Volvo Hybrid 2016 XC90 T8 Lawsuit
Purchase an Electric Volvo Hybrid 2016 XC90 T8?
Volvo is currently in the hotseat regarding their claims about mileage for an electric SUV that costs $84,000. According to actual drivers of that vehicle, the company’s claim that the car gets 25 miles to the gallon was way off target. Although the company had promoted the SUV’s mileage reach as fairly competitive in a marketplace where miles per charge and the space and other amenities offered by an SUV are popular with consumers, those driving the cars were only getting around 10 miles for each charge.
Volvo offered the plaintiffs in this 2016 case a full refund, but owners of this vehicle may be interested in investigating their legal rights and determining next steps with the help of a class action lawyer. Anyone who preordered the vehicle or based their purchase off of these claims of how far they could go on one charge may be eligible to pursue legal action.
Those consumers who have been harmed or led to believe something inaccurate about a vehicle may have grounds to pursue a claim against the manufacturer.
In the recent class action lawsuit, the claim was dismissed when Volvo offered a full refund, but owners rejected this offer. The car in question is the 2016 XC90 T8 plug-in hybrid. Volvo had previously gone on the record stating that the vehicle could achieve up to 40 kilometers from one charge based on research done in the European Union. One dealership that took the vehicle out for testing determined that the vehicle went approximately 18 miles on one charge.
