D5 Twin Engine added to Volvo V60 range

Volvo has updated its V60 plug-in hybrid with the new D5 engine and a lower price.

Volvo’s V60 D5 Twin Engine boasts CO2 emissions of 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 Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rate of 7% this year.

Commercial print and packaging business, Elanders UK, recently placed an order for six V60 D5 Twin Engines, also taking an XC90 T8 onto their fleet. “The D5 Twin Engine version of Volvo’s V60 made such a strong impression with myself and the team that it instantly became the front-runner in our choice of new vehicles,”saids Chris Hewitt, managing director for Elanders UK.

“At Elanders, we strive to operate our business in the most ethical, safe and environmentally responsible way. Volvo’s Twin Engine technology combines the benefits of a pure electric drive, high performance and great fuel economy, making the V60 and XC90 T8 the perfect choices for our fleet cars.”

“The V60 blends together all the essential work and home life features, including power and efficiency, class-leading safety systems and connective technology, striking the perfect balance for company car users,” added Selwyn Cooper, head of business sales for Volvo Car UK.

“The addition of the V60 D5 Twin Engine builds on our global electrification strategy of introducing other plug-in hybrid vehicles to our range.”

The new model is priced at £35,000 after plug-in car grant.
