Rear passengers get to enjoy the individual and adjustable seats, combined with massage function and specially designed headrests, along with two folding tables, cup holders with heating and cooling options and handcrafted crystal glasses from Orrefors.
The T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain is the only one available. for the Excellence. It offers three distinct driving modes that include Pure, Hybrid and Power, the latter being tuned to make the best use of the 410 HP output.
