In the category of we certainly did not see this one coming, we feature Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid sales in...the Netherlands.
Volvo reports that sales of the V60 Plug-In Hybrid nearly hit 1,000 units in the Netherlands last month.
To rephrase it, October sales of the Volvo V60 plug-in almost broke the 1,000-unit barrier in a single country.
Sheesh, that's a whole lot of plug-in Volvos sold in the Netherlands.
"In Europe, the Netherlands continues to be the growth driver thanks to a high and stable demand for the attractive low-CO2 versions of the Volvo V40. The Netherlands is also the biggest market for the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid with close to 1,000 sold cars in October alone."
YTD figures for the V60 plug in in the Netherlands now stand at a shockingly high 1,794 plus ~1,000. Sure, it's not a precise figure, but we can definitively say that the V60 plug-in is easily the top-selling plug-in in the Netherlands in 2013. The next closest vehicle is likely the Prius Plug-In with ~1,400 units sold.
Volvo reports that, overall, China remains its biggest market, though the automaker doesn't sell plug-ins in China.
Unfortunately, the V60 Plug-In Hybrid isn't offered in the US either.
