The Volvo S60 plug-in hybrid saloon may have sedate looks, but it has a sporty performance thanks to the combination of the T8 Twin Engine and instant response from the electric motor.
In fact, it produces 388hp and 0-62mph is over in just 4.6 seconds. So, the Swedish saloon can produce thrills when asked, but the 11.6kWh battery and electric motor are also on hand to delivery efficiency improvements too.
The S60 PHEV will deliver 32 miles (WLTP) of pure electric driving and it comes with the usual modes – EV only, hybrid, and “hold” – so you can decide how to make use of the battery. You can take it easy and eek out as many miles per gallon as possible, or get those electric motors whirring to help deliver thrills and spills.
The S60 PHEV is available in three main trims, including R-Design, Inscription and the more aggressive-looking and performing Polestar Engineered variant. Polestar is the electric vehicle performance arm of Volvo; in this trim it adds some neat exterior and interior finishes, while overall performance is increased.
Prices for this trim start at £56,105, while the R-Design and Inscription start at around £38,000.
Charging from a dedicated home charger, the S60 takes about three hours to charge from empty to 80%.
