Just leased an 2019 S60 T8 Inscription. Like it a lot.

I noticed that the center console slide door ("blind") that covers the cup holders is black plastic. I believe the non-hybrid S60 Inscriptions have wood trim slides, which look much nicer to me.

I believe the dimensions are slightly different in the T8 due to the battery, so I'm guessing Volvo decided not to make wood trim blinds for the T8 center consoles.

So, all of you S60 T8 owners: do you also have black blinds for the cup holders?

You're correct, the only option for center console trim on PHEVs is piano black. Interesting fact that the cupholders on hybrids are actually part of the console framework itself, unlike the non-hybrid models.

The main and most probable reason from my perspective is that since there's already 5 variants of jalousies (the sliding cover), it would be cost prohibitive to have 3 more (excluding the 2 base materials) smaller versions (since there's no 12V area with the cupholders on hybrids) for the <25% of cars that T8s make up.
