Cars' all-new XC90 will offer a great combination of power and clean operation
when it is launched late 2014. The all-wheel drive seven seater offers drivers
up to 400hp but with carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of around 60 g/km (NEDC
driving cycle). There has never been an SUV offering this level of power in
such a clean manner in terms of emissions.
According to Peter Mertens, Senior Vice
President Research and Development of Volvo Car Group, there are no compromises
when one drives the all-new XC90. He noted that in the past one could either
have power or low CO2 emissions. But with the all-new XC90 one can have both,
new XC90 offers a range of Drive-E engine options, all of which provide a great
combination of performance and fuel-efficiency. The main distinguishing feature
of the Drive-E engine range is that they are all four-cylinder engines.
Mertens mentioned that with the company’s new
Drive-E powertrains, it has created a family of intelligent petrol and diesel
engines with power curves that give exciting driveability at the same time as
delivering world-beating fuel economy. “With seven people in the new XC90,
carbon dioxide emissions per person and kilometre are outstandingly low,"
engines will over time be introduced across Volvo’s entire range.
