Volvo V60 D6 plug-in hybrid and hands-on

Volvo hopes to do rather special with its V60 Looking to be the most fuel car launched in 2013, this powered hybrid is quite anything we have driven

The electric motor combined a diesel engine, which is a first, makes for an impressive of torque in virtually any gear. As the V60 feels sportier than other Volvos. In fact, hybrid will get you from in 6.1 seconds yet is still able to around 60mpg.

Quite an

Delivering all that performance is a five-cylinder diesel, along a 50kw electric motor. geeking too much on specs, the car is to deliver 487lb/ft of torque 1,500 and 3,000 rpm. In world terms this the car pulls nicely from lights and at low city speeds, but really well on the motorway.

The hybrid drivetrain is controllable via buttons on the central console. You can opt for electric mode, hybrid or a power mode. Driving the V60 in electric mode gives you a 30-mile range in city after a full charge.

the car takes around 7.5 hours on a 6A

The hybrid mode is what deliver the most in terms of Volvo’s hybrid technology to let the car use electric power right up the last minute. Kick foot down and the diesel give you a boost, but the car will for the part cruise on electric.

Even when the engine start up the car is incredibly quiet and is no noticeable change in throttle or ride quality.

Power is what delivers all the performance. The V60 285hp and can keep going all the way up to 143 Its sporty looks and low rev range and torque make us wonder how fun potential Golf GTI buyers families to cart about have.

We really weren’t expecting a car, let alone a Volvo, to such a kick in first and gear.

Interior build is different from a lot of the luxury competition. While some Prius buyers may be considering the V60 this is a car much closer to a BMW or in refinement. It also looks to what German rivals to offer, with a clever centre console and a nifty LCD

There are touches of wood and design flair throughout the making it more distinctive most similar luxury

We love the way the satnav screen power flow and battery while you drive and how the central can change colour depending on driving mode you are in. Volvo does have its in-car nailed and the inclusion of the likes of in cars such as the V60 is just the on the cake.

This being a Volvo, is predictably paramount. Everything automatic braking to pedestrian can be optioned on to the car. There is the ability to use a smartphone app to locate the within car parks.

The V60 hybrid just grabbed the highest ever in Euro NCAP for an car. So this is something you feel happy carting about in.

Ri,ght now Volvo is £48,775 for the plug-in hybrid. The offers a £5,000 plug-in which brings the car down to in cost. On top of this, it’s tax and congestion charge exempt, so you save plenty more during its lifetime.

Throw in the money saved on and really, the plug-in hybrid to look cheaper than a V60.

Okay so the price is a high, but this is a properly car. The interior detailing, and looks can easily match executive cars in this bracket. The difference here is not only are you ticking the environmentally box, but the car is also delivering and technology that few competitors

If you have the money and are in the market for a family car, we seriously having a look.
