Volvo's plug-in hybrid


By Mark Hinchliffe
Volvo hybrid

Vovlo' plug-in hybrid.

Volvo ReCharge Concept is also fitted with high-efficiency tyres developed by Michelin.

It is designed to distribute electrical power to the individual motors at each wheel.

For a 150km drive starting with a full charge, the car will require less than 2.8 litres of fuel, giving the car an effective fuel economy of 1.9l/100km.

Volvo claims the electric motor at each wheel gives even weight distribution as well as mechanical efficiency and maximised traction through all-wheel drive.
