Understanding Volvo's Plug-in Hybrid System

While traditional hybrid drive systems don't give you the option to run on all-electric power, the Volvo T8 Plug-in Hybrid drivetrain behaves a bit differently. Rather than having the combustion engine and electric motors tied together, they run parallel to each other. This allows the electric motor to run independently without the combustion engine running. Switching drive modes will allow you to choose how your Volvo receives its power. Pure mode switches you to just the electric motor, so you can travel to and from work without spending a drop of fuel. Choose hybrid when you need to make the long drive from deep in Sonoma County to the Bay Area. Here you'll be blending both motors as efficiently as possible to reduce your fuel usage. When you want to get exuberant with the 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque available with the T8 Plug-in Hybrid, switch to Power mode. This unlocks the full potential of the powertrain so you can enjoy a high-performance driving experience.
