    I understand Volvo is coming to the US Market next year with XC60 T8 PHEV. I will be retiring in the next couple years and one criteria we set for ourselves was to purchase a PHEV in a Crossover type vehicle. The XC90 T8 was more money that I care to spend. Hopefully the XC60 is more attainable. Any idea what the pricing will be for the XC60 T8?

      Hey John, I too am very interested in the XC60 Plugin Hybrid. Looked on Edmunds yesterday and while they don’t have a review yet, they do have pricing! If accurate, they suggest the XC60 Plugin will start at $53k and will be eligible for a $5k US federal tax credit based on the 10 kWh battery. I will definitely test drive one when they hit dealers this fall, and as long as 20 miles of electric driving is doable I may pull the trigger. Hope this helps you.
