Volvo and Vattenfall to show V60 diesel plug-in hybrid at Genève


February 21, 2011/9.29

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid

Power company Vattenfall and Volvo have already cooperated on electric versions of the C30 and V70. The latest model, the V60 plug-in hybrid, which will be shown at the Salon de Genève on March 1, uses a diesel engine to complement the electric motor, and can be run in all-electric, hybrid or all-diesel modes.
   The car is no pipe dream: it will be released in 2012.
   Carbon dioxide emissions are a mere 50 g/km, with a fuel consumption of 1·9 l/100 km (149 mpg Imperial). Range is 50 km if driving on the battery alone.
   Vattenfall CEO Øystein Løseth is betting that the future of the car is in electric power.
   Løseth says that Vattenfall will announce at Genève just how the car will be built and how it ties in to the electrification of transportation, though one expects this will be a development of some of the research the company, along with Volvo and BMW, have done over the last few years.
