Volvo unveils the plush and well intended XC90 SUV with an optional green motor!
There’s nothing as safe as a Volvo, not even a bomb shelter. Not entirely, but you can barely drive to work in a bomb shelter, right? Months after the unveiling of the Volvo Concept XC Coupe, the company has now shown off its latest entry in the automobile market, the production model of the 2015 XC90. For some reason, this car did remind us of Audi’s big daddy, the Q7, but that’s where the similarities end. The car borrows the T-Shaped LED lights from the concept, dubbed the “Thor’s Hammer” design. While the standard XC90 gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged engine with all-wheel drive making an impressive 316 horsepower, the XC90 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid also packs an electric motor, producing a total of 400hp!
That said, the interiors of this car don’t disappoint either. Volvo has managed to keep it classy, yet sporty with a well-sculpted dashboard, plus seats and an instrument cluster you’ll fall in love with. The car comes standard with luxury add-ons like a panoramic sunroof and satellite navigation. To buy one of these, make sure you’re packing at least $48,900, the base price of the XC90 T6 AWD. This vehicle is pretty darned awesome for all it’s worth, and we’re pretty convinced Volvo has taken the right steps with this release!
