Volvo says XC90 T8 is selling at 2 times their projection, more PHEVs on the way

Mon Jun 13, 2016 11:32 pm

I just read an article saying that because so many XC90 plug-ins have sold, Volvo is planning more.

Cool! Glad they noticed my purchase, I love the T8!

Not surprising since car magazine gives it four and a half stars out of five for handling four and a half stars out of five for performance 5 stars out of 5 for usability and feel-good factor four and a half Stars

Autoweek has good reviews on this vehicle as well it's a 3-row plug-in hybrid SUV they call it gorgeous inside and out and jokingly refer to it as the Starship Enterprise:)

I was looking up this car today and I really like it. I have always been a Volvo fan and I know they cost a bit more but they have a good reputation. I did read about the lack of battery warranty compared to other vehicles or even models. For Volvo and Porsche their battery warranty is the lowest in comparison with all other phev models on the market. I feel very uncomfortable when manufacturers offer little in the way of warranties. If they are making a quality product what do they care if they have a long warranty - if the car is of good standards no one will claim on the warranty so the fact that Volvo has one of the worst warranties makes me hesitant to look into the XC90 any further. I posted this in a General Discussion thread but will also post the chart here as it is interesting
FACT #913: FEBRUARY 22, 2016 THE MOST COMMON WARRANTY FOR PLUG-IN VEHICLE BATTERIES IS 8 YEARS/100,000 MILES

For model year 2016, there are nine electric vehicles (EVs) and seven plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) that have battery warranties of 8 years/100,000 miles. Tesla warranties are also for 8 years, but with unlimited miles. Three manufacturers offer 10-year EV battery warranties, one of them with 100,000 miles and the others not specified. The shortest warranty time frames are for PHEVs by Volvo and Porsche, which are 7 years or less. California, however, has a mandated battery warranty period for partial zero emission vehicles (PZEV) sold in the state. Thus, models classified as PZEV sold in California have a 10-year/150,000-mile battery warranty.
