2013 Volvo V60 Diesel Plug-in Hybrid Sells Out

Volvo's new 2013 V60 diesel plug-in hybrid has sold out before its even reached showrooms. Volvo's initial production goal for the 2013 model year are set at 1,000 units, but if you are in Europe and were hoping to grab one, it looks like you will have to wait until the 2014 model year.


"None of our competitors can offer customers an equally ingenious car. Its uncompromising attitude to green motoring elevates hybrid technology to an entirely new level," stated Doug Speck, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Corporation.

The first 1,000 units of the Volvo V60 diesel plug-in hybrid are only available in a "Pure Limited" edition painted in Electric Silver. The diesel-electric car is also distinguished by aero-designed 17-inch wheels, integrated exhaust tailpipes and a number of bodywork features in glossy black.

Volvo will increase production to 5,000 units for the 2014 model year. Volvo will eventually bring a plug-in hybrid to the U.S., but it will use a gasoline engine, instead of the diesel.
