Have you thought to buy a hybrid? Here have you some thoughts to think about related electric car and the gasoline version.

I had my test drive with Volvo V60 T8 AWD with Business R-design. This design means that the car is integrated with several design elements related to interior design, materials and needed applications like CarPlay and Anrdoid Auto.
The car is with two engines, gasoline and electric. The electric range is about 50 km with good conditions, but I would say that 40 km is what is the normal with summertime and normal use.
First I have to say that this plug-in hybrid car was very easy driving due to the two power engines in it. The handling was also ok while the circle is small enough also parking in the city spaces. According to the company info the  united energy use for this model is 47 co2/km. This calculation is based on the new measuring method standard WLTP. My own expressions for the long journey driving was that the gasoline consumption was about 8-9 litres per 100 km after the electric range was used.
The car is integrated with intelligence with for example the settings for the driver seat and with the half automated pilot assist. Must say that the pilot assist is really helpful when you can rest your legs during the journey, or with driving the city limits.
The adaptive speedassistant to drive in que is a new thing and  so far we have very few experience of it. Maybe more later on when the car technology develops further.
To buy a hybrid is a good solutions for those, who can use the electric range for daily rutines like the distance between home-office or home-public transport. This Volvo is large enough for sporting goods and with small gadgets for the garden or for working. And the electric range is a positive plus for the sustainable driver.
The interior design is well-design and functional and the feeling of the Nordic design is present.
