An EV with a backup – the Volvo XC60 T8 Recharge

Update: I say that the care package comes with the T8 – it only comes with the P8.

There is still a lot of range anxiety here in South Africa when it comes to Electric Vehicles (EVs). And it is not surprising. We fear we don’t have the right infrastructure, yet we have one of the highest car to charging station ratios in the world. But still, people are fearful. Eskom and loadshedding are often used as reasons to not buy an EV, when in actual fact, if treated like a smartphone, loadshedding should have no real impact on your EV. But for those who are still worried and a bit nervous about going full EV, here is your answer. The XC60 T8 Recharge is the EV with a back up. And it is awesome.

On another note, the Hyundai Tucson is a bit of a shocker!
