Plug-In Volvo XC60 T8 Enters U.S. Next Month With 10.4 kWh Battery

•, by Mark Kane

The car is based on the company's SPA vehicle architecture, first used in the 90 series (XC90 and S90). Production of the XC60 actually began in mid-April at the Torslanda Plant in Sweden, but initially for only conventional ICE version…which no one cares about.

The plug-in hybrid T8 is to be available in the U.S. from September in three trim levels (which are over $11,000 more expensive than base T5 ICE). So we look forward to adding it to our, ever more crowded, monthly plug-in sales report for the US.

Prices (base MSRP / after $995 destination and $5,002 federal tax credit):

Momentum: $52,900 / $48,893 

R-Design: $56,200 / $52,193

Inscription: $56,700 / $52,693

Whereas, the XC90 T8 starts at $67,800 / $64,210 (incl. $995 and $4,585 tax credit).

The XC 60 T8 Twin Engine version of the SUV is top of the line with 407 hp system output and 5.3 seconds time 0-62 mph (100 km/h).
