Scheduled for a 2012 release date, the V60 is the first diesel plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in the world.
According to Technologic Vehicles, the V60 features three driving modes: Pure (electric only), Hybrid (default mode) and Power, when the engines act together.
It also features a four-wheel drive mode: at the push of a button, the front wheels are driven by the diesel engine while the electric motor drives the rear wheels.
