Volvo’s first plug-in hybrid is its first step into this new world and is part of its broader aim to bring its cars in line with other manufacturers, but is the V60 hybrid worth taking the leap for?

Volvo is cleaning up its act. Not that it had anything particularly negative to come back from, but this marks a new era for the company as it looks to move on from just being that company that makes particularly safe cars, to being one that makes cars that are also less harmful to the environment.
