MANILA: In the quest of electrifying its local lineup, Volvo Philippines has launched a plug-in hybrid model of the luxury sedan S90 in the country. “This is our first step towards locally implementing Volvo’s global vision to have half of our global sales comprised of fully electric cars. Safer for the environment, better for everyone on the planet", said Volvo Philippines Marketing Head Christopher L. Yu on the launch.

The sedan takes not more than 5.1 seconds to do a 0-100 kmph run and tops out at 250 kmph. With an all-electric range of 46 to 50 km, the Volvo S90 plug-in hybrid can return a mileage of 43 kmpl. With the stepping stone set, Volvo will soon launch electrified versions of T6 and T8 as well. Also, the likes of S90, XC90, and XC60 featuring mild-hybrid tech will come out soon.
