Volvo is set to release a special edition of just 500 of its new V60 D5 Twin Engine to celebrate the latest addition to its plug-in hybrid technology range.

The car follows the success of the V60 D6 Twin Engine -- the top-selling plug-in hybrid in the European premium segment.

The model will deliver 120 kW via the combustion engine and about 50 kW from its 11.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack using the same proven configuration used in the V60 D6 Twin Engine. This translates to a maximum driveline power output of approximately 230 hp when the electric motor and diesel engine are working simultaneously.

A regular V60 D5 Twin Engine will be made more widely available later this spring.
