A Volvo plug-in hybrid could come with a year’s free electricity thanks to a new offer from the manufacturer.

Any private or business customer buying a new Volvo plug-in hybrid between now and the end of June 2020 will be eligible for the offer.  Volvo will monitor usage via the Volvo On Call app and refund the cost of the electricity consumed after 12 months.

The new offer applies to Volvo’s entire plug-in hybrid line up, including the new XC40 T5 plug-in hybrid premium compact SUV.  It has a 180bhp petrol engine and an 82bhp electric motor, offering official fuel economy of up to 141.1mpg and CO2 emissions from just 38g/km.

The free electricity scheme is that latest part of Volvo’s plans to substantially cut the carbon footprint of all its new cars.  It aims to achieve a cut of 40% between 2018 and 2025, and to become a climate-neutral business by 2040.  Cleaner, electrified powertrains should see overall tailpipe emissions halve by 2025.

Full details can be found at Volvo retailers.
