The 2022 Volvo XC60 Mild Hybrid at Merrimack St. Volvo

2022 Volvo XC60 Mild Hybrid Inventory

You cannot miss the 2022 Volvo XC60 Mild Hybrid at Merrimack St. Volvo in Manchester. Our showroom near Bedford, NH are filled with these relatively new world-class machines. A mild hybrid motor vehicle is a car that has an internal combustion engine that is fitted with an electric machine to allow the engine to be shut down whenever the vehicle is braking or stopping. A mild hybrid vehicle may use regenerative braking to aid the internal combustion engine, yet they do not have a purely electric propulsion mode.

Since the mild hybrid design does not support increased levels of regenerative braking, it greatly aids in saving fuel while driving around Derry and Londonderry, NH compared to a full hybrid. The electrified parts of a powertrain in the mild hybrid cannot drive the wheels; hence the engine does all the work. A mild hybrid electric motor can only aid the engine but cannot independently drive the vehicle, while the full hybrid's motor can power the vehicle alone.

When comparing the full hybrid and the mild hybrid, the mild hybrid is more efficient as it is cheaper to manufacture and has smaller batteries that are rechargeable by regenerative braking. Although this rechargeable method can be seen in some full hybrids, it is common in the mild hybrid. A drive around Merrimack is enough to recharge the batteries.

Capability

The 2022 Volvo XC60 Mild Hybrid was designed with a unique drive system that utilizes electricity stored in batteries as well as an electric motor drawing energy from the battery pack, according to Autoblog. In this system, both gas and hybrid engines are powered by regular unleaded gasoline that can be bought from any service station available today. However, the main difference between this hybrid model is that it does not have large packs of heavy batteries or bulky machinery installed underneath its hood as some hybrid models do. Instead, everything needed is housed in the spare tire wheel well. It can also be seen as a step in the right direction for Volvo, which offers some of the cleanest driving options possible with multiple hybrid models already in production.

Performance

Moreover, the 2022 XC60 has an electric motor bolted onto its 3-liter turbocharged I5 engine instead of having batteries installed underneath it like traditional hybrids. According to Autoblog, performance-wise, this vehicle can go from 0-60 mph in just 5 seconds while delivering up to 31 mpg when running gas-only power along with a mild electric boost.

Technology

The 2022 Volvo XC60 Mild Hybrid is also said to have a 9-inch infotainment screen, which can be paired to an iPhone or Android device. It will also be packed with other state-of-the-art technology that includes lane-keeping assist and driver awareness alert systems for when the inventory starts hitting streets in 2018.

AutoBlog reports that analysts have predicted this model to have a starting price of around $45,000 while having three tiers available for buyers depending on their individual preferences. These include base, T5, and top-of-line T8 trims, including all options currently available on the market today. The inventory will also come with semi-autonomous capabilities to match speed to traffic conditions, stay in its lane, and brake itself to avoid a collision.
