It has already been three years since Volvo SUV. The XC90 launched a new era for Volvo, helping the brand get back on par with the best luxury brand in the market. The that Volvo offers is the twin-engine T8 trim, which is a plug-in hybrid. In the 2017 XC90, the twin-charged engine and electric motor combine to produce a whopping 400 hp, which is miraculous for a 2.0-liter. For 2018, the XC90 will get even better thanks to an increased battery capacity.

According to , the 2018 XC90 will receive an increase in battery capacity from 9.2 kilowatt-hours to 10.4 kwh. With the larger battery, the car will now be able to travel 19 miles on electric power, which is an increase of five miles. The XC90 will also be more efficient when driving in hybrid mode. The 2017 model was able to achieve ratings of 54 mpge and 25 mpg combined. The new 2018 model will be able to achieve 62 mpge and 27 mpg combined.
