Volvo reportedly working on XC100 Recharge flagship electric SUV

Volvo will launch a coupe-like SUV related to its next-generation XC90 SUV, Motor Trend reported on Monday.

It will reportedly be called the XC100 Recharge, with the name signifying that it will be offered with electric power only. “Recharge” is the designation Volvo uses for electric cars, starting with the recently revealed XC40 Recharge.

It will also reportedly come with a price tag of $85,000, meaning it will essentially fill in for Volvo’s unloved XC90 T8 Excellence which was originally priced above $100,000 but needed to be heavily discounted to get it out the door. With a unique design, the XC100 Recharge should have a better chance of avoiding the same fate.

2020 Chevy Corvette C8 Brings a Premium: Bring a Trailer Auction Roundup

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe

If you couldn’t swing the $3 million it took to be the first buyer of a 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette back in January, that’s alright. We’ve now seen what kind of premium a delivery-miles C8 is really worth on the auction block, and in this case, it’s about a 14-percent markup over list price. The C8 Corvette in question has just eight miles on the odometer and is equipped with both the 3LT and Z51 options, plus staggered 19-inch front, 20-inch rear Trident optional wheels, red painted brake calipers, the front lift option and Magnetic Ride Control. All in all, a very well configured C8 with an as-equipped MSRP of $83,725. The winning Bring a Trailer bidder paid $96,075, including BaT’s 5-percent buyer fee, and we think that’s a fair price for the luxury of having your C8 right now, instead of next year. Remember,
