AeroVironment, Inc. Announces Portable TurboCord™ Dual

AeroVironment, Inc. announced the portable TurboCord™ Dual (120V/240V) charger will come standard with the 2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine, which will debut later this year. The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine is the world’s first seven passenger plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). This marks the first time a plug-in hybrid manufacturer is including a Level 2 capable, 240V charger as part of its standard equipment package, providing owners of the all-new Volvo XC90 with the latest in EV charging technology from AeroVironment that is fast, convenient, easy to use and dependable. For Volvo XC90 owners who already have a 240-volt outlet in their homes, fast charging their new vehicle is as simple as taking TurboCord out of the trunk and plugging it in (a different outlet receptacle may be required). Owners who do not have a 240-volt outlet can have one installed easily by an electrician. Because it is so compact, powerful and light, yet durable delivering unmatched charging versatility TurboCord is an ideal match for the luxurious Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine, which is powered by a both a supercharged and turbocharged Drive-E engine and a rear axle electric motor. The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine can achieve 394 horsepower and will offer exceptional fuel economy. Some key features that make TurboCord well-suited for the Volvo XC90, faster charging At 240-volt Level 2 charging, the Volvo XC90 can be fully charged in as little as 2.5 hours versus 7 hours with a normal Level 1 cordset that comes with other EVs. Two chargers in one TurboCord Dual allows Volvo XC90 drivers to charge at Level 1 with any standard 120-volt outlet or charge at Level 2 (about 3 times faster) by simply installing a 240-volt outlet. Reliable TurboCord is UL listed, has safety features and is rugged and waterproof (NEMA 6P), enabling users to safely and reliably charge anywhere, even outdoors.
