Plug-in hybrid cars

Electric cars with a back-up plan.

Plug in to uncompromised performance.

Volvo plug-in hybrid cars offer a more refined drive without compromise. We’ve combined an enhanced electric motor for everyday city driving with a high-performance gas engine for longer trips and extra power when you need it.
Electric cars with a backup plan

We want to create a confident and seamless transition to the fully electric future of driving. So, we designed our plug-in hybrids to offer enough electric range to power your daily commute and city driving.

Power on command

Our next-generation powertrains deliver powerful, responsive handling with smooth, quiet acceleration. The added capacity of a high-performance gas engine gives you rapid, strong acceleration when you need it.

One Pedal Drive

Smoothly navigate stop-and-go traffic with One Pedal Drive. This lets you accelerate and brake just by applying and releasing pressure on the accelerator pedal. Your car will then convert the kinetic energy generated from braking into battery power.

Five modes to tailor your drive.*

Switch between drive modes at the touch of a button. The electric motor and gas engine are designed to work together in perfect harmony for seamless hybrid performance.

Smarter charging.

We want your hybrid car to fit in seamlessly with your daily routine, so we've evolved our range of battery features to make charging simpler, faster, and easier.

Volvo charging
Ready when you are

Schedule your plug-in hybrid to charge overnight so it’s ready for you in the morning. Our next-generation batteries can replenish their energy to 100 % in as little as five hours with our 3.7kW 1-phase onboard charger.*

Pre-set comfort

Choose the interior cabin climate as the battery charges, and your car will adjust to that temperature by the time you’re ready to go. Pre-climatization while charging also improves the battery performance on the road.

Charge on the go

Boost your battery range and fuel economy as you drive with regenerative braking. We’ve engineered our electric motors and energy-dense batteries so you can get an extra charge from the energy created and stored when you brake.

*Charging times can vary and are dependent on factors such as outdoor temperature, battery temperature, charging equipment, battery condition and car condition.

Designed for effortless efficiency.

Reduced tailpipe emissions

Access a more considerate drive with the combined long-range electric battery and fuel-efficient gas engine delivering reduced CO₂ emissions compared to gas-powered equivalents.

Optimize for the journey ahead

Set your destination in the navigation system for longer trips in Hybrid mode, and the car will use both the electric motor and gas engine in the most energy-efficient way for your selected route.

Cost-efficient charging

Where applicable, plug in and schedule overnight charging at home through the Volvo Cars app to take advantage of lower energy rates and help reduce your running costs.

Connect to the future of driving

Our fully electric cars offer emissions-free driving without compromising range and power. Explore the benefits of Volvo fully electric cars.
