MAY 17, 2015
Bottom line, subjectively, Volvo has set a high bar for the coming crop of full-size luxury plug-in hybrid SUVs, from design to performance. The 3-row, 7-seat SUV weighs 5,059 lbs (2,295 kg) in its PHEV version (4,627 lbs/2,099 kg conventional), yet delivers the performance, handling and feel of a smaller luxury sporty sedan, even up and down twisty canyon roads. Luxury plug-in hybrid SUVs coming to US market. In 1999, Ford acquired Volvo as part of its Premier Auto Group.
