Re: PHEV off road?

I believe the T5 plug in uses a version of the T3 1.5 engine but producing 178 BHP and decent low down torque too. So plenty of power even when the battery is depleted. 262 is the total combined power output. The battery will never be completely depleted (there's always a bit reserved) and you'll a...

Re: PHEV off road?

Hi SteveHansard, I agree with blastpipe on AWD. I didn't properly tested the car on extreme off-road conditions but I guess it would do just fine, depending on how muddy is the track :) About BHP, don't worry about it, even when your battery is drained the electric motor will keep on going. You'll a...

Re: T5 Twin Engine Delivery

Hi guys,

received mine on April 3rd :)
what a lovely thing to drive. Not that many kms on it but I was very impressed with how the car handles for such a heavy car, the power and the tech features. It's such a great place to be in.

Looking forward to logging more miles!

Cheers

Re: Electrical socket installation

Hello lfpcorreia, I was finding this a bit strange at least. Glad you sorted it out! Mine is already in PT, dealer said that he asked for a plate already and I should have news during this week. I'm not 100% sure that I will get the car this week due to the covid19 outbreak but lets see. I'll keep y...

Re: Electrical socket installation

Hello lfpcorreia, I'm in a similar situation and the only thing that I've done was to install a socket near my parking spot and pull the power from my storage room. Nobody told me about changing the distribution board... nevertheless, the building is quite recent (2015) so I believe the electrical s...

Re: T5 Twin Engine Delivery

Don’t count on it. The Ghent factory will be shutdown tomorrow so I would say you have already a 1 month delay, best case scenario. I was hoping to get mine next week but that won’t happen for sure.. like blisteringblue said, it’s just a car and there are more important things to worry about. Stay s...

Re: T5 Twin Engine Delivery

Great news VolvoNL! I was wondering if this info was a spontaneous initiative from your dealer of if you had to chase them? I've ordered the car in September and the only feedback I've got was in December after asking for any news... and the news were that the delivery was delayed for a month. Apart...
