Default re: Volvo imports XC90 Excellence with 2.0L petrol (407 BHP)!

I like when small engines flaunt such big HP numbers and take down engines twice its size

An example of 2L 4 cyl which sounded really good was the CLA 45 AMG, lets hope this also has a good engine/exhaust note

Is it really 29 lakhs? Regular X90 costs 80 lakhs +. I think it is a mistake.

The 2.0 ltr engine gives around 330 HP.

As per the top gear review here, it is producing 320hp from the engine and 80 odd hp from the electric motor.
Apologies! The Volvo US website was bit ambiguous. Volvo Sweden website clears it up.

Correct power specifications are:

2.0 Litre 4-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine capable of 320 HP @ 5700 RPM and 400 Nm @ 2200 - 5400 RPM which drives the front wheels. Electrical motors assist with additional 87 HP and 240 Nm of torque by driving rear wheels. Thus, a combined power rating of 407 HP.

The recently imported XC90 T8 Twin engine has indeed been brought in the Excellence trim for homologation, as indicated on Volvo India official website.

Excellence is the epitome as far as luxury is concerned and the most expensive Volvo yet. Excerpt from press release:

Quote:
With just four seats instead of seven the additional space is utilized to offer a First Class automotive experience that begins with broad, spacious individual reclining rear seats complete with massage, ventilation and increased leg room, as well as a retractable control touchscreen, folding tables, a refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a heating/cooling cup holder and handmade crystal glasses from leading Swedish glass design company, Orrefors.

The presence of Nappa leather and open-pore wood, a signature of the XC90 Inscription, is expanded throughout the interior while a partition isolates the passenger space from the cargo area. This ensures an ultra-quiet environment to enjoy the 20-speaker, 1400-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

The Volvo XC90 Excellence is uncompromising in luxury, safety and its environmental footprint. The vehicle is offered exclusively with Volvo's 400 horsepower, T8 Twin-Engine Plug-in Hybrid Electric powertrain with an Orrefors crystal gear shifter.

On the outside, the Excellence distinguishes itself from the rest of the variants with chrome B and C-pillars and an “Excellence rank mark”.

Volvo XC90 T8 launched, priced at Rs 1.25 crore.
Range-topping XC90 Excellence gets Volvo’s twin-engine plug-in hybrid tech and a segment unique four-seater layout.

Quote:
Volvo has launched its first hybrid vehicle in India, the XC90 T8 SUV. Priced at Rs 1.25 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi), the XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid comes in only the top-spec Excellence trim.
With its hybrid engine and four-seater layout, the T8 edition has no direct rivals unlike its standard siblings that compete against SUVs like the Mercedes GLS, BMW X5 and the Audi Q7.

Quote:
The XC90 Twin Engine is powered by a 320hp 2.0-litre, turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine. The engine powers the front wheels that combines with an 87hp electric motor driving the rear wheels to bring a total output to 407hp. There is also a 25hp starter motor/generator between the petrol engine and gearbox, which helps smoothen the transition between the different drive modes and fill any torque gaps. Volvo claims an all-electric range of 40km for its petrol-hybrid SUV.
