      It's normal for a tech to drive it home on extended test drives.

      Glad it's resolved.

      Side observation - SmallBang is proven correct yet again. Ha.

      Ya, 1/10th of second is what I've seen quoted. Most folks seem to like the transmission optimizations (holding a lower gear longer, slight decrease in shift delay).

      Volvo never offered it for the...

      I believe EU engines use an exhaust particulate filter, which reduces the output by 10 hp.

      I bought an inexpensive full size spare that I store in the garage. I've used it once so far for a flat.

      I only take it on long trips - bolted to a cargo carrier that slips in the hitch receiver.

      Ya, I've been there too. Around 400 miles, the high voltage contactor on my T8 died, rendering the EV portion of my T8 non-functional (turtle icon). Sucks, but the dealer addressed the problem within...

      There isn't a "common" issue for the "reduced performance" error. I thought I made that clear too. :)

      Wait until the dealer calls you. Speculation will get you nowhere.

      The T8 is a T6 (ICE) + EV. Some of the "reduced performance" issues were related to ICE, some were related to EV. It's a mixed bag.

      There have been numerous posts regarding "reduced performance"...

      I suppose your options are:

      1) buy a $10 ODBII code reader and pull the codes (if any)
      2) take it to the dealer
      3) post on swedespeed and request speculative diagnoses based on zero data

      The price difference between the T6 and T8 is $8k (T8 is a superset of the T6). After the $5k federal credit and $2.5k state credit (TX), it's a $500 premium.

      At $500, it makes perfect financial...

      I consistently get 31 - 32 mpg in a heavier XC60 T8 w/ sticky 265 mm pzeros on road trips (70 - 80 mph).

      Suspension is 1 inch lower than stock, so that helps with wind resistance at speed.
    15. EVs always produce more torque at a high charge...

      EVs always produce more torque at a high charge state. I suspect you lost traction and traction control cut power accordingly. I think your 0-60 numbers are off simply due to tire choice.

      IMO, you're over-thinking this. The 2020 T8 (10 - 11 kWh) uses a nominal amount of electricity to charge from "empty" (~70% of the available capacity).

      11.6 kWh battery * 92% = 10.7 kWh (available...

      On average, T8 engines have significantly less usage. If ICE is used 50% of the time, you won't see a failure until 100k miles.

      A '18 T8 cost $500 more than a T6, after federal ($5k) and state ($2.5k) rebates. I'll wager my T8 will be worth more than an equivalent T6 ($500 deficit) at the time of sale.

      Of course, most of...

      I've used several Chargepoint stations without issue.

      However, I have encountered two malfunctioning stations at the Whole Foods near my house. It took 6+ months to fix them.

      No, it applies to operating the vehicle too. If ICE hasn't run yet (no residual heat) and the electric heater is turned OFF, you'll get zero heat from the vents. I've verified this in my T8.

      Ha, the first reply was a dead 12v battery. Then, the OP went on a wild goose chase about disabling start-stop on T8.

      The comedy literally writes itself.

      If you want more range, precondition the cabin on 240v (won't cost you range), and turn OFF the electric auxiliary heater when you drive away.
