      And it can't come soon enough. And good luck to all who have Sensus in their cars when the change is made. I have a pre-Sensus Volvo and will not get another one until Sensus is gone. Do you think...

      Yep, same here. I think it should be 18 or larger for the PHEVs also. Volvo must think that people love to go to gas stations as often as possible.

      It's just sad that even 2020 Volvo PHEVs only have an 11-kWh battery pack. No excuse, especially from a company that makes a huge deal of going electric; they should be at the forefront of battery...

      No... most BEVs that come in both one-axle (RWD or FWD) and two-axle (AWD) motors have little difference in range numbers between the one-axle and two-axle vehicles -- like 10 or 20 miles max. It's...
