Volvo Plug-In Hybrid models: Some basics on how they work

At MAG Volvo Cars Dublin in Dublin, OH, we know the terms "hybrid" and "plug-in hybrid" (or "PHEV") can be confusing, so let's start with the basic hybrid concept. A standard hybrid is a combination of a gasoline-powered engine and at least one electric motor. The standard hybrid gets recharged by the gas engine and from power created by the brakes - a system called "regenerative braking." The more you brake, the more it recharges.

A plug-in hybrid gets its power from outside the car

Instead of relying on internal systems to recharge the battery in a Volvo plug-in hybrid, you can simply plug it in to a wall outlet and allow your Volvo to re-charge. Obviously, you'll need to allow enough time to re-charge before driving. Charging times can be considerable although fast-charging is an option. Drivers in Columbus and New Albany, OH should note that fast-charging creates heat which can stress a battery more than AC charging.

Which Volvo models are PHEV?

Volvo plug-in hybrids include the Volvo XC60 Recharge PHEV that seats five and the Volvo XC90 Recharge PHEV that seats either six or seven depending on the configuration. Other Volvo PHEVs: The S60 Recharge sedan, the Volvo S90 Recharge sedan and the Volvo V60 Recharge wagon. Volvo PHEV models provide you with multiple driving modes that allow you to customize your drive as you travel around Upper Arlington or Hilliard, OH

A major benefit of a plug-in hybrid is that, when the battery runs out of juice, you can continue driving thanks to the gasoline-powered engine on board. Refilling that gas engine is much easier and faster than recharging an electric battery thanks to the abundance of gas stations and the fact that a gas fill-up takes minutes instead of hours.
