Hi Folks,

Potential Volvo owner here.
Looking at some '18 XC90 T8 Hybrids and am torn.

Love the fact that it can be driven in pure battery mode.
Love the size.
The interiors.....wow!!

Everything I've read states that it "should" be good for 41Km of range on battery alone.
The one we test drove today only showed a 23Km range. I asked the salesman if it was fully charged and he said yes....hmmm.
When we set out on our test drive it bumped up to 26Km. When we switched to Hybrid mode it was showing 7Km battery range and it toggled between that and 6 for the rest of the drive.

I asked the salesman what the battery warranty was and he told me 8 years. Also asked him what a new battery would cost and he guesstimated "$10-12000 CAN". Yikes!!!

I guess I'm wondering if it's a wise purchase considering it's already almost a 4 year old car (which might account for the decreased battery range?) if it's already halfway to a battery replacement??

Also, any real life experiences with this model would be greatly appreciated.
