Volvo starts to build on its hybrid technology availability with the introduction of a new member in the Twin Engine family on the UK market. The new Twin Engine range sees the addition of a new V60 variant that will appeal with economic and environmental benefits.

Introduced to the market in May 2016, Volvo’s V60 D5 Twin Engine has CO2 emissions of just 48g/km and qualifies for a Government plug-in car grant of £2,500, as well as a 100% first year writing down allowance and a Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate of just 7% this year.

The popularity of Volvo’s plug-in electric hybrid vehicles is demonstrated by the XC90 T8 Twin Engine’s sales figures, which have already exceeded year-to-date sales expectations for 2016 by nearly 10%. From the total of XC90 T8s sold in the UK so far, 57% of them have been fleet orders, split evenly across the Momentum, R-Design and Inscription trim levels.

The V60 has been an especially popular choice with fleet and company car drivers since the introduction of the D2 Business Edition and the D6 Twin Engine models to the V60 family. 

“The addition of the V60 D5 Twin Engine will only increase the V60’s appeal for business users, thanks to its impressive CO2 and tax figures, and build on our global electrification strategy of introducing other plug-in hybrid vehicles to our range”, said Selwyn Cooper, head of business sales for Volvo Car UK.
