The Volvo XC90 car is a high-end offering showcasing a new modular platform and exciting styling.

The XC90 comes in five powetrain options, one of them being a twin engine hybrid. This version is equipped with a best-of-its-range twin-engine T8 hybrid powertrain comprising a 2-liter, four cylinder Drive-E engine combined with an 80 horsepower electric motor that engages the rear wheels. The powertrain produces about 400 horsepower and an impressive 472 pounds-feet of torque. The electric motor allows the vehicle to travel 40 km on pure electric power, allowing urban drivers to get where they're going without any tailpipe emissions.

Volvo hopes that the XC90 car's top-notch combination of style, safety, economy and power will be enough to help it stand out in the luxury car market. Volvo hasn't revealed any details about pricing just yet, but the car is expected to go on sale in early 2015.
