Hi

Any news on further diesel hybrids from Volvo?

I appreciate the V60 D6 has now been complimented with a additional lower power D5 Twin Engine version.

Plans for diesel hybrids for other models including the XC90? So far only a gasoline T8 for the XC90.

Given the combined excellent fuel economy of the diesel-hybrid over the gasoline-hybrid and the V60s great sales success (the only other diesel hybrid is the Peugeot) I presume further diesel hybrids will be available.

Current non-plug in gasoline hybrids are more expensive but get almost identical fuel consumption as diesel models (I appreciate not something you get in the US). Where diesel is available diesel-hybrids offer an even better product in terms of fuel cost saving

The focus in this year is XC90... Yes, make enough XC90 first, and sell more Volvo in US. :)
Diesel is not for US anyways. What about sell some hybrid V60 in US?

What I presume is the diesel+electric for upcoming S90. In Europe there is a need for car which could compete against A6 3.0 TDI or Mercedes E 350 CDI (diesel ~ 250-300 PS)
