Volvo launches new petrol mild hybrid XC90

Volvo Car India on November 11 launched its flagship luxury SUV, the new XC90 with a completely new petrol mild-hybrid engine.

Coming close on the heels of the October launch of petrol mild-hybrids Volvo S90 and Volvo XC60, the launch completes the company’s commitment of transition from diesel to petrol cars, said a press release.

The new petrol mild-hybrid Volvo XC90, a seven-seat SUV, is priced at Rs. 89,90,000 (ex-showroom).

The XC90 was the first car to be launched on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), Volvo’s advanced modular and state-of-the-art product platform that features in all Volvo cars in the 90 and 60 Series.

“With the launch of the New XC90, we have launched three new petrol mild-hybrid models this quarter. The confidence reposed by the customer in our brand has given us the conviction to offer them technology loaded new models,” said Mr. Jyoti Malhotra, Managing Director, Volvo Car India.

The advanced technology in XC90 enables the driver to have personalised comfort and mobility setting. Head-up display allows the driver to watch speed, follow turn-by-turn navigation, answer phone calls and more. All come without losing focus on the road, said the company release.

The XC90 has an intuitive touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment applications.

It comes with a latest Advanced Air Cleaner technology that has a sensor to measure PM 2.5 levels inside the cabin.

In the cabin, XC90 provides a luxury mobility environment with a blend of high-end material such as wood, crystal and metal in a sophisticated Scandinavian design.
