Answer: With free charging.
Volvo is making it more difficult for car buyers to justify going for an all-gasoline-powered vehicle. The car maker has announced that it will be providing one year of free charging to customers who purchase one of its plug-in hybrid vehicles.
CNET Roadshow reports that the free charging will be delivered as a rebate at the conclusion of that one-year period. Volvo will calculate “average electricity cost during that period” in order to determine how much that will be. Currently, charging one of these vehicles usually only costs a few dollars each time, but people love to save money, so it’s still a good incentive.
The announcement came alongside the release of Volvo’s new all-electric vehicle, the XC40 Recharge. It’s the company’s first battery-electric car and has a range of roughly 200 miles per charge.
