Volvo XC40 gets three-cylinder powertrain; hybrid and EV versions to come

Volvo XC40 gets three-cylinder powertrain; hybrid and EV versions to come A raft of new powertrains are heading to Volvo's smallest SUV; full-electric model will have an expected 310-mile range

Volvo has introduced its first three-cylinder engine, which will arrive in the XC40 ahead of plug-in hybrid and full-electric variants. 

The 1.5-litre unit, badged T3, follows the brand’s four-cylinder Drive-E engines of recent years. It gets a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with an eight-speed automatic available from 2019. Volvo expects the T3 to make up around 10% of XC40 sales. 

The first XC40 customers will receive their cars in March, while deliveries of the T3-engined vehicle start in the summer. T3-engined XC40s are priced from £27,905. Performance, economy and emissions figures are yet to be released.

Volvo announced that the engine is the basis for its XC40 plug-in hybrid, which will bear the company’s Twin Engine branding for the electrified version, due at the end of the year.
