Volvo’s rebirth has been led by this 2nd generation XC90; their first all-new car since the 2010 merger with Geely. I had my first taste of a T6 R-Design model last year and quickly understood the attraction. This time, I’ve got the one with a cord – a plug-in, gas-electric hybrid with more performance and MPGs. As fresh as some late summer lingonberries, the XC90 starts life anew for the Volvo brand; a 3-row, range-topping SUV steeped with Swedish flavor. Most will certainly choose one of the T5 or T6 gasoline-only models but a select few will be seduced by the warm and fuzzy feelings provided by an electrified version.
