      The T8 keeps its battery charged by its front engine-driven CISG and rear regenerative braking even if never plugged in.

      As I've pointed out before, if the V90CC has 4 wheel air suspension (unlike the S90) it could become the A6 Allroad's first direct competitor.

      The eTron is forthcoming in the USA. It's already out elsewhere as I point out above. I am not aware of any performance claims for an SQ7.

      Up to now I've generally preferred Audis to Volvos, and I quite liked the Mk1 Q7's looks, and I have studied two of the new Q7s up close, and new cars often look better in reality than photos. But...

      Volvo revised their claims twice. They now claim 62 (not 60) mph in 5.6 seconds for the T8, which sounds plausible for a 407 hp 2.35 ton SUV. The numbers are indeed what they are.

      The manufacturers claim 40 km or more electric-only range for all the cars you mention, achieved no doubt with a raw egg between one's shoe and the gas pedal!

      Yes! The back of the XC90 CAN do that by folding down the middle seats and sitting in the third row. Meanwhile, take a look at the OUTSIDE of the Kia Telluride. Imitation is the sincerest form of...

      Volvo claim 62 mph in 5.6 seconds for their 407 hp XC90 T8, quicker than Audi's claim for any Q7, including the forthcoming E-Tron version.

      Holding a lower gear such that the driver cannot accelerate beyond a certain speed is clearly a dangerous fault and a matter for the dealer's immediate attention.

      I like station wagons, even on stilts like the first Q7. What I don't like are ugly cars of any type.

      Good points. Though modern car wood veneers are very thin decorative overlays. And the T8's central battery is where the central crush box was in other Volvos.
