Now in April, Volvo Car Corporation opens the order books for the most technically advanced Volvo ever: the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid – the world’s first diesel plug-in hybrid car. This innovative vehicle represents the next bold step in the evolution of electrification, where Volvo Car Corporation is almost a year ahead of competition. The launch of the first 1,000 units is supported by a series of witty “unboxing webisodes”, found at http://www.youtube.com/user/VolvoCarsNews . The V60 Plug-in Hybrid can be recharged from a regular power outlet (230V/6A, 10A or 16A), and it drives up to 50 km on Pure mode (battery) with zero tailpipe emissions. Swich to Hybrid mode and let the diesel engine and electric motor cooperate to ensure the optimal balance between driving pleasure and environmental footprint. CO2 emission in Hybrid mode is as little as 49g/km, corresponding to diesel consumption of 1.9l/100 km. The car has a total range of up to 1,000 km. When selecting Power mode the car gets maximum power, with up to 280 horsepower and acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in 6.2 seconds.
