The Volvo V60 plug-in will cost £42,000 and the firm hopes to sell 100 of them in the UK next year
Volvo has released full details of its V60 plug-in hybrid, which is set to cost £42,000 (including the Government grant) when it goes on sale in November next year.
The world’s first plug-in diesel hybrid will be able to cover 32 miles in pure electric mode. Despite a combined power output of 212bhp from the 2.4-litre five-cylinder engine and 69bhp electric motor, it will emit a miniscule 49g/km of CO2.
Only 1,000 cars will be built next year, and Volvo plans to bring around 100 of those to the UK.
