Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2014

The all-new 2015 Volvo XC90 is preparing to make its official debut but several images already emerged on the Web ahead of the big event. Inspired by the Concept XC Coupe, the XC90 is company’s first brand new vehicle since it was bought by Geely, the well-known Chinese company.

Moreover, the XC90 is a crucial part of Volvo’s bid to offer more attractive cars in order to take on rival carmakers such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Set to lead the way for Geely-owned Volvo, the 2015 XC90 will arrive with a choice of three engines.

Volvo will offer a small D4 turbo diesel engine that will generate 190 hp and 400 Nm of torque, which promises a fuel consumption of 5 l/100 km. A D5 twin-turbo diesel engines will be available too, with 225 hp and 470 Nm of torque.

A more potent T6 turbo petrol engine with supercharger and turbo will arrive with 320 hp and 400 Nm of torque. In addition, Volvo will offer a T5 petrol engine that produces 254 hp and 35 Nm of torque.

The biggest surprise will be the XC90 plug-in hybrid model that will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine which sends the power to the front wheels, as well as an electric motor that develops 80 hp (60 kW) and sends the power to the rear wheels.

The total output delivered by the hybrid system found on the XC90 will be around 400 hp and 640 Nm of torque, with CO2 emissions limited to just 60 g/km (NEDC driving cycle).
