Volvo XC90 Recharge T8 Inscription Plus in Malaysia

Volvo Car Malaysia has released the latest pricing for the XC90 B5 Inscription Plus and the Recharge T8 Inscription Plus, which have now been revised upwards by up to RM11k for the top specification, and by RM5k for the B5.

Now priced at RM404,775 on-the-road without insurance, the top Recharge T8 variant now gets a larger battery at 18.8 kWh as well as a higher total system output at 462 hp and 709 Nm of torque, which results from the more powerful electric motor for the rear wheels now producing 145 PS, up 58 PS from before.

Internal combustion drive continues to come courtesy of the 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 317 PS and 400 Nm on its own. Linking the ICE to the driven wheels is an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the XC90 B5 Inscription Plus is now priced at RM388,599 on-the-road without insurance, and continues to get a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine driving all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, with an integrated starter generator (ISG) between itself and the engine contributing 14 PS and 40 Nm.

Across both B5 and Recharge T8 variants, the Inscription Plus trim specification in this update retains the kit list from before, save for the omission of the private locking function for the tailgate.

This means that the rest of the equipment list remains as before, and therefore continues to include the Intellisafe active safety suite comprised of City Safety with collision avoidance and mitigation with intersection support and pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection.
