Volvo PHEV SUVs, Volvo BEV SUVs, Volvo MHEV SUVs & the Alphabet Soup of Electrification

Volvo Cars has set an initial goal to have at least half of its sales include electrified vehicles by 2025. So how does Volvo Cars stack the odds in its favor toward meeting that goal? Ensure that all new Volvo vehicles will be electrified in some shape or form. Many reading this know that electrified vehicles have been on the road for 20 years now. Mainly as hybrids. But what to make of all these new variants such as mild-hybrids (MHEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), and fully electric vehicles (EVs). Is there a difference? Is one better than the other? Let's clear up some of the terminology:

  • Hybrid Vehicles - This type of electric vehicle is the fork in the road for the rest of the electrified vehicle family tree. These vehicles offered a tandem battery/internal combustion engine that was self-charging. Both power sources aided in propulsion.

  • Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles - As the name might suggest, any Volvo plug-in hybrid SUV, car, or wagon offers external charging. A unique advantage with this type of electrified vehicle is that you can drive them as you would a conventional hybrid vehicle or switch on-demand to fully electric mode. The average pure electric range for a Volvo plug-in hybrid SUV, car, or wagon, is about 20 miles.1 And to simplify, we commonly refer to our PHEVs as "hybrids." If external charging isn't available, your gas engine will take over without any required input from you once your battery is depleted.

  • Mild Hybrid Vehicles - This type of electrified vehicle is not to be confused with a conventional hybrid. A conventional hybrid vehicle uses combustion and electricity to move the vehicle forward. In a mild hybrid vehicle, electrification is applied to the engine exclusively. This technology reduces strain and load on the engine, which allows for smooth acceleration, increased performance, and improved mpg.

  • Battery Electric Vehicles - Is a bit of an old-school way of saying EV (or electric vehicle). BEVs and EVs are one and the same. Neither makes use of an internal combustion engine and is fully electrified. Self-charging occurs through regenerative braking, but this action prolongs battery life. It doesn't recharge the battery fully. External charging will always be required.

Volvo Hybrid SUVs. Ownership FAQs, Up Close & Personal

No matter where you live, electrification is easier than ever. The national network of charging stations is growing all the time. Considering the fact that all Volvo electric SUVs, cars, and wagons are fast-charge ready, you can be on your way again before you finish that sandwich and stretch your legs afterward. Let's take a look at some more EV and PHEV ownership details:

Spoiler alert! Free charging is available everywhere!

Search the internet for "free EV charging near me," wherever you are. Chances are you'll find plenty of public charging stations that offer you free charging. When's the last time you found a free gas station?

Currently, the Volvo XC40 Recharge is the only fully electrified Volvo SUV. That said, the all-new Volvo C40 Recharge SUV is available to reserve right now, and the flagship Volvo XC90 will see an all-electric trim for the 2022 model year.

In a sense, all of them will be hybrids as all models will implement mild-hybrid technology. But current Volvo hybrid SUVs with plug-in capabilities are the Volvo XC60 and Volvo XC90 only.

Yes! Reservations can be made right now for the all-new Volvo C40 Recharge, one of our latest Volvo electric SUVs. Keep your eyes peeled in 2022, as the Volvo XC90 will also offer a fully electrified trim.

BEV is another way to describe a fully electrified vehicle or EV. You can use those initialisms interchangeably. PHEV stands for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and indicates the vehicle's ability to be charged from an external source.

Currently, the Volvo XC40 Recharge is rated at 402 horsepower. If you look at PHEV models from our in-house performance division, you can see other electrified models topping out at 415 horsepower.

They sure can! When properly equipped, the Volvo XC40 Recharge can tow up to 3,307 lbs. Other Volvo hybrid SUVs can tow up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped. Either of these capacities should be enough for a trailer, small watercraft, campers, or ATVs.

The current price for the fully electric Volvo XC40 Recharge has an MSRP starting at $55,300.2 Pricing of forthcoming other Volvo electric SUVs in the same size class (like the Volvo C40 Recharge) are comparable.

You can take home one of our Volvo hybrid SUVs for an MSRP starting at as little as $54,250.2 You'll enjoy a wide range of seating configurations, exceptional standard equipment, and lavish comfort options.

Someone please describe Level 1, 2, and 3 charging for me. Simply.

Okay, no problem! In short, Level 1 charging happens at home or the office from a conventional wall plug. Level 2 charging is the most common type of public charging while out and about. Charging capabilities are faster. Level 2 chargers are also available to install at home at a nominal cost through our preferred charge partner ChargePoint and Qmerit. Level 3 charging is the fastest type of charging and is not compatible with any Volvo vehicle at this time.
