Volvo brings together its sporty R-Design line with the efficiency of a hybrid drivetrain with the new 2015 Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid R-Design. Volvo did well in 2013 with its diesel V60 Plug-In Hybrid, selling more than 8,000 plug-in hybrids over the year and is adding a higher performance option to the lineup with the R-Design, adding the R-Design front, rear diffusor and 18-inch “Ixion” wheels.

Inside, the R-Design interior includes sport seats in black nubuck textile and perforated leather crowned by a black headliner. The car’s drivetrain includes a 215 horsepower 2.4-liter turbodiesel engine combined with a 68 horsepower electric motor on the rear axle. The combination of R-Design styling and the diesel hybrid system makes this one of the sportiest hybrids on the road today — except for maybe the Porsche 918 Spyder and the McLaren P1 of course.
