Driving Modes

400:8000|The car has several driving modes in which power alternates between an electric motor and a diesel engine in different ways. 8500:23000|The default driving mode is Hybrid where the control module uses both the electric motor and the diesel engine – separately or in tandem – and optimises their use with respect to performance, fuel consumption and comfort. 24000:31700|Pure – enables you to drive with low energy consumption and maximises driving with the help of the hybrid battery. 32000:35900|In order to conserve energy, the air conditioning is switched off. 36100:44000|Hybrid – uses the electric motor and the diesel engine optimally to utilise electric power as much as possible. 44600:53000|Power – offers the best response and performance by utilising both the electric motor and the diesel engine for sportier driving. 53500:62000|Save – conserves the hybrid battery’s charge for later use, for example if you know that you’ll be driving a lot in city traffic. 62200:68000|AWD – activates four-wheel drive for better traction and road holding.


400:13500|Preconditioning means that the car’s engine and cabin are heated or cooled to reduce engine wear and energy consumption while driving, enabling you to drive farther using electrical power. 14000:20500|Activate the electrical preconditioning function by pressing OK on the left-hand steering wheel stalk. 20600:26000|Scroll with the thumb wheel to Preconditioning and confirm by pressing OK. 26500:31000|Scroll with the thumb wheel to Indoor parking and confirm by pressing OK. 31500:36000|Select what is to be activated by the electrical preheating function. 36500:39700|Press Reset to exit the menu. 40500:45000|Using the timer is a practical way to start preconditioning the car. 45200:51500|You decide when you’ll need the car and the electronics determine when preconditioning should start. 52000:56900|Begin setting the timer by pressing OK and scrolling to Preconditioning. 57000:62700|Confirm by pressing OK. Select a timer and press OK. 63700:67800|Press OK briefly again to set the time. 68000:71500|Select the desired hour and press OK. 72000:75500|Select the desired minute and press OK. 76000:79700|Press OK again to activate the timer. 81000:89500|If you have a Personal Car Communicator (PCC), you can also start preconditioning at any time using the remote key. 89700:94000|Press and hold the Approach lighting button for 2 seconds. 94300:99800|The car will confirm that the signal has been received by flashing its lights briefly 5 times. 100000:108500|If these lights then glow steadily for approximately 3 seconds, this indicates that preconditioning has started. 108600:115000|If this doesn’t occur, preconditioning is not currently possible.

Mobile App

400:8300|With the Volvo On Call mobile app for the iPhone and Android phones, you can monitor and control the car’s charging and preconditioning. 9000:12000|This app offers a number of practical features. 12500:18000|For example, you can see the charge status and decide when the car should be heated or cooled. 18500:24000|Download this app and stay in touch with your car, wherever you may be.

Smart features

940:5015|This selection of smart features will help make your driving easier. 6661:14184|The automatic climate controll has a preset button for efficient defrosting.

In reverse gear, press L or R to tilt the desired mirror. 47647:50808|This is only on cars with electrically operated front seats.

Helpful hints

1200:4597|These helpful hints will help you avoid some distractions. 5102:13322|There are three 12 V electrical sockets. One in the center console, another one on the rear side of the console and finally one in the boot. 14158:20114|The socket in the boot is always live and may drain the battery if used when the engine isn't running. 21002:27506|The distance to empty tank is calculated from the average fuel consumption during the previous 30 kilometers. 28264:32757|This means that if you start driving more aggressively it might not be totally accurate. 33776:39262|The instrument lighting is automatically adjusted, based on input from the light sensor on the dashboard. 40019:45740|There is a delay which means lighting may be adapted to night driving when exiting long tunnels. 46471:57861|The electrical parking brake is set by pushing the parking brake button. Release it manually by pulling the button, or automatially by driving off in first gear. 58592:69694|One final piece of advice from Volvos paint experts: only hand wash the car during the first few months since the paint is more sensitive until it is fully hardened.

The worlds first luxury diesel Plug-in Hybrid

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is the worlds first luxury diesel Plug-in Hybrid that also runs on pure electricity. Drive daily up to 50 km (31 miles) with zero emissions, in the same car that can take you in extreme comfort across the continent at a speed of up to 230 km/h (142 mph) with a range up to 900 km (560 miles).
Three driving modes, Pure, Hybrid and Power let you choose your driving experience.

In Pure mode the Diesel engine shuts off, letting the electric motor do all the work for a distance of up to 50 km (31 miles), so you can enjoy your daily drive in silence, with zero tailpipe emissions.

In Hybrid mode both the Diesel and the electric motor work in symbiosis for you, using only 1.8 litres of fuel per 100 km (155.2 mpg), and emitting a minimal 48 grams of CO2 per km, up to 900 km (560 miles). Letting you appreciate the journey, without unnecessary stops and interruptions.

The Power mode will make the Diesel and electric motors combine forces and deliver up to 280 horsepower, letting you go from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.1 seconds.
