Automakers are slowly announcing their intentions to bring new vehicles to be debuted at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Volvo has announced that it will be bringing the V60 plug-in hybrid to be debuted. The automaker has also promised that the vehicle will be delivered to the market next year, and Volvo is claiming that the V60 plug-in is near production-ready and not a concept.
This diesel-electric V60 plug-in does have impressive details. It's being claimed that the car can run up to 31 miles on pure electric power alone. The power is featured by Volvo's D5 2.4-liter five-cylinder diesel engine that can produce 215-horsepower. The rear axle located ERAD electric motor can make some 70 kW from the lithium ion battery pack. We're looking forward to seeing more of this car at the upcoming Geneva show in early March.
