Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid Steals More Than Just the Show

What do you get when you put one Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid on a special charging station next to a Californian highway and let the energy of passing cars charge it up? One good prank, that’s what. Check out this innovative and fun stunt from Volvo that shows just how different the XC90 T8 Hybrid truly is.

While the video above is fun, we probably won’t see that kind of technology charging our vehicles any time soon. It does illustrate just how much energy is out there, waiting to be harnessed, however, and it lets people know that a hybrid electric vehicle doesn’t need to be small, it can be a big, beautiful, hybrid SUV, just like the XC90 T8.

“The all-new Volvo XC90 T8 proves that great power can come from anywhere, from traditional engines to electric motors, and beyond. Highway Robbery is yet another way we are able to showcase our thinking not just about our cars, but how they can affect the world around them. We’re posing big questions as we seek out new, fresh ways about how and where we can enable the future of driving.” –John Militello, Director of Marketing, Volvo Car USA

The face of automotive mobility is changing as the demand for alternative fuel rises, despite the lack of pressure from the gas pump. Alternative fuels are great for more than saving money at the pump, though; they also produce fewer emissions, leaving us all a cleaner, greener world. If you’re looking for a great new SUV and always thought you couldn’t “go green” because of it, come see us here at Don Beyer Volvo of Dulles and all the Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid to change your mind.
