Volvo have added a second electrified model to the XC40 compact SUV range.

The new XC40 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid T4 combines a 129bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine, an 82hp electric motor, and a 10.7kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which allied with a seven-speed automatic transmission gives a fuel economy up to 134.mpg.  It has an official CO2 emissions figure of just 47g/km, but can cover up to 27 miles on electric power alone.

First UK deliveries of the XC40 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid T4 are expected in October, with prices starting from £39,130 on-the-road for the R-Design specification and £39,475 for the Inscription model.  Both are available to order now at Volvo retailers.
