Volvo’s plug-in hybrid qualifies for £5,000 grant for buyers |

It’s the news we’ve been waiting to hear..Volvo’s ground-breaking new Volvo V60 plug-in hybrid will be eligible for the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant worth £5,000 to buyers.
That means that the world’s first plug-in diesel hybrid will be available for £43,775 after the grant is deducted-still a premium product, but with a healthy chunk off the price tag.

It’s not just the price of the car Volvo describes as ‘three cars in one’ that makes the model rather exclusive; just 1,000 models will be made during a first production run, which began late last year, with around 150 destined for the UK.
Deliveries began back in November, and thankfully, Volvo is already talking about the next step of production when 4,000-6,000 models will be produced by 2014, with around between 5 and 15 per cent intended for the UK.
Marketing the V60 D6 plug in model as its ‘most advanced car yet’, the rechargeable diesel hybrid offers three driving modes; able to drive in fully electric mode, hybrid mode or four wheel drivemode-known as the Pure, Hybrid and Power driving functions.
Plugged in
In order to qualify for the Plug-in Car Grant, the Volvo V60 D6 had to fulfil a number of criteria, including standards on battery warranty, crash safety, battery safety and also CO2 emissions.
The car joins other rechargeable models such as the Nissan LEAF, Vauxhall Ampera and Toyota Prius Plug-in for eligibility for the Government grant.
