Volvo Cars Mild Hybrid System Review

The days of purely gas-powered vehicles are long gone for Volvo Cars, thanks to the Volvo mild hybrid engine system. In this brand's pursuit of an all-electric vehicle lineup, Volvo mild hybrid cars and SUVs are the new standard.

This advancement is an integration of modern technology and acute engineering. However, these new cars don't sacrifice an inch of the quality or luxury that you know and love from Volvo Cars. Read on to learn more about the Volvo mild hybrid powertrain.

What Is the Volvo Mild Hybrid System?

In pursuit of a more eco-friendly future, every new Volvo car in our lineup has at least a mild hybrid system. The Volvo mild hybrid engine system comes with a 48V battery and an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) that supports the combustion engine for reduced tailpipe emissions. With this system, each time you press on the brake, your battery will be fed with recovered braking energy, which ultimately saves gas. This increase in Volvo mild hybrid fuel efficiency can stop you from spending as much time and money at the pump.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Volvo mild hybrid the same as Volvo Recharge?

Volvo Cars has mild hybrid vehicles that use regenerative braking to recapture energy. This increases fuel economy in cars that still rely heavily on gasoline engines. This brand also has PHEVs called “Recharge.” Plug-in Recharge vehicles use electricity and gas and are generally more efficient than mild hybrids. They must be charged. There are also fully electric Recharge models. Visit us for more about Volvo Recharge vehicles.

What is the difference between Volvo mild hybrid and full-hybrid?

Mild hybrid vehicles have a 48V battery and an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) to reduce their emissions. They utilize regenerative braking to regain the energy that would otherwise be lost during braking to make their mostly gas-powered cars more fuel efficient. Full hybrids use a greater balance of electricity and gasoline during your commutes, which typically gives them better fuel economy.
