The 2021 Volvo XC60 Recharge proves a good thing can be made even better with added electric power. Under the hood of this plug-in hybrid SUV is a supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which works in cooperation with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. All told, the XC60 Recharge has a combined output of 400 horsepower, or more than enough to give this Swedish sport utility the moves to counter hybridized rivals such as the Audi Q5 e and BMW X3 xDrive30e.
True to its Volvo heritage, the XC60 also comes with a comfortable cabin and impressive list of standard safety features. While battery packs and electric motors often take a bite out of cabin room and trunk space, that’s not the case here. During our time with the XC60 Recharge, we were impressed by its performance, fuel economy and driving dynamics.
