“The official European NEDC certification now confirms that we outperform competitors when it comes to power versus CO2 emissions”, said Derek Crabb, head of powertrain engineering at Volvo.

The base of the Drive-E family comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Its top version is also supercharged and has 306hp to emit 149g/km of CO2. It is available in the S60 T6 with an eight-speed automatic and hits 100km/h in 5.9 seconds. It is the first combustion engine in the segment to create 2hp for each gram of CO2 emissions.
