Home charging of the Volvo V70 Plug-in hybrid demonstration car.
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. The Plug-in hybrid demonstration car is a Volvo V70 with a combined electric motor and fuel-efficient diesel engine, enabling convenient, economical and emission-free driving. The range when driving on the battery is up to 50 km. When the battery is charged with electricity from renewable sources the environmental footprint from a lifecycle perspective is very low. 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. To charge the Lithium-Ion battery from a fast charging station it takes 1.5–2.5 hours and from a wall-socket at home it takes 4–6 hours.
