For the model year 2017, Volvo added a cheaper and less powerful entry level version of the V60 plug-in hybrid, called V60 D5 Twin Engine.

According to Volvo, the V60 D5 Twin Engine should appeal to people who use it for business. They are aiming at customers who look for a comfortable but less powerful and less expensive car with lower consumption and emissions.

All in all, the car features the same five-cylinder diesel engine with an electric motor, which was de-tuned from 162 kW to 120 kW in the V60 D6 Twin Engine.

Battery pack remains the same, so the electric range should be the same as it is with the more powerful variant: up to 52 kilometers, according to the NEDC range or about 37 kilometers, according to a more real-world suited EPA range. Since we are talking about practically the same combustion engine, the emissions of CO2 also remain on the same 48 g/km level for both V60 models.
