Diesel plug-in hybrid gets £5k state aid to drop price to £44k

The world’s first diesel plug-in hybrid, the Volvo V60 D6 AWD, has received approval for the Government’s Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) which is designed to offer incentives for buyers to choose new ultra-low carbon cars.

In this scheme, buyers will receive a £5000 grant towards the purchase price of the vehicle, which can cover up to 31 miles in full electric mode, meaning it will be available with an on-the-road price of £43,775.

That still leaves it £16,480 – the price of a Mini Cooper Diesel – more expensive than the diesel V60 D2 SE with 119g/km CO2 and 62.8mpg combined cycle fuel economy, and £10,000 more expensive than the current flagship D5 R-Design diesel V60.
