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 XC-60 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 5h15m 3 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 3h15m 6 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 3h15m 6 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 3h15m 6 mph

All about the Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine

Pricing

The Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £54,350 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £55,005. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine is 288 kW (386 hp). The maximum torque is 472 lb-ft. The Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine is all wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds. The top speed is 143 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine has a total capacity of 11.6 kWh. The usable capacity is 9.9 kWh (estimate). A range of about 18 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 12 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 25 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 3 hours 15 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 5 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is not possible.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine is about 550 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 74 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 825 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 395 Wh per mile.

Fuel Consumption

The Volvo XC-60 T8 Twin-Engine has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 596 mi, of which about 18 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 38 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, no fuel is consumed over a 15 mile trip and fuel consumption is about 74 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 50 mpg over a 60 mile trip.

The combined average consumption of petrol of the Volvo XC-60 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 149 mpg and a range of 753 mi are irrelevant in practice.

CO2 Emission

While driving in full-electric mode, the Volvo XC-60 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 XC-60 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 176 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 0 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 89 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 131 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 43 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
