Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid will debut in Detroit 2012

Following the rechargeable hybrid wagon Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid, the Swedish automaker has prepared a hybrid crossover XC60 Plug-in Hybrid, a concept that will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in 2012. A key differentiator of these models is the type of internal combustion engine – in the wagon mounted diesel engine, and the crossover uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol turbo, issuing 280 hp. Standard engine passes the time on the front axle and the rotation of the rear wheel meets the 70 hp electric motor, powered by a set of lithium-ion batteries. The power plant is mounted in a pair of 8-speed automatic transmission and has three operating modes: Pure, Hybrid and Power. The first option involves driving pure electric, which will overcome the distance of about 56 kilometers. In the hybrid mode on one refueling Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid is able to overcome 960 kilometers. The average fuel consumption is just 2.3 liters per hundred kilometers. Finally, the Power mode crossover employs the most out 280 hp and a torque of 380 Nm, providing acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and a top speed of 208 km/h. Recharging the battery from the mains voltage of 220 volts only takes 3.5 hours. Unlike the hybrid version V60, destined for Europe, the crossover Volvo XC60 Plug-in Hybrid is focused on the markets of the USA and China. Exact terms of the emergence of serial version and start has not reported.
