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.
The UK drink-drive limit is currently 35 micrograms of alcohol for every 100 millilitres of breath or 80 milligrams of alcohol for every 100 millilitres of blood in your body. What do you think about it?
