Edited Package Speaker Plug in Hybrid Newsfeed Volvo Cars new Plug-in Hybrid, that has been developed in collaboration with power company Vattenfall, is a unique car of the future that can be driven both by electricity and environment friendly diesel. SYNC The new V60 Plug-in Hybrid, that is the first on the market using this particular technology, can be driven up to 50 kilometres on a single charge, which means that the majority of car owners can drive to and from work without the need to recharge the batteries. SYNC This car has carbon dioxide emissions of less than 50g per km which means that it only consumes 1.9 litres of fuel per 10 kilometres. Running costs are only about 3 Euro per 100 km. SYNC Both Vattenfall and Volvo Cars see major advantages in this collaboration. At Vattenfall they are now investing major resources to develop the necessary new infrastructure and new battery charging facilities. SYNC Sequence/Crash … Volvo has consciously chosen to base the development of this project on an existing model in the range, which in fact, means that this will be the world's safest Plug-in Hybrid. SYNC The price of these cars will be somewhat higher due to the high manufacturing cost of the lithium batteries, but both energy experts and the manufacturers are convinced that the major environmental gains and extremely low running costs will more than outweigh the higher costs. SYNC For Volvo Cars it is vitally important to be at the very cutting edge when it comes to developing green technology for the future.
