The new Volvo XC90 B5 Inscription Plus is a mild hybrid under the B badge line
Volvo Car Malaysia has just launched its latest 2022 Volvo XC90 B5 Inscription Plus for the local market. This mild hybrid under the B badge line is the latest variant to be made available right next to the flagship Volvo XC90 Recharge T8 Inscription Plus model.
Its four-cylinder turbocharged engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission has been integrated with an electric component in the form of an advanced kinetic energy recovery braking system. Producing 249hp and 350Nm of torque, it is said that this combo will help reduce the vehicle's overall fuel consumption and emissions.
Safety and specs for the new 2022 Volvo XC90 B5 Inscription Plus still carry the brand's signature features such as 360° surround view camera, 20-inch wheels, Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound Audio System, and a host of advanced safety features like Lane Keeping Aid, Cross Traffic Alert and City Safety with Autobrake.
According to Charles Frump, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia, "We are excited to strengthen our XC90 line-up with the introduction of our latest mild hybrid. This new variant allows our customers the flexibility to choose the powertrain that best suits their needs."
For those who are interested, the new 2022 Volvo XC90 B5 Inscription Plus is priced at RM386,842.12 (on-the-road price excluding insurance, but with sales tax exemption). Customers can choose between four different colour options.
