As alternative-energy-powered vehicles become more prominent in the automotive industry, Volvo continues to lead the way with innovative electric and hybrid sedans and crossovers. Volvo's foray into the world of reduced-emissions began in 2013 with the launch of the Volvo V60 PHEV wagon. Today, Volvo has expanded its plug-in hybrid offerings across its lineup, and its first fully electric model is just around the corner. Here's a quick look at what to expect for the 2021 model year.

To maintain the continuity of its initiatives going forward, Volvo has renamed its highly regarded T8 powertrain to Recharge. Available on S60 and S90 sedans and XC60 and XC90 SUVs, the Recharge powertrain features a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor and battery pack. This prodigious powerplant generates 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque, and offers 18 to 22 miles of all-electric range depending on the model.

One of Volvo's most prominent goals is to evolve its lineup to 50-percent electric vehicles by 2025. Just a few months away, Volvo will take the first major step towards that goal with the launch of its first-ever fully electric model, the Volvo XC40 Recharge. This exciting new subcompact crossover replaces the turbocharged two-liter engine with two electric motors, one for each axle, and a 75 kW battery pack. In addition to an emissions-free range of more than 200 models, the XC40 Recharge also boasts incredible power gains, generating 408 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque and achieving an impressive zero-to-60 time of 4.7 seconds. Volvo also states that with a 150-kW D/C fast charger, the battery can be filled 80-percent in just 40 minutes.
