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).

So no new T5 Twin engine at the start of the introduction of the XC40..
At pity this was the engine I wanted to buy.

So have to wait till next year..
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.
Word from Top Gear says the plug-in hybrid XC40 will launch before this year ends. Exact specs are still hidden, but they're expecting to see an output similar to what the non-hybrid XC40 T5 is already producing and an electric only range of around 20 miles.
Given the fact they could come across reps that leak information in ways that won't reveal where it came from I can believe it and just looking at the timeline of what we know, it all adds up.
