Electric Vehicle) Concept Car at the 2014 Beijing International Auto Show.
to a company statement, the production version of the S60L Petrol Plug-in
Hybrid, with an exceptionally CO2-efficient 238 horsepower Drive-E petrol turbo
and plug-in hybrid technology, will be launched in China early 2015 and will be
produced at the Chengdu plant.
creation of a powertrain with 238+68 hp and 350+200 Nm of torque by combining a
petrol turbo from our new four-cylinder Drive-E engine family and an electric
motor proves that the most efficient car can also be the most fun to drive.
This is our most technologically advanced powertrain ever. It brings us closer
to our vision to offer zero-emission motoring in the future,” says Peter
Mertens, Senior Vice President, Research and Development at Volvo Cars.
The S60L PPHEV (Petrol Plug-in Hybrid Electric
Vehicle) Concept Car features the same electrification technology as the Volvo
V60 Plug-in Hybrid, the world’s first diesel plug-in hybrid, which has been a
groundbreaking success on the European markets.
In the S60L, however, the diesel engine of the
V60 has been replaced with a new, two-litre, four-cylinder petrol turbo from
Volvo Cars’ new Drive-E engine family. It boasts 238 hp and 350 Nm of torque.
Other key components in the super-efficient powertrain is a crankshaft-driven
ISG (Integrated Starter Generator) between the engine and the 8-speed automatic
gearbox and a 68 hp electric motor powered by a 11.2 kWh lithium-ion battery
pack installed under the floor of the load compartment.
