Volvo Car Group unveils V60 Bi-Fuel car in Sweden

11 June 2013

The Volvo Car Group unveiled its new Volvo V60 Bi-Fuel car in conjunction with the NGV 2013 Gothenburg event being held from 11 to 13 June at the Swedish Exhibition Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden. Sales for the new product will start in October 2013 in Sweden.

The V60 Bi-Fuel model is equipped with a 2.0L, five-cylinder 213 hp (159 kW) turbocharged gasoline engine fitted with a natural gas fueling system from Westport Innovations. The engine is produced at the Volvo Car Group engine plant in Skövde.

 

The V60 Bi-Fuel runs on either compressed natural gas (CNG)/biomethane or gasoline, and offers a total driving range of 1,120 kilometers (696 miles).

Westport and Volvo Car Group are currently in discussions to expand the Volvo V60 Bi-Fuel car into other markets.

Since 2009, Westport—the sole supplier of natural gas fuel systems to Volvo Car Group—has developed and installed natural gas systems for the Volvo V70 estate car at a facility located inside Volvo’s main production centre in Gothenburg, Sweden.
