Under the Hybrid Hood

Each hybrid vehicle shares a couple of common elements under the hood, and they all work together. More specifically, an electric motor assists a conventional engine to more efficiently use the energy that's created. The electric motor reduces how much gas is used by the traditional engine component and can even keep everything rolling while the gasoline engine turns off completely. The battery-powered electric motor is charged during regenerative braking: it converts kinetic energy into electricity as you come to a stop. This energy goes to waste in conventional vehicles, and, therefore, hybrid models have superior fuel economy.

In conventional hybrids, those batteries cannot be recharged otherwise. But both the BMW X3 PHEV vs. Volvo XC60 hybrid are plug-in hybrids, meaning you can charge that electric battery through a power source in addition to regenerative braking.

Because these models can run solely on electricity, you're able to take care of all your local responsibilities without ever spending a penny at the pump. Install a home charger and begin each day on a full tank. Depending on how fast your preferred model charges and your equipment, you can come home for a quick afternoon bite and simultaneously top your vehicle up to the max.

Enjoy an EPA-estimated2 57 MPGe fuel economy on the Volvo XC60 Recharge. Take your favorite passengers to faraway fun without fail. Did we mention it goes up to an estimated 19 miles on purely electric power?2 Not so bad for an SUV that seats five with an electric all-wheel-drive. If you have visions of a gleaming white Volvo vehicle gliding past gas stations without stopping, it's probably just the Volvo XC60 Recharge hybrid passing you by.

Every BMW plug-in hybrid comes with an occasional use cable, which allows you to charge in any outlet, as well as charging cables for fast-charging stations. The X3 can zoom up to 60 mph from a standstill in just under six seconds, thanks to a 288 hp engine, which can take you anywhere for an estimated 17 miles on solely electric power.2

Available luxury interior options like Nappa leather and adjustable front seats make your cabin comfortable.

FAQs About the BMW X3 PHEV vs. Volvo XC60 Hybrid

Here are some questions we hear all the time on our lot in Cary.

What is a BMW X3 PHEV?

BMW's newest plug-in hybrid SUV is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that drives using all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission with excellent acceleration and precise control. It has plenty of legroom for the little limbs that are always growing and offers an informative driver information display, which helps keep your eyes where you need them to be.

How does the BMW PHEV work?

As we mentioned above, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) uses the dynamic duo of a combustion engine and an electric motor. PHEVs separate themselves from conventional hybrids because PHEV models are able to recharge their batteries whenever you wish, in addition to recharging via regenerative braking.
