Volvo Car Malaysia recently introduced the locally-assembled (CKD) version of the Volvo XC90, which comes at a RM50,000 discount from the imported version. Where the imported version sold for RM453,888, the XC90 CKD is priced at RM403,888 on-the-road without insurance. Outside of Sweden, Malaysia is the only other country in the world that produces the flagship XC90.
Here, we have the XC90 in T8 Twin Engine Inscription trim, featuring the carmaker’s plug-in hybrid powertrain, which employs a 2.0 litre four-cylinder super- and turbocharged Drive-E petrol engine, paired with an electric motor. The good news here is a claimed fuel consumption of up to 2.1 litres per 100 km.
If that isn’t enough, the XC90’s cabin is awash in luxury, starting with a crystal gear knob by Swedish crystal makers Orrefors. The other standout feature here is a portrait-format, nine-inch touchscreen display that is linked to Volvo’s latest Sensus Connect High Performance infotainment system.
These are just some of the features that are shown in the video above. For full details on the locally-assembled Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine Inscription, do watch our walk-around tour.
