Volvo mild-hybrid technology

Bringing electric efficiency and even smoother driving to our traditional combustion engines.

Introducing our “B” badged mild-hybrids

Otherwise known as mild-hybrid electric vehicles (MHEVs). Available on select models.

What is a mild-hybrid?

A traditional combustion engine supported by a small electric motor.

How are they charged?

Through energy recovered from regenerative braking. No cables needed.

Can they run solely on electric power?

No, the electric motor provides support to improve the engine’s efficiency.

15% more fuel efficient. 15% lower emissions.

With an electric motor to recover lost energy and aid acceleration, enjoy a combustion engine optimised like never before.

No charging required

Our mild-hybrids are recharged by collecting wasted energy through regenerative braking – so you don’t have to plug them in.
