new Volvo S90 has been presented to the world just a few days ago. Just a few hours after we discovered that Volvo aims to revolutionize the propellant turbo with a technology called PowerPulse, of that my partner David I have already talked about. Rummaging in the official material supplied by Volvo we find the technical data and performance of the different engines that will be for sale. We start at 190 HP, and we will not stop until you get to the 407 HP version T8 Twin-Engine.
The weight of the lighter version of the Volvo S90 is 1,800 kg, The car measures 4,96 meters long.
The range of engines starts with the version D4. It mounts a 2.0 turbo Drive-E four-cylinder. A booster with turbo of two phases develops 190 HP at 4,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 400 Nm between 1,750 rpm and 2,500 rpm. This engine is associated only with a manual gearbox of six relations, propelling the front wheels. Their average consumption approved is 4.1 l/100 km, with carbon dioxide emissions of 109 g/km This mechanical combination makes the 0 to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds, with a top speed standing at 230 km/h.
After the D4, we have D5 only available with an automatic gearbox of eight relations and all-wheel drive. It is the engine that equips the technology PowerPulse, a tank of compressed air that virtually eliminates the lag of a turbo engine and reduces the consumption of media. This impeller develops 235 BHP at 4,000 rpm with a huge torque of 480 Nm between 1,750 rpm and to 2,250 rpm. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 7,3 seconds, with an average consumption approved of 5.1 l/100 km emissions of CO2 are 133 g/km
petrol engines are only available with an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive.
The range diesel ends here and starts in the power range of gasoline. The version of access is called T6, and is a version of high performance. It is not known if there will be a version T5 intermediate. The T6 equipped with an engine two liters supercharged by turbo, and compressor, which generates 320 HP to 5,700 rpm with a maximum torque of 400 Nm between 2.200 and the 5400 rpm. It has good performance: 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds, with an average consumption of encryption at 7.3 l/100 km emissions of CO2 are 169 g/km
On the upper point of the range is the version T8 Twin-Engine. It combines the engine of the version T6 with an engine power of 87 HP and 240 Nm of torque that powers the rear axle. It is a plug-in hybrid, which draws its energy from a battery located under the floor of the car, in a central position-longitudinal. It has about 45 km of autonomy in 100% electric, and the system develops a combined power of 407 BHP with maximum torque very considerable, of 640 Nm. Approves an average consumption of 1.9 l/100 km
