With something the car manufacturers install under the hood of Volvo CC90 T8, the car deserves as much attention as possible. But does it really produce zero emission like it claims?
Is it really true that the Volvo XC90 T8 the cleanest and also most powerful SUV? Well, we do not know what the review says, but at least that is what Volvo claims when they finally revealed all the details on the high tech SUV. The T8 is unlike its siblings, Volvo XC90 R-Design SUV as it is the plug in hybrid. It seems like many car manufacturers are so keen in creating plug in hybrids nowadays.
The Volvo CC90 T8 specs will include the combination of the two electric motors; the turbocharged Drive E four cylinder engine and Volvo’s supercharged. That is why this big SUV can run as it has the ICE to increase its power but without causing any driving emission. How many cars, even the plug in hybrid cars can claim that they produce zero emission?
The Volvo CC90 T8 release says that the XC90 T8 four cylinder Drive E petrol engine can produce 318 horsepower or 237 kW and 295 ft lb of torque to power the front wheels. Volvo even claims that the Drive E produces the same amount of power as the engine that is twice its size. This is because of the turbocharger as well as supercharger that have the ability to bolster the output.
The battery installed in the car can produce 65 kW or 87 horsepower. It is mounted centrally in the tunnel that can run down the middle of the car’s chassis. Even it seems like it may have some impact on the interior space, but the truth is that the car’s interior does not show any possible placement of the batteries. In the middle of the Volvo CC90 T8 engine and transmission, the car manufacturer has fitted the car with a CISG or crankshaft mounted starter generator. Sounds like an interesting car, does not it?
