2015 Volvo V40 gets Drive-E powertrain

Volvo Cars has recently announced its plans to offer the Drive-E powertrain to the V40, as part of the 2015 model year lineup.

The 2015 Volvo V40 will now be getting the engines from the new Drive-E powertrain family which promises to have more power, a improved fuel consumption and cut down CO2 emissions, which “no competitor can match”.

“The outstanding take-off and responsiveness of the Drive-E engines, combined with a smooth engine sound, will make the cars even more fun to drive, without compromising on modern customers’ demand for superb fuel economy and minimized CO2-emissions”, said Michael Fleiss, the Volvo Car Group powertrain vice president.

Volvo says that the CO2 emissions of the 190 HP D4 stand at an impressive 99 g/km. The D4 family is also joined by the new 245 HP T5 FWD version, which is coming with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. The CO2 emissions in this version stand at 137 g/km. Volvo says that the D4 and T5 are available to order as we speak but production will start in September and the first deliveries of the models will probably be made towards the end of the year.
