Volvo V60 Twin Engine

One key, two engines.

The Volvo V60 T8 TWIN ENGINE AWD * combines a 223 kW (303 hp) 4-cylinder gasoline engine that powers the front wheels and a 65 kW (87 hp) electric mo-tor that works on the rear wheels. You can easily adjust the interaction between the two engines via six driving modes - adapted to the driving situation and your individual wishes. The bottom line is that you benefit from a performance that would otherwise require a much larger conventional engine.

The perfect driving mode for any situation.

Do you want an efficient, environmentally-friendly electric engine? Do you appreciate the performance and range of a petrol engine? The Volvo TWIN ENGINE models with Plug-in Hybrid technology prove that environmental awareness and performance orientation are not contradictory and enable you to use the advantages of both drive systems flexibly, depending on your driving situation and desire, using three driving modes.

Do You Have Questions? We are always pleased to help you.

Is the hybrid model of the Volvo V60 more expensive?
The maintenance costs are about as high as the D5 Geartronic model with diesel engine. One of the advantages of the electric motors is their maintenance-free operation.
How far can I drive the batteries in electrical mode?
In electrical operation, you can drive a distance of about 50 km (maximum speed 125 km / h). Depending on driving style, road conditions and outside temperatures (very cold or very warm) the range can vary considerably.
Which workshop can I contact for damage repair to the body?
The removal of the high-voltage battery may be necessary for repairs to the body, which may only be carried out by personnel trained to perform this work in accordance with the applicable regulations. The Volvo contractors meet the above requirements.
Can a breakdown in my vehicle be repaired on site or must it be in a Volvo workshop?
This depends on the nature of the problem, of course. As is also the case with other vehicles, Volvo Assistance also requires that the vehicle be towed into a workshop and not repaired on the road, unless the vehicle is at a standstill is not a technical problem (eg tire rim) or a breakdown (eg missing fuel). For some repairs the removal of the high-voltage battery may be necessary, which may only be carried out by personnel trained to carry out this work according to the applicable regulations. The Volvo contractors meet the above requirements.
How long is the battery life?
With moderate usage the battery's life cycle lasts as long as the vehicle (approximately 15 years). It can be charged up to 9,000 times (complete charging and discharging cycles). The battery also has a 5 year or 150,000 km warranty.
Is the V60 Twin Engine a safe vehicle?
All models, including electrically operated ones, must comply with Volvo's safety standards. The Volvo V60 Twin Engine has impressively demonstrated the highest score ever achieved, which has ever been awarded for safety in an electric car in the context of a Euro NCAP test.
Can the batteries catch fire during an accident?
Volvo's electric vehicles are thoroughly tested. A situation like this has never occurred and can not be expected. The batteries of an electric vehicle do not ignite if they are not subjected to particularly severe impacts.
Are there restrictions on the safety of indoor parking?
No, there is no restriction.
How much does charging the V60 hybrid cost?
Because rates vary according to provider, charging time and kW consumption, it is difficult to determine the exact cost. As a guideline, one could use 0.20 CHF / kWh, which would amount to approx. CHF 1.40 for a distance of 40 km when applied to an V60 Twin Engine.
