A V60 Plug-in Hybrid is driven and operated in the same way as a car with a conventional internal combustion engine and automatic gearbox.

The exception is that with the gear selector in manual gear position (+/-) the diesel engine will always be running. The driver must then change manually and the car engine brakes when the accelerator pedal is released, see .


To prevent damage to any drive system components, the working temperature of the gearbox is checked. If there is a risk of overheating, a warning symbol is illuminated in the combined instrument panel in conjunction with a text message being shown. Follow the recommendation given in the text message.
