For a limited period, the Volvo XC40 mild-hybrid is available at an introductory price of ₹43.20 lakh.

Volvo has launched its petrol-mild hybrid (MHEV) range of models today, with prices starting from ₹45.90 lakh for the XC40 facelift. However, for a limited period, it can be purchased at an introductory price of ₹43.20 lakh. The MHEV range also includes the XC60 (₹65.90 lakh), S90 (₹66.90 lakh), and the XC90 (₹94.90 lakh). All figures are ex-showroom. For now, Volvo has only shared the final specifications of the XC40 MHEV facelift and the XC90 MHEV.

Volvo XC40 MHEV Facelift

Launched in a single B4 Ultimate trim, the XC40 facelift has received updates on the outside, more equipment inside, and Volvo's latest petrol mild-hybrid powertrain, which comprises a 2.0-litre turbo engine and a 48V ISG motor. The power & torque figures are pegged at 194.3bhp and 300Nm, respectively. While the power has gone up a tad bit compared to the standard 2.0-litre petrol motor, the torque output remains the same. An eight-speed torque converter gearbox continues to send drive to the front wheels.

Unlike the pre-facelift model that was on sale exclusively in the R-Design trim, the MHEV facelift misses out on the same. As a result, the B4 Ultimate trim brings along simpler-looking five-spoke silver alloy wheels and monotone colour options, compared to the R-Design version's sportier two-tone paint scheme and larger 18-inch wheels. As far as design changes are concerned, the XC40 facelift comes with a refreshed fascia (redesigned headlamps and bumper).

Inside, barring a new wood trim on the dashboard and doors, the XC40 facelift continues with the same cabin. The infotainment system is now powered by Google's latest Android OS, which brings quite a few Google Apps to the system that we're used to seeing on our phones. Some other feature offerings on the XC40 facelift include wired Apple CarPlay connectivity, an air filter with a PM2.5 sensor, a 600W 14-speaker Harmon Kardon premium sound system, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking assist, pilot assist, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring.

Volvo XC90 MHEV

In the case of the XC90, Volvo has discontinued the previous 2.0-litre plug-in hybrid petrol variant for the 2.0-litre petrol mild-hybrid option (B6 Ultimate). In the XC90, the new powertrain develops a relatively lower power output of 296bhp and 420Nm of torque. The updated XC90 also gets the latest Android-powered infotainment system.
