The Volvo XC90 has long been considered the king of seven seaters. Smart looking, smooth driving and with a sumptious interior, the XC90 offers more than just size and space. The latest iteration of Volvo's flagship SUV sees a boost to battery size, so now this imposing vehicle can do an impressive 28 miles of pure electric driving.
The low CO2 emissions for its size and class (52-55g/km) also make it an attractive option for company car drivers, with a respectable BIK rate of 16%. There's plenty of power too - the 86hp electric motor combines with the 2.0-litre turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine to make 385bhp taking the car from 0-62mph in just 5.8 seconds.
Practicality is available in spades too, with a huge 276 litres of boot space in seven-seat mode. If you fold the back seats down this increases to 640 litres, while fully flat mode offers up a cavernous 1,816 litres of boot space.
Charging is still quick despite the bigger battery and will take around 1.5 hours to charge from empty to full when using a dedicated 7.4kW home charge point.
Charging at home
You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.
However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%.
We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
