The Volvo Brand is committed to putting one million electric vehicles on the road by 2025, but that sort of change won't happen overnight. The team at Volvo understands that winning drivers throughout the greater Atlanta area over to owning a pure electric EV means getting them comfortable and invested with hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles first. That's why the Volvo engineering team recently went above and beyond to increase the all-electric driving range of its latest Volvo Recharge Plug-In Hybrid models, making them much more appealing for drivers from Kennesaw to Smyrna and all points in between.

The changes are coming to the T8 AWD Plug-In Hybrid, which ships with 60 and 90 Series models. These changes include the addition of a new long-range battery, which features a third layer of lithium ion cells. This allows properly equipped models to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 35 to 41 miles of all-electric driving range. And when you consider that most American drive just 39 miles a day on average, that makes it entirely possible to go about your entire daily commute without using a drop of gasoline in a properly equipped new Volvo Recharge Plug-In Hybrid car.

But it's not just efficiency that's been improved with these updates to the Volvo Brand's Plug-In Hybrid offerings. In addition, the T8 AWD features a new rear e-motor that improves power output by 65-percent, resulting in an overall horsepower output of 455 horsepower combined. This makes models like the Volvo XC60 Recharge and Volvo S90 Recharge feel much more dynamic in terms of off-the-line power, but it also enables one-pedal driving for a smoother and more efficient driving experience when you need it.
