    will it start the engine if I slam on accelerator in pure mode? And what's the power or electric motor only?

    In the USA Volvo V60 PHEV can only be ordered with petrol/gasoline T8 engine in high trim starting at 68000 $.EPA rates it realistically having 22 miles or 35 km pure EV range and fuel economy when battery depleted 27 MPG or 8.7 Liters per 100 km. It is the only one, the last surviving PHEV in real station wagon/estate body shape on the market in the USA.

    Bought a 2016 with 180k. My best is 48km in pure mode, with the AC off. Which is decent, but it did take some practice. I recharge mine at home, just plug it into a 220v wall outlet in my garage. A full recharge takes about 3.5 hours. Again, not that bad. Cargo space was suprisingly doable for a family of four. Lastly, the diesel won't bother you too much once you understand the logic of this car. The diesel is audible, but at low speeds only. And that's when you should be driving in pure mode. Once you get to know the car, it will all make sense.

      @Marek Drives Exactly, very good point. It has to fit your daily routine. Today I do most of my driving within a 75km range. Once I go beyond that my gains begin to disappear quite rapidly. Though the diesel returns about 18.5km/liter. Which is not bad, coming from a petrol engine car. I bought it for 16.5k in the Netherlands with a full 6 month warrantee. You can get them cheaper but this one came with all the right papers and was exclusively Volvo maintained. Which is important because you don't want some tinkerbell patching up a car like this. Too many things can go wrong and you, the owner will end up paying for it. Marek, I like your videos. Could you maybe in the future spend some time looking into rising service costs of cars now that manufacturers stuff them more and more with complex and sensitive electronics? I have a feeling that what we're saving in fuel economy comes back twice as hard on repair charges. Not that my car has had issues but it's a matter of time I'm sure. Anyway, thanks Marek!

      @Gabor Moolenaar that's the thing. I hear everyone complaining about getting big bills on car repairs, but I don't know anyone, who's actually received one. Increasingly often you can buy a service plan with a new car.I've been driving one car for 8 years now, and it's literally only oil/filter change, brake pads, etc. I get the impression the problem is with cars that haven't been properly maintained and/or the owners haven't been persistent enough to make sure their warranty claim is honoured. That being said, I realise not all service outlets are equally good.

      Well, maybe it's just hearsay then. I certainly hope so. The last 10 years I only drove Volvo's and they never let me down, not once. Service was cheap because I did not have to bring it to the dealership. The S80 was primitive technique, anyone can fix it. I'll look into Volvo service plan, thanks for the tip.

      What's the fuel consumption like at highway speeds? 130km/h diesel only?

      @Ciprian Caba hi, well that's probably when you start losing the advantages of a car like this. It's somewhere near 6.5 liters/ 100km. However, when reducing speed to 100km/h you will do 5 liters per 100km. Which is pretty decent, though you'll still do better with the D4. What is also important to know is that you will lose your advantage, too if you do not drive electric inside city limits. The diesel is a thirsty one in traffic. I always keep some electric juice in reserve for this purpose. In order to get the advantages of hybrid, you'll always need to calculate the nature of your trip. That's my experience sofar, after 5K kilometers. Unfortunately, if it weren't for government subsidies, savings in fuel appear quite small as charging the car is not without cost either. Unless your employer allows you to recharge for free at the office. Many firms do. Hope this helps!
