The Chinese are getting an S60L, extended length, with a hybred drivetrain and reportedly 117MPG. Now, I realize that is probably Imperial gallons, but if the car were introduced to the Europe and USA markets, it would put the other manufacturers to shame!! Pluse, what a marketing boost!
Along with 240 bhp and 250 lbs of torque, that sounds like a winner. With the 2015 engines already here, why not add the electric rear drive? Or is that a no-no for the NJ group? I am sure the Europeans would love a diesel version as much as we would love a solid car that gets close to 100mpg. Heck, you could reduce the size of the gasoline tank to 10 gallons to offset the weight of the NiCad batteries.
