pressed by an occupant.

A petrol or Diesel car may cost you between 12p - 21p per mile on fuel. Getting used to routeenly charging your hybrid car gives you daily savings - particulally on short commutes, like your morning trip to work or the school run.

PHEV stands for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. This means the car has a battery capable of powering the car solely from the battery, the combustion engine or both at the same time. The Volvo T8 engines are all plug in hybrids available to buy new or used.
Driving a hybrid Volvo is an experience; 0-60 mph can be done in as little as 4.2 seconds (S60). The transfer from the electric power to liquid fuel is seamless, charge can be restored from braking and reserved when requested.
The Volvo XC90 T8 has been awarded the Whatcar? Plug-in Hybrid car of the year 2019. Yet another one for the XC90's shelf of awards!
Book a test drive today, we have a range of PHEVs charged and ready to go.
An advanced kinetic energy recovery braking system, coupled with an existing internal combustion engine create a new electrified powertrain, known as a mild hybrid.
These cars store energy that would usually be lost when braking and use it to power a 48-volt battery that supports the load on the diesel engine, thus reducing emissions when setting off.
Auto engine start stop is a much smoother process with this technology along with a more linear power delivery and are a less expensive alternative to a full PHEV
