Hybrid Mode
The hybrid-powered XC60 T8 offers different modes not available with the other powertrains. Hybrid mode is the default, but if the batteries are charged the driver can select Pure mode. Pure prioritizes use of the electric motor only, but to do this the climate control is set to Eco, performance is limited and top speed is 78 mph. The gasoline engine will come on if speeds exceed 78 mph, or if the driver demands more power via the throttle.
