Volvo Drive-E Technology Marries Efficiency with Performance

While there aren't a lot of models featuring them just yet, the Volvo Drive-E powertrains are expected to completely revolutionize the way that Indianapolis, IN customers view the environmental friendliness of Volvo automobiles. Everything from the materials used in Volvo autos to the manufacturing process to the vehicles themselves have green tech in mind, and the 2017 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid is a terrific example of the strides this Drive-E technology has helped the automaker make.

In fact, the Drive-E range includes some of the most powerful four-cylinder engines in the industry today. In using supercharging and turbocharging, these models are able to generate more power from smaller, more efficient engines, keeping the vehicle responsive on the road while being friendly at the pump. The aforementioned Volvo XC90, for example, can boost from 0-to-62 mph in just 5.9 seconds, so there's no compromise in power despite the greener engine.

That clean efficiency means a lot things, not the least of which is the impact on your wallet. More miles per gallon means fewer trips to the gas station, so between keeping that money in your pocket where it belongs and making sure the vehicles still are incredibly fun to drive, it's no wonder that this Drive-E tech has been so lauded and adored by Indianapolis Volvo drivers so far.
