Volvo has released a new video that features the V60 Plug-In Hybrid. The Swedish car combines a 2.4-litre diesel engine with an output of 215 hp and maximum torque of 440 Nm to an electric motor capable of developing the equivalent of 70 hp and 200 Nm while emitting only 49 g/km of CO2 in combined driving cycle. There are three driving modes available: “Pure”, “Hybrid” or “Power”, the latter uses the total power given by the two engines and covers 100 km/h, from standstill, in 6.2 seconds.
The main aesthetic elements are: the colour (Electric Silver), a few glossy black details, innovative 17-inch alloy wheels and integrated exhaust tailpipes. The interior is enriched with black leather upholstery with contrasting stitching, embellished with gray-blue wood trim.
The Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid will be costing between £45,000 and £50,000, with a limited model year production of a thousand units starting in November 2012, then increasing to 4,000-6,000 pieces the following year.
