A traditional combustion engine supported by a small electric motor. Our mild-hybrids are recharged by collecting wasted energy through regenerative braking – so you don’t have to plug them in. 15% more fuel efficient. 15% lower emissions.
Otherwise known as plug-in hybrids or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). A plug-in hybrid is a traditional combustion engine combined with a battery-powered electric motor. They can be charged by being plugged in, or through regenerative braking whilst on the move.
A vision of electrification
By 2025: 50% of our new cars will be fully electric, we will have one million electrified Volvo cars on the road and aim to achieve climate-neutral manufacturing operations.
