2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge

2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge SUV

The 2022 Volvo XC90 is the biggest SUV in Volvo’s toolbox.  Add Electric to the mix and the XC90 Recharge is set to impress.  All of the newest Volvo’s with any kind of electric power are superbly fast and comfortable vehicles to drive.  The best safety features are present, and the look of the 2022 XC90 is both bold and elegant.

Spacious on the inside and impressively versatile, the big Volvo SUV happily accommodates a family and their active lifestyle.  While the kids are climbing into the cabin, you can have your arms full of stuff, sweep your foot under the rear bumper, and then the powered tailgate opens up for you so that you can place the armload of gear into the boot.  Once done, you move away, walk around and check if the kids are in safely, the boot closes by itself, and you’re soon driving off to your next destination.  Six-seater versions make access to the third row an absolute doddle, and the level of passenger space in the second and third row is huge.  Seven-seater versions also add a wodge of versatility into the mix, though the third row is more suitable for kids.

Of course, the rear seats, like the front seats, slide and recline for maximum versatility, cargo space and comfort.  Fold all of the rear seats down, and in the new Volvo XC90 Recharge you get a perfectly flat floor all the way through to the front seats.  Seven-seater models will boast 640 litres of cargo space behind the second row, when the third row are folded flat.  That is class leading and much more than in a rivalling BMW X5 Plug-In Hybrid.  Seating comfort in the Volvo is rated as some of the best, if not the best, in the business, and the car’s electronic adjustment is seamless for that perfect driving position.

Premium materials are used inside the 2022 Volvos, and the build quality in the XC90 Recharge interior is breath-taking.  The combination is such that you feel you really are driving something special, and that is just because you are.  Volvos are luxurious and lead the charge on modern cabin infotainment and features.  Rear seat passengers can enjoy TV screens set into the backs of the front seats, which double as mediums for movies and or computer gaming.  The 2022 XC90 is a moving hotspot for connecting devices up to the web.  USB, USC and wireless charging are all present.  Heated seats, leather or part leather interiors, zoned climate control throughout the cabin with individual controls all add up to making life in the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge SUV extremely likable.  The standard panoramic sunroof lets in plenty of natural light, adding to the big XC90 cabin ambience and feeling of spaciousness.

2022 Volvo XC90 Comfort

Safety is always taken seriously in a Volvo.  Some of the features you get today are active bending headlights, blind spot detection all around the big rig, Volvo’s Care Key which sets speed limits for inexperienced drivers who may use the car, and a maximum top speed of 180 km/h.  Should all else fail, the Volvo XC90 safety cage and structure is immensely strong and capable of absorbing and protecting its occupants in the event of a major impact.  That said, the amount of accident avoidance technology inside one of these is vast, so getting yourself into a big accident situation is way harder to do in a new Volvo than in many other cars on the road.

The 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge is a Plug-in Hybrid.  Turbocharging and supercharging is present with the 4-cylinder, 2.0-litre internal combustion engine (ICE). Then there is also an electric motor for a combined power output of 300 kW.  Pure Ecodrive is the mode for driving purely on electric power alone, perfect for inner-city errands, shopping trips, commuting to work, and school runs.  Head out on the highway or run out of battery power, and the ICE happily contributes.  Obviously, the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge can be topped up on arriving home so that you are good to go all electric in the morning.

The real world has a great way of levelling the lab-tested fuel economy figures.  But the ability to run on electric power around town is a big bonus.  Just how close you’ll get to factory claimed fuel economy figures depends entirely on how much you end up calling upon the petrol ICE in the real world.  Everybody’s drive is different, individual and unique.  You have 30 miles max or 48 km of pure electric driving before the Volvo XC90 Plug-in Hybrid will need a recharge of its battery pack, and this is when you’ll be running the on ICE power instead.

You can see why EVs are amazing inner-city cars where you’re only covering 20-odd km on your commute to work.  Thanks to its electric motors and sizeable battery packs, you can now drive a big SUV like the Volvo XC90 Recharge to go plenty of places in an Urban jungle environment without it having to drink any petrol at all, let alone emit CO2.

The latest Volvo XC90 Recharge model looks great, feels lovely to drive, is safe and delivers plenty of grunt.  Volvo’s flagship SUV runs with a smooth automatic gearbox and has 4WD traction.  What more could you want in a luxury SUV that caters perfectly to a family’s needs.
