After being released just last year, Volvo’s V60 diesel plug-in hybrid has sold out throughout Europe. The commercial popularity of Volvo’s first-ever V60 diesel plug-in hybrid is mirrored by its acceptance by the critics. The car was a top three finalist for this year’s Green Car of the Year award.
The car that is behind Volvo’s most successful new vehicle launch ever may prove to be what opens the door for a Volvo plug-in to come to the U.S. However, there are some challenges an American launch would face. First of all, the base V60 plug-in hybrid starts at $74,000. Next of all, its single charge range is just 31 miles. Once its electric load has been spent, the car switches to a 2.4 turbodiesel engine that churns out 212 horses and 324 lb-feet of torque.
