Volvo CEO Stefan Jacoby announced that the Volvo V60 plug-in hybrid will come to the U.S. by 2014, with one major difference. While the European market V60 will use a diesel-electric hybrid system, the United States will get a gasoline-powered variant.

Jacoby said that the V60 has a target U.S. launch date of 2013 or 2014, since more engineering of the gasoline powertrain will be carried out in advance of the launch. The V60 joins the limited production all-electric C30, and an electric car with a hydrogen fuel-cell range extender in the near future.

    No diesel? Don’t bother sending it over!

    I have already decided my next new car WILL BE a Diesel. Have owned three in the past, and they are great to drive.

    Seems a shame Volvo won’t step up and get into the market again. One of the three I had was an 85 Volvo 740 GLE turbodiesel with manual trans, likely the best car I have owned. Looks like only reasonable option will be one of the Volkswagens.

    Oh well, looks like Zhejiang Geely will kill Volvo in the US market.

    Without a few interesting changes, it won’t be missed

    The apparent refusal by any company to satisfy clear US demand for a plug-in diesel hybrid smacks of auto/oil industry collusion and political corruption.

    I own a 2010 VOLKSWAGEN TDI JETTA
    I GET ABOUT 42 MPG ON THE HIGHWAY

    A DIESEL PLUG IN HYBRID WITH A SOLAR PANEL ON THE ROOF WILL GO A LONG WAY TOWARDS REDUCING USA IMPORTS OF OIL .

    WHERE IS OUR GOVT ??????

    amazing failure.

    without diesel, don’t even bother.
