We already knew that Volvo presents its 2012 production-ready V60 Plug-In Hybrid in 2011, the Geneva Motor Show, but the automaker has released the first official pictures and information on the semi-electric car this morning.

Developed in collaboration with European Energy Vattenfall, the V60 was developed in parallel with C30 after the maker of electric cars, but that's where the similarities end. Sport AWD V60, but assigns a 215-horsepower, 2.4-liter turbo-diesel I-5 to power the front wheels, while driving a motor of 70 horsepower electric rear axle. A battery of 12 kWh lithium ion battery is also integrated into the system.

How do I use this propulsion system totally at the discretion of the driver. Three driving modes - including one that makes the V60 as a pure electric vehicle - can be selected from behind the wheel. The pure method allows up to 31 miles pure EV driving. Hybrid mode combines both traditional energy sources and to provide the most economical way of driving. A feeding method combines engine and electric motor to deliver all the power, and thereafter, all-wheel drive.

In full power mode, the V60 PHEV sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds, but choosing a more efficient hybrid may allow up to 745 miles of travel before filling the tank and charge the battery. Volvo plans to charge times vary from as little as three hours when you use a charger 16 amps at 240 volts for 7.5 hours when using a 230-V, the supply of six amps - a bit like a classic European household outlet. The car can also be pre-cooled or heated during charging, with these parameters are controlled, either in the setup menu of the car in the car or via a mobile application.

The V60 plug-in hybrid is expected to launch in Europe next year, and both prices and the deployment schedule may be discussed next week in its debut in Geneva. The executives suggested that the V60 PHEV can reach American shores, but if so, can not maintain the diesel engine. The exchange could affect the extent, but the appeal to buyers in a market traditionally hostile to diesel.
