The 2013 Volvo V60 Plug-in (PIH) electric vehicle is one of remaining candidates for the “2013 Green Car of the Year Award.” award is presented at the New York Show. The panelists that the car are 66 automotive journalists from 23 The Volvo has a couple of unique that will make it a interesting winner, should it first prize.

What the 2013 Volvo V60 Plug in so unique is that it is a diesel A quick glance at any news or opinion piece on the topic that many (who know better) ask why there are not diesel-hybrid cars. The answer in is that the beneficial aspects of a motor, and the beneficial aspects of a drive system, generally one another. The overlap is not perfect, there is more to gain a combination of both than one individually in terms of energy However, diesel and hybrid systems come with a cost penalty in comparison to a powered car.

In other words, car companies can a diesel hybrid, but the result is a expensive vehicle that not get much better mileage a gas hybrid.

That said, the 2013 V60 Plug In hybrid has found a niche. This is a wise by Volvo, and its partner on the project, Electricity supplier Vattenfall. Speck, Senior Vice Marketing, Sales and Customer at Volvo Car Group sums up the buyer for this unusual car saying The ingenious on-demand makes the V60 Plug-in Hybrid to all other hybrids on the market. to the Pure, Hybrid and Power the car is the perfect choice for the uncompromising who wants to minimize his or her carbon emissions but maximize driving Mr. Speck is referring to a power selector switch that the driver to decide if he is driving on “Hybrid,” or “Pure.” Pure electric.

The whole is to prevent a car maker from a 1 mile EV system in a Mustang GT to fuel economy ratings, the driver can then switch to off and completely.

So the cars sold in the US have to the “Power” button after a so the car reverts to hybrid.

The niche the V60 in hybrid has is it’s as fast as a Volvo V60 with the top gasoline It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds according to the manufacturer. is about the same performance as turbocharged “R” wagons this So the car is fast, fuel efficient, has a EV-only system that can the car a respectable 31 miles or so on battery

However, this press and others say the car is sold out. press releases also mention the car’s price, readers of TN have written in was the equivalent of about $110,000.00 US Thus we have a mid-sized Tesla Model S competitor on our

The cars sold out a long ago. Would it be a conspiracy to suggest Volvo and the Swedish company took a bath on on built and therefore limited to the minimum possible as a promotional It has been sold out for six months.

Why not more?

Just this an esteemed auto writer at News predicted the coming of a performance car with an on-board PIH to make the car also a green He was thinking of a Camaro SS and a future, expensive electric drive but it seems Volvo decided not to for the cost to come down.
