T5/T6 vs B5/B6

As it stands, Ken Pollock Volvo Cars is in the midst of change when it comes to inventory.

Given this new Volvo production year encompassing innovations and updates, Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrains will soon replace existing, Volvo petrol-fired powertrains of T5/T6 distinction. This means all your favorite Volvo luxury SUVs, sedans and wagons will soon feature various levels of electrification, going forward.

The most convenient form of electrification by far is the Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrain having made its way into the following, 2022 Volvo models:

  • Volvo XC60 luxury SUVs
  • Volvo S90 and Volvo S60 luxury sedans
  • Volvo V90 Cross Country luxury wagons

How does the Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrain work?

The technology underpinning Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrains differs from those Volvo T-badged powertrains in that fuel is drawn only sparingly.

With Volvo T5/T6 powering, the Volvo 2L, four-cylinder combustion engine runs on fuel alone. This obviously creates issues for the environment given caustic emissions and the endless amount of cash spent on fueling and engine servicing.

Though, Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrains exhibit advancements encompassing the following details:

  • Breaking and acceleration expend much in energy and fuel, respectively
  • With spent braking energy, there's the ability to recapture and store within an onboard, 48V battery
  • When accelerating throughout the course of a drive that stored energy is then repurposed to power the combustion engine
  • By accentuating acceleration as such, fuel is kept in reserve, emissions released are reduced and cash is saved as a whole
  • As well, Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrains will never require a charge of any sort. Simply drive and brake accordingly

Ken Pollock Volvo Cars - Always Leading The Pack

Well before Volvo Mild Hybrid powertrains were introduced, Ken Pollock Volvo Cars offered Volvo Recharge models of plug-in hybrids and those pure-electric, Volvo XC40 Recharge SUVs - the flagship of Volvo Cars' efforts toward sustainability and environmental conservation.
