Volvo V60 Will Be First Production Plug-In Hybrid
Swedish brand Volvo Cars, recently acquired by Chinese Zhejiang Geely Holding, will base its first plug-in hybrid vehicle on the V60 model, CEO Stefan Jacoby told today Swedish business daily Dagens Industri (DI).
Volvo Cars started a cooperation with Swedish energy utility Vattenfall on a plug-in hybrid vehicle in January 2007. The prototypes were based on the V70 model, which was the reason many believed that this model will be the basis also for the serial production.
The engine combination will be diesel and electricity. The plug-in hybrid vehicle will have carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of 49 gr/km, DI said. The most generous state support has the limit at just 50 gr/km, DI pointed out.
