Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||4h15m||3 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||2h45m||5 mph|

All about the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine
No longer available
This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine was available from October 2014 until June 2019. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine.
The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine had a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £61,900 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £62,570. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine is 288 kW (386 hp). The maximum torque is 472 lb-ft. The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.8 seconds. The top speed is 143 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine has a total capacity of 10.4 kWh. The usable capacity is 8 kWh (estimate). A range of about 14 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 10 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 20 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 2 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 4 hours 15 minutes.
Rapid charging is not possible.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine is about 570 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 71 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 800 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 400 Wh per mile.
The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 524 mi, of which about 14 of fully electric range. Please note that, even when driving in full-electric mode, the internal combustion engine may kick in under high loads.
When the battery is empty or 'hold charge' mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 33 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, the fuel consumption is about 1.7 over a 15 mile trip , 55 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 42 mpg over a 60 mile trip.
The combined average consumption of petrol of the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine will therefor depend on the average trip distance and whether the car is charged before each trip. Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of 113 mpg and a range of 669 mi are irrelevant in practice.
While driving in full-electric mode, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine will not emit any CO2. When the battery is empty, or if the engine load is high, the internal combustion engine will be used. As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, the average CO2 emssions of a Volvo XC90 T8 Twin-Engine will depend greatly on several key factors that determine fuel consumption. Note: CO2 emissions are calculated per kilometre.
When driving using only the petrol engine, CO2 emissions will be around 200 grams of CO2 per kilometre on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly.
CO2 Emissions will drop to 40 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 120 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 160 g/km on a 60 mile trip. This only includes tailpipe CO2 emissions. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels. The offical figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for CO2 emissions of 56 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
