The immediate future of Volvo presents promising. The Swedish firm has started a second youth, who are in the Volvo XC90 a perfect standard bearer, but of course, plans do not remain only in the great SUV care details and next to the new platform SPA there will be a new platform under the designation CMA and with them hybridization to the entire range of models.
A new platform for models of higher dimensions, one for models of compact size… and all with at least one option hybrid in its catalogue:
Under the denomination T5 Twin Engine Volvo will offer a new generation of hybrid models, plug-in. In addition, as shown in the practical alternatives with this technology in the ranges of Volvo V60 and XC90
Volvo has presented us a new platform for their compact models. Been baptized as a Compact Modular Architecture, and will be in the streets in 2017, we imagine that with the successor to the Volvo V40. In addition, there are voices that point to a Volvo XC40 and a compact three-door, a Volvo C40, derived of this new generation of products.
In mechanical terms beyond of this new platform, we would be faced with the introduction of a new set of thrusters plug-in hybrids. As we have been counting since Volvo this new compact architecture is ready to share hybrid engines with the platform SPA, a platform which already has premiered a mechanical hybrid, plug-in the hand of the Volvo XC90.
Volvo XC90 T8 has already been commissioned to show a mechanical device where a block of 4 cylinders and 2 liters of cubicaje, petrol and supercharged by a turbo and a compressor has reached a total of 400 horsepower coupled to a hybrid scheme that allows the XC90 scroll up 40 km in all-electric mode.
Nor can we lose sight of the Volvo V60 D5 Twin Engine, a model that has a mechanical diesel that supported by the set plug-in hybrid develops a total of 230 horses.
We have a good mechanical gasoline hybrid, we have a thruster diesel hybrid more modest… and a few clear intentions, find us with a hybrid in every model in the range.Seen as seen in the Volvo XC90 we can go in thinking that this second youth is not laying anything wrong.
