Hi,
Just about to take delivery of a new XC90 hybrid and I'm a newbie to electric vehicles. I wonder if anyone can help with a couple of questions:
1. I live in a flat without access to a charging point at home. If I'm unable (or not often able) to access a public charging point, will running the car on its petrol engine only cause any problems other than missing out on the cost savings?
2. Volvo seem to only supply a charging cable with the 3-pin mains electric socket. Is that normal? What cable do I need to be able to charge the car at public charging points?
Thanks for your help.
David

The Type2 charging cable is an option on the T8, I don't think it's expensive but you may lose the 3pin that is expensive! My boss has one and is never happy if he starts a journey without a full battery, otherwise you will not maximise the power or the silent EV running.
