Today, a 1969cc petrol I4 develops 303hp and, aided and abetted by a 87hp electric motor, gives you the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain, with a total output of 390hp. Top speed: 155mph. Not your grandfather’s Volvo. This is the third generation S60 now and it is made in the US, another sea change for the Swedish brand which also sells cars worldwide made in China. You can’t tell as quality appears identical regardless of source, in a showroom-style inspection. The launch T5 turbocharged 250hp petrol unit has been joined by this all-wheel-drive T8 combo and other powertrains. The 11.8kWh battery provides an electric-only range of up to 36 miles, with CO2 emissions from just 39g/km. Fuel economy (on the WLTP combined cycle) is up to 176.5mpg. We couldn’t verify electric range as the poor thing was charging from almost ‘empty’ when we nabbed it but what little distance we could do on ‘lecky’ showed adequate performance for sneaking around the neighbourhood or downtown where EVs work best. Unless I am very lucky, the EV range would fa...
