The Volvo V70 Plug-in hybrid demonstration car fuelling up at a public charging station.
Volvo Car Corporation and Swedish energy company Vattenfall drive the development of Plug-in hybrid technology. In a unique joint venture the two companies will put cutting-edge Plug-in hybrid cars on the market in 2012. A demonstration fleet of the Plug-in hybrids will be tested during 2009 to gather information about the customers’ demands on performance, driving experience and fuel options. Within this project a charging station for fast charging has been developed. It takes 1.5–2.5 hours to charge the Lithium-Ion battery from the charging station. The Plug-in hybrid demonstration cars have a charge port under the fuel cap at the rear for fast charging at public charging stations and one at the front for home charging.
