“Achieving an effective level of balance across comfort, efficiency and power has been the ultimate goal for our creation of the Drive-E family across our global model range,” said Michael Fleiss, Vice President, Powertrain at Volvo Car Group. “The T6 Drive-E’s use of both supercharging and turbocharging, which is also being utilized in the new XC90, delivers a lively, compelling result. We are honoured to receive this latest recognition as we continue to pioneer new, effective technologies for our vehicles and customers.”

The “Car of the Year” awards highlight those technologies and brands that the editorial team at Digital Trends feels best deliver significance and impact to their respective industries. Judging for 2015 Engine of the Year award included dozens of in-car reviews, test analysis, and debates, with the T6 Drive-E making the final round along with the Bentley W12 and the Dodge HEMI Hellcat.

“After a battery of tests, lengthy discussions, and an inspection of what values we hold dear, Volvo’s T6 Drive-E comes across as a gift to the future of motoring,” said Nick Jaynes, Automotive Editor, Digital Trends. “Volvo should be applauded for the design of its Drive-E engine family, and especially the T6 with its six-cylinder levels of horsepower and emissions and fuel economy of something smaller.”
