Volvo Specs Powerful and Efficient New Drive-E Powertrain Concept

When the Volvo brand implemented their Drive-E engine onto an S60 model earlier this year, we were wowed by the model's powerful yet efficient performance. Now, the Swedish automaker is taking things to the next level with their new High Performance Drive-E Powertrain Concept.

This mechanism has recently been speced, proving that attaining power and efficiency at the same time is possible. This 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine features two parallel turbochargers, which are directly fed by a third electric turbo-compressor. As a result, the engine can pump out up to 450 horsepower.

It has been speculated that this new powertrain could be seen on the 2015 XC90 when it joins the new Volvo lineup in our West Springfield, MA showroom early next year. AS soon as we get more details, we'll be sure to share them here on the Fathers & Sons Volvo blog. You can subscribe to our latest updates through your RSS feed.
