Despite the main market for hybrids being the US, Volvo has decided to sell its new V60 hybrid exclusively in Europe. The plug-in hybrid was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, last year.
The car features Volvo’s familiar 2.4-liter 5-cylinder diesel engine with 215 hp which, in the hybrid, is boosted by a 70-hp electric motor. The diesel engine drives the front axle, while the rear axle is powered by the electric motor. This drivetrain combination gives the car an incredible fuel efficiency rating of 2l/100km (117 US mpg) and a theoretical battery-only range of 50 km (31 miles) - both figures are extremely good, even for a hybrid.

The hybrid car is only available with all the options and the highest trim level and it costs €61,150 (£49,300), which is €13,650 (£11,000) more than a V60 with the 2.4-liter diesel and the same trim level and options.
