It is in Dutch but maybe you can translate it: https://www.media.volvocars.com/be/...tie-met-een-assortiment-nieuwe-hybridemotoren

"... With these mild hybrids, customers can get to know Volvo's advanced braking system with kinetic energy recovery that is linked to the current combustion engine for the first time. You will be able to recognize this new electric motor by the "B" label.... "

I think T’s will be T’s for a while. B’s are more sophisticated T’s. D’s will be extinct.

I’m wondering if the new all electric XC40 will be E’s?

XC40 should be just XC40-8, for the 400HP, but no engine. :)

And I don't like B. Just keep them all T, or H, as all new models will be at least mild hybrid. D is gone anyways.

Mild-hybrid means electric assist off the line. Look to virtually every Toyota hybrid for a sample of how that system works. Another variant is how Jeep did the mild-hybrid system with the new Wrangler and the 2-liter motor. They put a giant belt driven generator on it that cranks the motor and drives the wheels as you pull away from a stop. I doubt that's what Volvo did though, and I'm guessing their system is more similar to Toyota's approach.

It's a smart way to increase fuel efficiency, since you use the most gas accelerating from a stop, and your just losing energy in the form of heat through your brakes when stopping.
