I don’t know too much about hubrids, but I do know I would like my next car to be one. With gas prices these days any source of alternative energy is welcome in my book. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to hybrids is their power, saving fuel is cool, but with no pick up what’s the point? This new hybrid from Volvo however is capable of going from 0-100 KM/H in 6.2 seconds, that would be about 60 mph for those of us in America.
Volvo’s V60 plug-in hybrid has three driving modes pure, hybrid, and power. Pure mode releasing no tail pipe emissions and having a travel distance of about 50 km or about 31 miles. With hybrids of this quality out on the market these days, being a consumer has never been better. Hopefully our options get better and more affordable as time passes. [via]
