Volvo has unveiled a D5 Twin Engine Special Edition of its V60 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid vehicle, the automaker announced.

The V60 D5 Twin Engine is expected to produce 120 kilowatts through the combustion engine and about 50 kilowatts from its 11.2 killowatt per hour lithium-ion battery pack using the same configuration used in the V60 D6 Twin Engine, according to Volvo. This translates to a maximum driveline power output of approximately 230 hp when the electric motor and diesel engine are working simultaneously.

The Special Edition features crystal white exterior paint, 19-inch wheels, and glossy black exterior detailing. Inside, the car is equipped with a black headliner and piano black trim.

Volvo will built 500 of the special edition model, while a regular V60 D5 Twin Engine will be more widely available in the spring, Volvo said.
