At the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Volvo Car Corporation will bare an avant-garde gasoline constituent hybrid. The Volvo XC60 Constituent Amalgam Concept is an electric car, a awful economical amalgam and a able high-performance car all formed into one. At the blow of a button, the disciplinarian decides how the accessible ability from the aggregate of the high-performance gasoline engine and the electric motor is to be utilized.

"The technology in the XC60 Constituent Amalgam Concept is as able as it is unique," says Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation.

No added architect has succeeded in carrying ammunition abridgement and electrical ambit on this akin in a capable, ample achievement car with 350 application on tap."

Pure Hybrid Power - three cars in one

The driver chooses the driving mode via three buttons on the instrument panel. The buttons give the car three distinct temperaments: Pure, Hybrid or Power.

  • In Pure mode the car is powered solely by its electric motor as much as possible. The operational range is up to 35 miles (charge depleting range, U.S certification driving cycle) with zero tailpipe emissions in urban traffic. The range according to the European certification driving cycle NEDC is 45 km.
  • Hybrid mode is the standard setting whenever the car is started. The gasoline engine and electric motor cooperate to provide maximum driving pleasure with minimum environmental impact.
