The New Drive-E Volvo: Breaking Down the Fuel Cost Savings

The new Volvo Drive-E engine range certainly impresses on the power front...the T5 Drive-E delivers 240 horsepower and up to 280 pound feet of torque. The Volvo T6 Drive-E with its turbo-charged and supercharged engine puts out over 300 horsepower...all while returning exceptional fuel economy.

Let's take a look at the numbers. If you take a Volvo S60 T5 Drive-E and you own it for 5 years you will have an annual fuel bill of $1,800 and you also will have saved an average of $2,000 in fuel versus the average automobile (according to EPA estimates). In addition to superior fuel economy, you will have not given up any power or have to purchase expensive diesel fuel or premium fuel.

That's right...unlike a lot of the competition, the Volvo S60 T5 Drive-E runs on 87 octane...all while returning 25 miles per gallon city and 37 miles per gallon highway. Pretty impressive for a fast (and safe!) sports sedan.
