New T5 hybrid

Looking forward to the new plugin hybrid the T5. 3 cilinder petrol with electromotor.

Hope this coming to sale direct with the reveal on 21 September.

I'm interesed to perhaps buy this version. Since more and more cities in Europe are putting limitations to city centers for diesel engines. Now driving a D4 diesel.

Anyone else also interested in the new T5 Hybrid?. (most people are from the US I guess so think not).

The T5 is the hybrid model? I though it was the T8?
But if the XC40 came with a hybrid variant, I would definitely be interested simply because of the improved low end torque and increased fuel efficiency.

Seeing those gas bills are never fun.

For the XC40 it will be named T5.. This will be the new 3 cilinder petrol with electric motor.

You can find a Youtube movie about it.. It's in the explanations about CMA.

Its a strategic move since they know that's the model people really want but at the same time are the crowd that might just pull the trigger on an initial launch model. The XC40 is nice enough overall for me to jump the gun their.

I'm willing to wait for a hybrid XC40, in nor hurry and the electric motors in hybrids are supposed to give you more low end torque compared to the average gas engine.
