Volvo’s all-new 2015 XC90 arrived at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, wearing a black exterior finish which highlights the new T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer” LED daytime running lights. Set to go on sales next year with a price tag of $48,900, the 2015 Volvo XC90 is the first new product since the company was acquired by Geely.

It will be offered with a T6 turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine that generates 320 hp (239 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. A less powerful T5 petrol engine with 254 hp (189 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque, will be available too.

Still, the big surprise is the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid version that carries a 2.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine which powers the front wheels, as well as an electric motor with 80 hp that moves the rear wheels.

The total output delivered by the hybrid engine is 400 hp (298 kW) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft). Just like any other hybrid vehicle, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine Plug-In Hybrid offers an all-electric range of up to 20 miles or 40 km.

For diesel fans, Volvo’s XC90 is available with a twin-turbodiesel D5 engine that delivers 225 hp (168 kW) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft). This engine promises a fuel economy of 39.2 US mpg or 6 l/100 km.

A less powerful D4 diesel engine with 190 hp (142 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) is available too, promises a fuel consumption of 56.5 US mpg or 5 l/100 km.
