Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid Steals the Show, Onlookers Steal Glances

As a means of getting the word out about its awesome SUV Hybrid, Volvo trolled other automakers on a California highway with a machine that captures the kinetic energy produced by vehicles driving over a special panel, it them takes this energy and turns it into harvestable electric energy used to power the Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid. Crime has never looked so fun—probably because no actual laws were broken.

While we probably won’t see a charging station quite like the one in the video above, Volvo is definitely pushing the limit on what’s possible with respect to harnessing energy, and it’s getting the word out about its powerful hybrid SUV at the same time. Alternative fuels aren’t just for small, compact cars any longer.

“The all-new Volvo XC90 T8 proves that great power can come from anywhere, from traditional engines to electric motors, and beyond. Highway Robbery is yet another way we are able to showcase our thinking not just about our cars, but how they can affect the world around them. We’re posing big questions as we seek out new, fresh ways about how and where we can enable the future of driving.” –John Militello, Director of Marketing, Volvo Car USA

If you were interested in Volvo’s Highway Robbery stunt, you’ll probably want to come see Don Beyer Volvo of Falls Church, located on 1231 West Broad St. Falls Church. When you’re in, be sure to go for a test drive in the Volvo XC90 T8 Hybrid so you can experience what it feels like to drive a powerful hybrid SUV.
