Under the hood is a 2.0-liter I4 engine that's both turbocharged and supercharged, powering the front wheels.

All told, this system pushes out a healthy 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. Power going to the front and rear wheels means the S90 T8 has all-wheel drive, too.

When fully charged, the S90 says I have an indicated 25 miles of all-electric range.

The S90 has Volvo's Pilot Assist, too, which combines the adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist, but this is a hands-on system and must be treated as such.
