Volvo is saying the V60 is the first plug-in diesel hybrid in the world and it might technically be correct because it appears to be the first being brought to market.
This has been the winter to try men's souls to badly paraphrase a historical saying.
The new all-wheel-drive Volvo S60s will be introduced at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, in late April for the fourth round of the World Challenge schedule.
Most noticeable in their absence from the finalists for the World Car of the Year are the North American Car and Truck of the Year winners: the Chevrolet Volt and the Ford Explorer.
It is a lesson in safety, according to an email sent to the media by Volvo.
This latest Volvo recall, which applies to S40, S60, V50 and XC60 models from 2009-2011, is based on a concern over the amount of travel in the front passenger’s seat rails.
It seems that in the 6,046 sedans and SUVs affected by this new Volvo recall, there is an ECM fuel cutoff parameter that is “too sensitive”.
