The super-efficient Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid - one of the best-selling hybrid-electrified vehicles in Europe in 2013 - is now also available in Volvo Cars’ R-Design version.

“We sold almost 8,000 plug-in hybrids in 2013. Adding the R-Design dynamic attributes to the V60 Plug-in Hybrid – the world’s first diesel plug-in hybrid - will give its attractiveness another boost. The customer gets segment-topping performance combined with outstanding efficiency,” says Alain Visser, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Group.

Unique exterior and interior.
The V60 Plug-in Hybrid R-Design version features a number of unique interior and exterior features that create a sporty presence. The exterior blends the Plug-in Hybrid identification with the R-Design front, rear diffusor and 18-inch ‘Ixion’ wheels.

Inside, the car comes with a full R-Design interior design. Sport seats, featuring a blend of black nubuck textile and perforated leather, are standard. By blending inlays with a perforated look, black leather and contrasting stitching, the design team has created an R-design interior with all the details in perfect harmony, crowned by the black headliner. The car retains the special plug-in hybrid instrumentation and information.

Ingenious power blend.
The front wheels of the V60 Plug-in Hybrid are powered by a five-cylinder 2.4-litre turbodiesel producing 215 hp and 440 Nm of torque. The car has a six-speed automatic transmission.

The rear axle is powered by an electric motor producing 68 horsepower and 200 Nm. It is supplied with power from an 11.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack installed under the floor of the load compartment.

Pure Hybrid Power.
The driver selects the required driving mode via three buttons that give the car three entirely different temperaments: Pure, Hybrid or Power.

In the default hybrid mode, the carbon dioxide emissions are down to just 48g/km. This corresponds to fuel consumption of 1.8 litres/100 km (NEDC certification driving cycle for hybrids).

What is more, at the touch of a button the driver can choose to cover up to 50 kilometres on pure electric power – or utilise the combined capacity of the diesel engine and electric motor to create a veritable driving machine that offers 283 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque.

(March 2006). Volvo is introducing a reworked identity as part of widespread changes to the way it markets itself.

The Swedish motor vehicle manufacturer has appointed branding agency Bite to develop its logo as part of a plan to elevate the marque's iron symbol to give it the same level of prominence as the Volvo mark.

The changes, which are the brand's most significant in 75 years, are intended to eradicate inconsistencies in the application of the Volvo identity across its models and communications.

The company also wants to make greater use of the iron symbol, which it claims is recognised as a good illustration of the strength and endurance of its vehicles.

The changes to the logo are subtle, with the iron mark now more curved and thicker bevelled edges. The shape of the arrow has also been changed slightly. The blue of the "Volvo" script is retained, but the silver used for the iron mark is now a softer matt shade in an attempt to give it a more luxurious feel.

The new look will be introduced across all the brand's promotional activity -- previously it had used only the word "Volvo".

The reworked logo will first appear on the C30 model, which is due to be launched at the Paris Motor Show in September, and international promotional material for the model. Volvo hopes the C30 will rid it of its traditional association as a safe choice of family car and make it appeal to a younger and broader audience.

The changes follow Volvo's decision to relaunch its customer magazine, which is produced by Redwood Publishing.
