On the “60” and “90” ranges, the plug-in hybrid models have a new 6.4 kWh on-board charger (three-phase), which reduces the charging time compared to the previous model of 3.4 kWh (single-phase). As an accessory, a Type 2 Mode 3 32A three-phase charging cable, 6 meters long, is now available: this is also compatible with 100% electric models.
the sedan Volvo S60 abandons the B3 micro-hybrid petrol engine, and now offers the entry-level B4 micro-hybrid petrol engine. The SUV Volvo XC60 abandons the B5 AWD micro-hybrid diesel engine. For its part, the station wagon Volvo V60 is available with B3 and B4 micro-hybrid petrol engines, a Recharge T6 AWD plug-in hybrid version, as well as a Recharge T8 AWD version on the Polestar Engineered finish.
