Volvo XC60 PHEV Competitive Comparison

The 2021 Volvo XC60 PHEV isn't competitive in only one area; she's competitive across the board. No compromises are necessary to lower your tailpipe emissions or even nullify them completely. Luxury, versatility, powerful performance, high-tech features, and much more all take your daily drive to the next level. How competitive is she? Let's find out.

Volvo XC60 Plug-In Hybrid Performance & Efficiency

Every new Volvo XC60 Recharge for sale packs a thrilling punch known as the T8 powertrain. She takes a high-performance turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine and combines it with an electric motor. With this layout, all-wheel-drive precision comes standard, and so does a 400 horsepower output. Several drive modes are available to customize the performance, enhance comfort, or optimize efficiency. Turn the performance up, and 0-60 mph can come in as little as 4.9 seconds, thanks to the instant torque.

With her battery designed to be compact and thoughtfully placed in the center, the Volvo XC60 Recharge handles turns with balanced poise like few other SUVs. Above all, though, this efficient hybrid system offers up to an EPA-estimated 57 MPGe1 on every new Volvo XC60 PHEV.

Volvo XC60 PHEV Electric Range & Easy Charging

She can also drive along with silent, pure electric grace, offering up to 19 miles1 of zero-emissions driving range. Recharging that range is as flexible as her practicality, as an advanced regenerative braking system along with the gasoline engine top up the charge as you tackle your daily commute or weekend road trip near Nashville. With a Level 1 and Level 2 charging-capable adapter, though, you can recharge the range using a regular household power outlet.

Volvo XC60 Hybrid Tax Credits & Everyday Benefits in Brentwood, TN

Compare the Volvo XC40 and the Tesla Model 3, and you'll notice that these all-electric rides offer great incentives. So do plug-in hybrids like the Volvo XC60 Recharge, and with the purchase of one, you'll be eligible for federal tax credits of up to $5,4192 to make ownership even more attractive.

While fuel-sipping efficiency offers savings, you'll also save time during your grocery runs and daily commutes. That's because the Volvo XC60 Recharge qualifies for HOV lane access across many states. Better still, she also can offer access to prioritized parking for hybrid and electric vehicles. Please confirm your local regulations first.

With the Volvo Cars app, you can warm up or cool down her interior, activate the heated or cooled seats, and more from your smartphone without emitting any tailpipe emissions. It's yet another way the Volvo XC60 PHEV prioritizes your everyday comfort.

Volvo XC60 PHEV Warranty

Enjoy peace of mind with the eight-year/100,000-mile (whichever comes first) Volvo Plug-In Hybrid warranty, covering the hybrid battery and hybrid system components.
