We’re going to tell you exactly what that name mean and what the car is like off of a 1940 Xc40 Volvo is the first manufacturer to offer a plug-in hybrid version of every call it currently sells diesel electric 360.
Which one of the first-of-its-kind to be commercially available in Europe this xc40 is different from other plug in Hybrid models in Volvo has an electric motor that drives the red Wheels but this xc40 has an electric motor attached to a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox making it the only difference between.
This car and the rest of the xc40 lineup is this charging port at the front Xc40 plug-in hybrid has the same size as the rest of my life so having a battery doesn’t remove any space in the back here we have a meeting with a fitted you can stop the charging cables around it and without it even more Space Storage to overrule you going to fit more luggage into this xc40 plug-in plug-in hybrid SUV Royals like the annex just what the boot passenger space is unchanged in this plug-in hybrid version of the xc40 compared to the rest of the lineup so that means there is a very good amount of space excellent.
Headroom very very good legroom to it’s just the same as the rest of the xc40 don’t know which means that interior quality is a real strength of the car so you got these really nice squishy Plastics on the dashboard and they look expensive generally it just feels really solid no matter what you can parrots eat loads of kit that comes.
With this car too because you can only get it on the pretty expensive and sweaty sporty all design and all his own private rent but I supposed to see exactly what this hardware systems like and also to see whether it’s worth it over a regular xc40 well the xc40 plug-in hybrid get a 1.5 liter petrol engine which is from the T 3 version for an electric motor.
When you start the car because enough charge in the battery and it will move off using just electric power line when it does it’s exactly what you’d expect smooth quiet. Quick because it’s only a 1800 kg SUV then when you floor the accelerator the pet Ranch and then the pace and not transition from Electric power to Petco power smooth than what you get in the Foxhole grandland X and in the Persian 3008 plug-in hybrids because those can be quite Sharingan in the quiet smooth terrain Electric and turquoise loud rough draft petrol engines were here to 3 cylinder petrol always feels pretty noisy hushed.
When you can hear it go pretty North and you know very impressed with this new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox you have femurs which when you put it in it and list of the accelerator it increases the effect of regenerative braking so it was slow to call down without you having to use the brakes and it will use the energy credits for not to replenish the battery in some other cars you can increase the impact of regenerative braking Sony xb40 the power steering wheel just trying to guess I should expect today you can ship it to the right but again not just shipped you off again and down to get increasing the regenerative braking another helpful addition you get on the xc40 plug-in hybrid is on this display hear you have a dial that shows you when you’re using electric power and then when you cross over into petrol have an on the infotainment system if you swallow a cross to this very confusing we laid out core functions menu then you have a charge function of the battery charging up the battery option.
Which will be hot as you can then use electric power later if you want to lyrics E-40 gets a 10.7 kilowatt hour battery is fully charged you can get an official electric 28.6% around 6 hours from a three-pin plug for you can draw time down to 2.5 hours if you go to the option of a type II cable which from a wood box will charge into a stingy risk losing both but especially because the steering is very light so it’s accurate but the lightness what generates means that it feels quite erratic so going through a series of quick Corners doesn’t refill.
Because it generates so actually you better off just slowing things down and enjoying the pretty sharp edged imperfections in the road cast of Royale But it seems particularly pronounced in this is very good it just feels quite inconsistent she never really know how much force you’re having to put in the stock smooth so when you judge plug-in hybrids and
How good they are into categories usually favor plug-in hybrid hybrid and electric cars that have low or no CO2 emissions however if you are private because just like every other plug in hybrid it has a very high list price so whether the electric ability of this car is really worth it will be able to charge.
