Volvo V60 D6 AWD Plug-In Hybrid test drive

How much would you pay for an estate that had four-wheel drive, prodigious torque and the ability to hit 60mph from rest in under six seconds. Forty grand?

For not much more than that, Volvo’s V60 Plug-In Hybrid does all of that and will also return 155mpg and 48g/km of emissions.

In theory at least. There are a few caveats that suggest that this is a work in progress, but the numbers are mightily impressive.

That the V60 Plug-In Hybrid is rapid isn’t up for debate. With power going to all four-wheels, it’ll hit 60mph in just 5.8 seconds when switched into Power mode. Here you get the 69bhp electric motor augmenting the 212bhp 2.4-litre turbodiesel, giving an initial slug of torque while the turbochargers spool up, the six-speed automatic taking the thinking out of straight line acceleration.
