Last year, The XC40 became our first compact SUV. But how do you better the Fleet News New Company Car of the Year 2019? By going beneath the bonnet straight to its heart.
Introducing our new hybrid variant of the XC40 – arriving at the end of this year with added business benefits.
The XC40, just like everything we do here at Volvo, has always had a very clear purpose. In fact, when we brought it to the market last year, its mantra was all about simplicity: "Everything you need. Nothing you don't."
We designed our first-ever compact SUV to free drivers from the clutter of life – to give people more with less. And, with the introduction of our new Twin Engine variant, this philosophy rings truer than ever.
Because its clear purpose has now been joined by a clearer conscience too. With improved fuel efficiency and a lower carbon footprint, the T5 Twin Engine is both an economical and a sustainable choice, speaking volumes for your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) credentials.
Expect all of the same design elements and innovations that earned the XC40 its multiple awards in 2018 and 2019, because the difference is simply its source of power. And it's a difference that gives the added dual benefit of high performance and low emissions of just 46g/km of CO2.
Using technology from our other plug-in models, a combination of a 1.5 litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor delivers the best of both worlds – economy for your business plus power, torque and acceleration for your drivers. It's also a flexible choice, with four drive modes to choose from: Hybrid, Pure electric, Power and Off-road.
Our new generation of Twin Engines now also feature regenerative braking, which recovers energy when slowing the car down. This new technology reduces wear on brake pads and discs and has increased the Pure range of the electric motor to up to 28 miles.
The XC40 T5 Twin Engine gives employees a desirable vehicle whose lower emissions also mean their Benefit-in-Kind tax (BIK) is reduced.
And as petrol and diesel cars continue to be taxed heavily, a hybrid like our Twin Engine will mean you can benefit from incentives and low taxes.
When it comes to company finances, its Whole Life Costs and fuel costs are significantly lower than those of pure petrol or diesel.
In fact, the government campaign Go Ultra Low has found that charging a car like this can cost as little as 4p per mile – about a third of the cost of a conventionally fuelled car.
The XC40 is designed to make smarter use of its space – even with the necessary plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) battery under the floor. Every detail –from the battery's new proportions to its central placement – makes for a beautifully practical cabin and a well-balanced drive.
