b: Ikea closet system


"But that wasn't enough, so a supercharger was strapped on for more power. The Volvo T6 Drive-E powertrain is like an Ikea closet system, you start out with the barebones closet and keep adding things to your liking – or for Volvo, just keep adding more forced induction. However, I can't really fault the Swedish geniuses, because power delivery is extremely smooth with plenty of low-end torque."
