As a Volvo dealership, Kempthorn Volvo Cars is situated at the forefront of Volvo Cars' innovations. And with Volvo Cars' commitment to splitting all sales between hybrid and all-electric vehicles by a coming date certain, new Volvo designs are now making their way onto the market.

Behold the all-new, Volvo Mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) design to feature prominently going forward and beyond.

What Does 'Mild Hybrid' Mean in a Volvo Model?

Volvo models are either powered through fuel, plug-in hybrid or pure-electric designs. With the addition of the Volvo mild-hybrid powering configuration, you're treated to a 48-volt battery harnessing and storing regenerative braking energy. This is then redistributed to the combustion engine for acceleration and a smoother drive all around.

Therefore, unlike Volvo Recharge plug-in hybrids, you'll never need a plugged-in charge of battery. Only drive, and that 48-volt battery is charged with all the braking that's done. As well, expect new Volvo Mild hybrid models of Volvo XC60, Volvo S60, Volvo S90 and Volvo V90 Cross Country to be less expensive than their plug-in hybrid and pure-electric brethren.

Will Federal Tax Credits Apply to Volvo Mild Hybrid Models?

Indeed, federal tax credits worth thousands of dollars may apply to your acquisition of Volvo Mild hybrid models. This may accompany state incentives in terms of rebate programs or other benefits. As well, certain states allow access to HOV lanes with only the hybrid driver present.

Each incentive, benefit and tax credit seeks to reduce our collective reliance on fossil fuels. And by this reduction, a cleaner environment is then enhanced.
