At the Beijing motor show Volvo presented a plug-in hybrid version of its smallest SUV Volvo XC40.

In contrary to the larger plug-in hybrid models, which are powered by the T8 Twin Engine powertrain, Volvo XC40 will have the T5 Twin Engine unit, which combines a 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine with electric motor.

Volvo has not yet released much data on the performance of the powertrain and the car, but we can conclude that the petrol engine, which is the same as that of the Volvo XC40 T3, will develop 115 kilowatts and electric motor will add 55 kilowatts to the equation. The battery will most likely have a capacity of 9.7 kilowatt hours. We can also expect Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine to have 40 to 50 kilometers of electric range.
