The second-generation Volvo XC60 has been spotted in Malaysia again, this time by paultan.org reader Daniel Chew. These two uncovered units were sighted at a Puspakom facility recently.

Based on these images, the XC60 will be offered with a T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain when it makes its launch debut. Primary identifiers include the obvious ‘T8’ badging on the tailgate, which is accompanied by smaller emblems beside it, as well as the charging port on the left fender.

The powertrain is made up of a Drive-E 2.0 litre supercharged and turbocharged petrol engine that makes 320 hp at 5,700 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 2,200 to 5,400 rpm. The T6-spec mill, together with an 87 hp/240 Nm electric motor, results in a total system output of 407 hp and 640 Nm.

Other components that make up the powertrain include a 34 kW crankshaft-mounted starter generator (CISG) and an Aisin-sourced AW TG-81SD eight-speed automatic transmission. Volvo claims a century sprint time of just 5.3 seconds, a top speed of 230 km/h and a combined fuel consumption of 2.1 litres per 100 km.

While one of the emblems is to indicate the assigned powertrain, the other reflects the applied trim package. In this case, both cars are wearing the Inscription kit, where the grille, parts of the lower apron and lower side mouldings are done up in chrome. Also part of the get-up are dual integrated tailpipes, and the cars are fitted with 19-inch 10-spoke black diamond cut alloy wheels.

No clear shots of the interior of both cars, but since these XC60s are fitted with the Inscription kit, a crystal gear knob by Orrefors will likely be part of the cabin. Other features that should be expected include a Sensus infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and 12-inch instrument panel display. Based on the available shots, it looks like these units come with a black interior, including the upholstery.

Previously, an XC60 wearing the R-Design kit was seen roaming around Glenmarie. Therefore, a second variant will likely join the one you see here, although the assigned powertrain is still a mystery.

A launch should be taking place real soon, and according to official distributor Sisma Auto, the XC60 will have an estimated retail price of between RM330k to RM380k. These numbers are higher than the first-generation XC60 CKD currently on sale, and are likely linked to CBU units. Here’s to hoping the XC60 follows in the same footsteps as the XC90 – CBU first, CKD later.
