The 2023 Volvo models are already in production and should be hitting dealership showrooms by the end of this summer. The Google™ infotainment operating system will be a huge upgrade across all 2023 models. This OS is already found inside select 2022 models such as the Volvo XC40 Recharge and the Volvo XC60.

More About 2023 Electric Vehicles

So, does the arrival of 2023 Volvo models spell the end for gas-powered models? Not yet. All models will be electrified, whether that's fully, partially, or below the radar. The latter refers to the new mild-hybrid powertrains. Let us explain.

Mild-hybrid technology does not use electrification to power your wheels as with plug-in hybrids or other Volvo all-electric vehicles. Electrification works on the engine to reduce engine load, thus making them more fuel-efficient. There's no recharging required. This powertrain is self-contained and offers the perfect transition into electrified vehicles. If you're looking for a trusted Volvo dealer in Kentucky to help you acquire yours, we're happy to assist.

Another big story for 2023 Volvo models is the anticipated arrival of the all-electric Volvo XC90. The plug-in hybrid version of that SUV currently enjoys a newly enhanced 455-horsepower drivetrain. We can only wonder how powerful a fully electrified version will be. Once the flagship SUV from Volvo Cars goes all-electric, all other models will soon follow. Be on the lookout for the all-new Volvo C40 Recharge crossover and the forthcoming Volvo XC100 SUV. Fully electrified Volvo vehicles are on the march. Keep your eye on our new Volvo SUVs for sale. They'll be arriving soon.
